The male face typically has a long upper lip with little or no visibility of the upper teeth.The youthful female face is characterized by a shorter distance between the base of the nose and the upper lip with more visibility of the teeth. It is a typical feminine trait that also characterizes youth, as opposed to the upper lip drooping and covering up your teeth which characterizes the aging process.

In regards to the vermillion border, it’s considered more feminine when it’s fleshy and having a good projection. This is also a typical trait of youth. That is why lip augmentation remains one of the most frequently sought after cosmetic procedures performed in aesthetic medicine today.

Feminizing the lips

Your own fat is injected to augment the lips.That fat is is taken from another part of the patient’s body. The effect of injecting mainly on the inner side of the lip, directly under the intra-oral mucosa, is an outward rolling movement which reveals more of the inner lip.

Part of the fat graft will re-absorb, but a significant portion will be permanent. While difficulties remain in the predictability and longevity of fat transfers, the aesthetic effects are often impressive because of the resulting natural appearance.

FAQs before surgery

Sometimes I get asked to model during a photoshoot. How long should I wait to book one after my FFS?

That is a very difficult one. It depends very much upon your healing and we can’t give you any guarantee about how long it takes before you look good enough for a photoshoot.
It could be 4 months, but it could also be a year. Of course it also depends on the amount of work that has been done.

How long does the fat stay?

In general 70% of the fat stays forever. Therefore a little overcorrection is done during the operation.  Repetition is needed for about 50% of our patients. There are many factors that determine how long fat grafting lasts. Some fat is always reabsorbed by the body, the amount can vary considerably from body to body. The fat that stays after 6 months, stays forever. After 6 months, if necessary, another fat graft may be performed until the desired effect has been obtained.
