Is The V-Y Mucosal Advancement Appropriate For The Lip Look I Want?
Q: Dr. Eppley, Would I be suited more to the V to Y mucosal advancement lip lift? As there is no scar but not sure it would achieve the look I want?
I like the curved off look going from the top to the sides rather than straight diagonally down, so that it gives a more fuller top lip
I’d like my top lip practically matching my bottom lip for size
Also if you can tell me is the scar noticeable on the Gullwing liplift?
Here are a few photos top 3 are me the rest are how I want my upper lip to look.
A: The vermilion advancement procedure is the correct lip reshaping procedure given your objectives. ironically the scar line in men does better than in women because of the hair bearing skin. (see attached)
