Lip Lift & Filler
In order to provide a more feminine look for the lips, a couple of procedures are available as part of your Facial Feminization Surgery.
Dr. Cardenas recommends a lip lift for some patients. This procedure is done in order to reduce the distance between the bottom of the nose and the top lip. In order to accomplish this goal, an incision is made under the nose and a portion of skin is removed in order to raise the lip up.
In other patients, a fat transfer to the lips may be the best approach. In this procedure, a portion of your own fat is transferred from another part of your body.
