I want to have a upper lip lift to feminize more my face, it measures 21 mm. and I don't show any teeth, I talked with my surgeon and she told me she can do it, i'm not scare for the scar, although of my brown skin all my scars fade very well, (my surgeon told me we can use the co2 laser if is need it) but I don't want to show more of the red portion, I don't want a huge lips, i'm afraid even it can looks very unnatural, but i want to have a shortest philtrum for a more femenine look.
Is the upper lip lift a good option in my facial feminization? (photo)
