Bullhorn Lip Lift After Rhinoplasty?

I had an open Rhinoplasty a little over a year ago, and now I would like to get an upper lip lift (bullhorn). I don't want them to remove the skin under the nose because of the Rhinoplasty, so is it possible to remove the skin from between the nose and upper lip?

The skin under the nose is precisely what gets removed.

If done properly there is no, I repeat no distortion of the nose.

Check out the video to see indications for the procedure and iff you are a candidate.

Lip lift following rhinoplasty


The bullhorn lift is most likely your best option. A scar in the middle of the lip or at the border of the red lip ("gull wing lip lift") is more likely to leave a visible scar.
