I've had lip reduction surgery 7 weeks ago. I'm still in the process of healing. I'm due for a post op check-up in 3 months.
I think you should go for surgery as a last resort for curing ec. I've had my condition just over 16 yrs plus I had naturally larger lips which means I could risk undergoing reduction without looking weird as someone with no lips.
Remember surgery is permenant. You have to make sure it's right for you.
For me, I have zero regrets in getting the surgery done.
