Will a Bullhorn Lip Lift Make my Lip Feel Heavier or Affect my Speech?

I really had wanted a lip reduction but had alloderm years ago so they can't do that. Recommended was a bullhorn lift which may help as I do have a very long nose to lip area. My speech is already affected as my lip has decreased sensation and does get caught on my teeth as it hangs down. Unfortunately, I do not have a pic yet on my new computer to send. Hopefully, the above will help someone answer.
Effect of Upper Lip Lift on Speech
A lip lift should not make your lip feel heavier. If your speech is impaired because the upper lip gets caught in your teeth, an upper lip lift should improve your situation. If your speech is impaired because of diminished lip sensation, the lip lift should neither improve nor further harm speech, because the effect of an upper lip lift on sensation is neutral.
