Bullhorn Lip Lift: An Alternative Procedure for Achieving Fuller Lips without Fillers

Bullhorn Lip Lift: An Alternative Procedure for Achieving Fuller Lips without Fillers

As she got older, Sue noticed that her lips got thinner. She didn’t want to augment her lips with dermal fillers because she’d been discouraged by the results she’d seen on celebrities who had fillers injected into their lips. Her board-certified plastic surgeon recommended a ‘bullhorn lift’ as an alternative procedure to achieve fuller lips.

“He made an incision under my nose along the crease, and then pulled the skin up a bit,” explains Sue. “This procedure allows you to have a little bit of a pucker and fuller upper lip because essentially you are rolling the upper lip up. It results in what’s known as the cupids bow look.”

The surgical procedure was performed under local anesthesia and required about ten stitches that were hardly visible. One of the side effects of being put completely under is vomiting, which could potentially make the stitches come out.

“My ability to eat was not impacted at all. The results were terrific!” exclaims Sue. “My upper lip is now fuller in pictures.”
