Lip Lift Surgery: Bullhorn Lip Lift

Are you curious to learn more about the differences between a surgical lip lift and other cosmetic lip- shaping procedures, such as lip filler injections?  Find out whether you’re better off with a lip lift surgery vs lip filler injections by phoning our office to ask for a confidential consultation with facial rejuvenation expert, Dr Richard Sackelariou, based in Melbourne.

Lip Lift Surgery vs Lip Augmentation using Dermal Filler/Lip Filler Injections

There are several lip enhancement options to improve your facial appearance.

The most frequently requested lip augmentation options in our Melbourne locations include:

  • Lip Filler Injections (Lip Augmentation using Dermal Fillers)
    • Lower lip injections for fullness or shaping of the lip
    • Upper lip injections for fullness, cupid bow enhancements or shaping of the lip
  • Lip Lift Surgery (the bullhorn lip lift)
    • Upper lip lift surgery may suit individuals who have an elongated philtrum (the area between the nose and the upper lip) that leaves their face looking aged or ‘long’
    • May help remedy a scenario where the philtrum hides the upper teeth, which leaves the individual with a smile that shows only the lower teeth and which looks imbalanced
