Females often have fuller lips than males so lip filling is often used in feminisation. There are many methods of lip filling from injecting fat, fillers and V-Y flaps.
Things to keep in mind:
- Preferred technique is Fat Transfer
- HA-fillers, but not lasting.
- Fascia strips.
- V-Y flaps in order to outroll the red part of the upper lip.
- Goretex sheets: never done in our practice.
- Silicone implants: never done in our practice.
