Lips play an important role in facial expression, conveying a wide range of emotions through their shape and movement. The size of the lips is an important factor in determining their attractiveness. A person’s perception of beauty is greatly influenced by the shape and volume of their lips. The symmetry and aesthetics of the face are greatly influenced by the lips.

Nowadays, lip reduction surgery is very common among people who are unhappy with the size of their lips and want to reduce their size. The proportion of the lips to the rest of the facial structures is just as important to lip aesthetics as the projection and relative sizes of the upper and lower lips.
