Bullhorn Lip Lift in Dubai

The bullhorn lip lift is a surgical procedure that tends to reduce the space between the nostrils and the upper lip. It is designed to give you a young and refreshed look with a broader smile. Also known as sub-nasal lift, bullhorn lift has become one of the most common facial cosmetic surgery procedures. It is done by making a hidden incision directly under the nose and raising the skin to increase the amount of lip shown. In this way, bullhorn lip lift in Dubai augments the size of lips and addresses the issue of innate lip asymmetry.

What is the procedure?

The Bullhorn lip lift procedure requires almost 45 minutes for completion and is performed under local anesthesia.

  • Before starting the procedure, the surgeon will clean and prepare the skin around the mouth.
  • After that, local anesthesia is administered so that you don’t feel any discomfort.
  • During the procedure, an incision is made under the nose which resembles the shape of a bullhorn. This incision is made into the curves under the nose which makes it undetectable.
  • After that, a tiny strip of tissue and skin is removed and the muscles are tightened. 
  • In the end, the upper lip is raised to a new elevated position and the incision is closed with the help of sutures.
