What Does A Bullhorn Lip Lift Do?

By November 8, 2021 No Comments
In the last decade, the lips have become the focus of many cosmetic procedures, including lip filler. Though it is not just non-surgical lip enhancements that have gained popularity, surgical ones have as well. One of these is the lip lift. At The Gallery of Cosmetic Surgery, Dr. Jonov primarily performs the bullhorn lip lift. What does a bullhorn lip lift do?   There are two main objectives that a lip lift can achieve. First, it can shorten the distance between the upper lip and nose. For some people, this length of skin may cause their lips to look thin, contribute to an unwanted masculine appearance, or otherwise cause concerns. Secondly, for patients with a thin upper lip, a lip lift can expose more of the red or pink part of the lip. This can be revolutionary for a patient self conscious about their thin lips.   The bullhorn lip lift technique uses an incision that resembles bullhorns. Located along the upper lip, it is well hidden in the natural transition between your skin and lips. It removes skin and then elevates the upper lip into its new position. It is a fairly quick and non-invasive procedure.   To learn more and schedule a consultation, call us at 425-775-3561.
