Lip Excision

Lip Excision in Birmingham, Ann Arbor and Detroit

Targeted Treatment to Correct the Lips


Lip excision is performed to remove silicone or lesions that develop on the lips. Given the importance of lips in speaking, eating and performing other tasks, special techniques are required to preserve their function and appearance.

Lesions on the lips can greatly impact your quality of life, but with meticulous lip excision, these lesions can be removed. Whether these lesions are benign or malignant, you can remove them permanently in a single treatment session.

The Procedure

Recovery time 

The recovery period following lip excision can last up to one month, although it may be less depending on the extent of surgery performed. We will provide detailed instructions on post-operative care after assessing your condition and planning your treatment.


Lip excision can permanently remove lesions and other growths from the lips. These results will be visible once the lips have fully healed.

What Can You Eat After Lip Surgery?

In the days following your lip excision, you will need to eat exclusively liquid and soft foods. This includes things like beverages, soups, smoothies and mashed potatoes. A few days after this, you can adjust your diet to include softer foods. Within a week or two, you will be able to resume eating a standard diet.

Will There Be Scarring After Lip Excision?

With any excisional techniques, there will be some degree of scarring. With lip excision, we have the ability to make incisions on the inside of the lips. This means that any scarring can be hidden on the inside of the mouth, where it will be virtually invisible. However, the exact location and extent of any scarring will be dependent on your condition and the surgical techniques required.

How Do You Reduce Swelling After Lip Surgery?

Following your lip excision, using ice packs can help alleviate swelling as well as soreness or discomfort. Additionally, over-the-counter pain relievers can be used to manage pain throughout your recovery process.
