Will A Lip Lift Keep My Lips Still Looking ‘Male’?

Q: Dr. Eppley, Would in my situation a lip lift + lip reduction work for this purpose? I know that my Philtrum isn’t long. I’d like, however, keep my lips “male” Thank you!

A: What makes a lip look more feminine from a lip lift is the change in the shape of the cupid’s bow….which will not be affected by a lip reduction done at the lower edge of the lip. Effeminate lips are more about shape than the size of the vermilion.
