The upper lip is often neglected when considering overall facial rejuvenation. With aging, the cutaneous lip elongates, the vermillion loses its volume and inverts, and there is loss of dental show. An upper lip lift can help reverse these changes. In this correspondence, we describe our modified bull's horn technique, which builds on the original description by Cardoso and Sperli,
1.in which only skin and subcutaneous tissue are removed. Our procedure is a simple, reliable, and effective method of improving upper lip shape.
