Lip Repositioning Surgery
Lip repositioning surgery is a lot less scary than it sounds! The procedure is a very effective approach to treating a gummy smile. The treatment is a short and minimally invasive surgery which has little recovery time and is done entirely intraorally and so leaves no external scarring. The treatment is carried out by a Specialist Surgeon under local anesthesia and takes approximately 30-45 minutes to complete. The surgeon will remove a small strip of tissue from the junction where your lip meets your gum and then sutures the lip into a new, lower position dramatically improving the look of a gummy smile.
