The Buffalo | Gull Wing Lip Lift can be considered for lip augmentation whenever the distance from the upper lip and bottom of the nose is larger than the colored part of the eye. (Read more about Dr. Philip Young’s Theory on Facial Beauty).

One of the tell tale signs of aging is the lengthening of the upper lip. With volume loss around the mouth and in the perioral | lip structures, the lip lengthens. Plumping the lip up with fillers | fat injections and the YoungVitalizer are options to rejuvenate the lip by adding volume and creating some type of roll to evert the lips. This eversion and rolling will increase the amount of red lip seen. This eversion of the lip can also shorten the distance from the bottom of the nose to the top of the lip, but sometimes this can't shorten this distance enough and this is where the lip lift can come in to play. Sometimes the eversion can’t evert the lips enough. This is when we start considering the VY advancement procedure for lip augmentation.

“I just wanted to leave a note and say that my procedure with Dr. Young approximately 6 years ago took years off my face. He did an excellent job and I am still enjoying the results. It was very much worth the downtime. I look exactly like myself, just younger. Thanks, again!”


— C.J., 40’s caucasian female from North Lynnwood, WA

“He gave me my confidence back that I thought I would never get back. I can now look in the mirror and actually love what I see and not have to deal with pitted scars in my face. If you or anyone you know who thinks they have to just live with these scars, don't!”


— Ator A., 20’s Eastern Indian from Ontario, Canada

“My procedure went great and I left the office with no concerns and all of my questions answered. I have never felt so good about myself and my appearance. I have you to thank for that Dr. Young. My new nose is perfect, I cannot thank you enough for this new look on life.”


— Nicole R., Fabulous Rhinoplasty
