What can be done for protruding lips?

A lip reduction procedure will help you tremendously. A lip reduction procedure entails incisions inside your mouth and lips and resecting a portion of the lips to reduce the overall size.  This procedure can be done in an outpatient setting and should take about 1 hour or so.  It is relatively a low risk procedure and it can be done under just local anesthesia or with iv sedation.  General anesthesia is not necessary and actually makes is harder in some ways.

Hope that helps!
