The levator labii superioris alaeque nasi muscle is, converted from Latin, the “lifter of both the upper lip and of the wing of the nose”. It possesses the lengthiest title of any muscle in an animal. The muscle is connected to the upper frontal process of the maxilla and inserts into the skin of the lateral aspect of the nare and top lip.

In the past called Otto’s muscle, it flares the nares and raises the top lip, making it possible for you to snarl. Elvis Presley is popular for his usage of this expression, making the muscle’s moniker “The Elvis muscle”. A mnemonic to bear in mind its label is, “Little Ladies Snore All Night.” Snore- since it is the labial elevator closest to the nose.

The levator labii superioris alaeque nasi is often described as the “angular head” of the levator labii superioris muscle.
