At Eos Rejuvenation, we hear from many patients who wish to soften their facial features with the goal of achieving a more feminine appearance. Sometimes, these are patients seeking a male-to-female transition; in other instances, they are cisgender or gender-fluid individuals who simply want to modify their look.
Dr. Nima provides a full suite of facial feminization surgeries (FFS), also known as gender affirming surgery. One potential example of this is the lip lift. We invite you to learn more about the role of the lip lift in feminization and about other FFS procedures that may help you reach your cosmetic goals.
Lift Appearance in Males vs. Females
Generally speaking, the female upper lip tends to be a bit shorter in its vertical dimension. Additionally, in most women, the vermillion (red lip) is a little bit thicker. The upshot is that women tend to show a little bit more of their upper teeth, a feature that is widely associated both with femininity and with youth.
Receiving a Lip Lift for Feminization
For patients looking to achieve a more feminine appearance, a lip lift can be an effective solution. Dr. Nima has ample experience performing this procedure, which typically involves altering the vertical distance between the mouth and the lip, both changing the lip’s curvature while also exposing a bit more of the upper teeth.
