Botti, Giovanni M.D.; Botti, Chiara B.S.; Cella, Antonio M.D.

Collapse Box


: A technique for the correction of excessively thick lips caused by injections of allogeneic substances is presented in this article. In most cases, surgical removal is the best possible solution to this problem because the materials mentioned above completely blend with the surrounding tissues. Twenty-four patients underwent surgical lip-volume reduction. The results were satisfactory in all of the patients. (Plast. Reconstr. Surg. 110: 1329, 2002.)
