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.

Dr. Gary Linkov is an experienced facial plastic surgeon who specializes in creating stunning, natural facial alterations. His background in art and sculpture have given him a unique skill set when it comes to mastering the artistry of plastic surgery. Lip enhancements are one of Dr. Linkov’s specialties, using his talent to create balanced, beautiful lips that appear natural. If you have been considering a bullhorn lip lift to improve the symmetry and fullness of your lips, Dr. Linkov can create the results you desire.

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.

Highly recommend! Dr. Gary helped me with painful lip scar tissue after an accidental fall a year earlier. I’ve known Gary for 20 years and since the first day knowing him he’s grown as a medical professional with an innate sense of detail and kind demeanor. Excellent client follow up and post treatment care.

Dr. Gary is a fantastic NYC plastic surgeon who treats me and to whom I would recommend all my friends and family. He has a very conservative approach to fillers and I was extremely impressed with the way he filled my nasolabial lines that had been bothering me for years. It was painless, and I did not experience any bruising at all. Getting this done gave me so much confidence - I wish I worked with him years ago!

Rachel G.
