Bullhorn Lip Lifts
Because a subnasal lip lift removes skin it is largely a permanent procedure. Over the first year after the procedure there is about a 20% relapse but most of the result is permanent.
Thank you for your question. A subnasal lip lift is one of the most popular methods of lip lift surgery because of its effectiveness. This procedure is performed by removing a bit of skin tissue from underneath the nose. When the incision is closed, the removed tissue creates a slight lift in the upper lift. I suggest that you move forward and consult with a board certified facial plastic surgeon.
How long lip lifts last
I agree with Dr. Eppley's answer below. After doing over 1000 lip lifts in 23 years, I can count on 2 fingers the number of lip lifts I have come back to re-do for relapse. It's a remarkably reliable and long lasting procedure.
