Increase visibility of upper lip for a full and well-defined lips.
Luscious and balanced lips are a thing of beauty. With the cultural focus on lips within the last decade to create sexy and enhanced facial features, lip lift is the best in lip enhancement without overfilling the lips. The lip lift is one long-term solution to enhance the upper lip. Rather than increasing the volume of the lips, the lip lift increases the visible space of the upper lip by shortening the philtrum, or the space between the nose and the top lip. This can often make the lips look fuller and more pronounced by revealing more vermillion, or the pink part of the lips. With vast knowledge of facial plastic procedures and using his modified “Bull Horn” technique, Dr. Kevin Sadati offers a natural, and lifted look to create a youthful and fuller upper lip.
There are a few different types of lip lift that can be used to create a fuller, more flattering look to the lips. Dr. Sadati’s preferred technique is the endonasal lip lift also known as modified bull-horn, which comes with benefits like less visible scarring, a more pronounced pout and appearance to the upper lip, and a lesser chance of visible tension. It requires a small incision underneath the nose so that a small area of skin can be reattached further inside the nose to gently pull the upper lip upwards. Finally, the incisions are closed and made ready for recovery.
You’ll receive instructions to follow for your lip lift recovery, including specific steps for a diet that avoids excessive chewing. You can expect minimal discomfort the first night of surgery that can be managed with Tylenol. You’ll need to keep yourself elevated while sleeping in order to avoid excess swelling and bruising and should use ice packs to manage discomfort. You can expect about one week of swelling and it can take up to one month before your final results settle in. After an endonasal lip lift, the result is a more pronounced, fuller look to the lips and a shortened distance between the upper lip and nose for a more balanced look to the profile.
Full, luscious lips are a timeless sign of beauty, but things like genetics and aging can get in the way of your cosmetic goals.

Scarring is a risk with any surgery, but the endonasal lip lift is one of the best techniques available for reducing visible scarring when it comes to your results. Dr. Sadati can give you the best idea of what to expect from your procedure as well as any options available for reducing visible scarring with cosmetic treatments.
A lip lift is different from fillers because it makes the lips appear fuller and bigger by exposing more of the vermillion. Fillers, on the other hand, can add volume to the lips themselves. The best way to determine which option is best for you is through a consultation with Dr. Sadati. In many cases, patients can benefit from both options together.
