What procedures could be done to feminize the orbicularis oris? It sometimes gives the appearance of a mustache/beard shape around the lips under the skin and is very annoying. Would administering small amounts of Botox at a time cause it to atrophy to be more feminine in size? Or what other procedures are available to feminize its size and shape? Would adding fat to the jaws help?

You mention a real frustration and there are many options. A picture would be helpful. Look for a plastic surgeon who has expertise in lips and can discuss the different options with you.

Great question! Many creative ways to "feminize" and beatify lips and "peri-oral" region. The surgeon-artist must evaluate, plan, and perform these office procedures in partnership with each unique patient, considering presenting appearance, anatomic features, and individual goals.
