Which procedure should I have done first? (photos)

Looking to have two procedures done; lip lift and alarplasty. Nose is noticeably asymmetrical, want to correct that while reducing width of nostrils in relaxed state/motion/smiling. Goal is to have the distance from base of nose to top lip border measure no more than 1.1cm (11mm). Tooth show desired and top lip to appear fuller/'rolled' up from side view/face aimed downward. Reasonable expectation? Which procedure- lip lift/alarplasty- should be done first or best performed together? Thanks! :)

Dear sandsealove

Thank you for your question and your photos with comments! You are asking very specific questions- the procedures you are inquiring about can be done- BUT , a detailed discussion in person, with a proper examination would need to be done in order to determine if they are appropriate and will give you the results that you are looking for.

With Warm Regards
