Abstract

The modified upper lip lift procedure is a simple evolution of the cutaneous bullhorn subnasal lip lift. The superficial muscular aponeurotic system layer in the lip is described along with the pyriform ligament, both of which play an essential role in lip lifting. This article details an easily reproducible deep-plane technique that can be applied to patients of all ages, ethnicities, and skin types.
