What is a bullhorn lift?
With age, the elasticity of the skin decreases. Muscle as well as bones are broken down. As a result, the upper lip red becomes thinner and the upper lip white becomes longer. The Bullhorn Lift is a technique of lip lift (in technical language Cheiloplasty). The skin under the nose is tightened and the distance between the nose and mouth is shortened. Since the curved shape of the removed skin is reminiscent of the shape of bull horns, the technique of lip correction is colloquially called Bullhorn Lift. The youthful proportion of the mouth area is restored. The upper lip red becomes fuller and naturally emphasizes the sensual radiance. The scar is very inconspicuous in the skin fold below the nose. The results of the lip lift are permanent.
What is the procedure for lip lift surgery?
The procedure is performed under local anesthesia. The operation takes about thirty minutes. An overnight stay at the clinic is not necessary. For more comfort, a numbing cream is applied thirty to sixty minutes beforehand. The very thin needle of the anaesthetic syringe is hardly noticed afterwards. The excess skin and the incision line are marked with a fine marker. To prevent the formation of bruises, the injected anaesthetic contains adrenaline. The effect of the anesthetic lasts for about two hours. The optical magnification of magnifying glasses enables a particularly gentle operation. The wound is closed with the finest sutures and treated with staple plasters. After the procedure you will be given a detailed report. It contains recommendations on how to behave and a telephone number where you can reach your surgeon at any time. Before you leave the clinic, examination appointments will be made to follow the healing process.
What can you expect after surgery?
Avoid bending over and cool the lip after the anesthetic wears off. This will prevent swelling in the first three days after treatment. If possible, sleep with your upper body slightly elevated during the first night. Avoid physical exertion. Abstain from nicotine and alcohol consumption for at least five days. During the first three days, we recommend that you avoid excessive mouth movements (for example, laughing, chewing, talking). The stitches are usually removed after 8 days. Direct sunlight can adversely affect scar healing. Massaging the scar from the second week onwards ensures a fine inconspicuous scar.
Bullhorn lift before after pictures
The Heilmittelwerbegesetz § 11 restricts the pictorial representation of cosmetic surgery in Germany. The state of health and lifestyle habits influence the healing process and the risks after surgery. A treatment plan and a treatment outcome are not transferable to every person. Before and after pictures are helpful in the context of the consultation and explanatory discussion in order to show the possibilities of the respective treatment procedure. In scientific publications, images are provided with a legend and published in the context of a scientific article. The before and after photos are identical in terms of size, position and lighting. Information about age, state of health and surgical technique enables the specialist to classify the surgical result precisely. By banning before-and-after pictures in public, the legislator wants to avoid showing pictures without background information.
