  • Frenectomy is just the normal procedure and it does not alter the lip shape. You are feeling this because after the surgery there is bit of swelling and because of that you are feeling the tightness in lips and the alteration in the lip shape. When the swelling will go and complete healing is there which can take around 2 to 3 weeks you will feel fine.
