Although lip lift falls into the category of lip enlargement, it is not an operation performed with injectable or permanent fillers, but a surgical technique that requires intervention on the skin above the lip. It is also called Bullhorn Lip Lift.
What is Lip Lift?
You may have a thin or a less fullness on your lips due to aging. Lip lift is a procedure aimed at making the pink part of the upper lip more visible. With this procedure the distance between the upper lip and the base of the nose is shortened, which sometimes is the only problem. The surgical method may be an alternative to injectable fillers (Lip Filler) or sometimes it may be necessary to consider both together. It is also a good option for people looking for a natural looking lip enhancement effect.
Who are the good candidates for Lip Lift?
If you have a thin upper lip,
If your teeth are less visible when you smile,
if you have a long philtrum (distance between area that you applied lipstick and nose base),
if you are tired of getting lip fillers,
lip lift may be a good option for you.

At the end of the operation thin bandages which stay five days will be applied over wound. There will be no stitches to be taken off as they all are resolvable and hidden.
