A bullhorn lip lift, “subnasal lip lift,” is a surgical procedure that targets the upper lip area. It addresses the upper lip shape and fullness by shortening the distance between the upper lip and the nose. By elevating the upper lip area, you will present a broader, more beautiful smile.
What is a bullhorn lip lift?
A bullhorn lip lift can produce dramatic results, transforming your look. The bullhorn lip lift enhances the upper lip and gives it volume. Not only will it make your face look younger, but it also resolves the look of a thinner upper lip that can leave you looking less friendly and attractive.
How does it work?
Dr. Sajan will make an incision just below the nose, removing the excess skin. The upper lip is lifted, and stitches are hidden in the folds of your nose. A bullhorn lip lift is performed under local anesthesia or IV sedation. After the procedure, you will rest under our care, and then be released to return home.

How is a bullhorn lip lift more beneficial than fillers?
A bullhorn lip lift is a good option for those who are looking for a longer-lasting solution. You may be tired of getting repeat injections and are looking for a lower maintenance solution. Additionally, fillers may not produce the same look after each treatment. With a bullhorn lip lift, the shape and structure of the lip can be addressed, rather than just temporarily plumping the lips.
