When the space between the nose and lip seems disproportionately long and the upper lip looks too thin, a bull horn lift may be the solution. Longer upper lips may be due to genetics, but aging can also cause this appearance when the upper lip becomes thinner. A bullhorn lip lift addresses both concerns, reducing the length and revealing more of the pink upper lip. Dr. Gary Linkov offers bullhorn lip lift surgery at City Facial Plastics, located on the Upper East Side of NYC.

How is a Bullhorn Lip Lift Performed?
A bullhorn lip lift, also called a subnasal lip lift, involves reducing the skin between the upper lip and nose base. A horizontal incision is made at the base of the nose. A small amount of skin is then removed to shorten the distance between the lip and nose. When closing the incision, the skin flap is anchored to the sturdy tissue at the nose base, elevating the upper lip. This reveals more of the pink lip, making the upper lip look fuller. The result is a proportionate space between the mouth and nose with an upper lip that is full and more defined for a sensuous, youthful appearance.
A lip lift can do more than just improve your mouth. It can create a more balanced, beautiful appearance to your facial features. To learn more about the bullhorn lip lift procedure or any of our other cosmetic solutions, contact City Facial Plastics to schedule a consultation with Dr. Linkov.
