Bullhorn Lip Lift Saarland

What is a bullhorn lift? Find out more about the small procedure with a big impact

Skin elasticity decreases with increasing age. Muscles and 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 lip lift technique (technically known as cheiloplasty). This tightens the skin below the nose and shortens the distance between the nose and mouth. As the curved shape of the removed skin is reminiscent of the shape of bull horns, the lip correction technique is colloquially known as a bullhorn lift. The youthful proportion of the mouth area is restored. The upper lip red becomes fuller and emphasizes the sensual radiance in a natural way. The scar is very inconspicuous in the skin fold below the nose. The results of the lip lift are permanent.

Surgery for a lip lift

How does a lip lift operation work?

The procedure is performed under local anesthesia. The operation takes about thirty minutes. An overnight stay in the clinic is not necessary. For your greater comfort, an anesthetic cream is applied thirty to sixty minutes beforehand. The very thin needle of the anesthetic syringe is hardly noticeable afterwards. The excess skin and the incision are marked with a fine marker. To prevent the formation of bruising, the injected anesthetic contains adrenaline. The effect of the anesthetic lasts for about two hours. The optical magnification of loupe glasses enables particularly gentle surgery. The wound is closed with the finest stitches and treated with staple plasters. You will receive a detailed report after the procedure. It contains recommendations on what to do and a telephone number where you can reach your surgeon at any time. Before you leave the clinic, examination appointments will be made to monitor the healing process.

Avoid bending over and cool the lip after the anesthetic has worn 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. Avoid nicotine and alcohol for at least five days. During the first three days, we recommend that you avoid excessive mouth movements (e.g. laughing, chewing, talking). The stitches are usually removed after 8 days. Direct sunlight can have a detrimental effect on scar healing. Massaging the scar from the second week onwards ensures a fine, inconspicuous scar.

Our before and after pictures of Bullhorn-Lift

Section 11 of the Therapeutic Products Advertising Act restricts the pictorial representation of cosmetic surgery in Germany. The state of health and lifestyle habits influence the healing process and the risks after an operation. A treatment plan and a treatment result are not transferable to every person. Before and after pictures are helpful during the consultation and information session 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 the patient’s age, state of health and surgical technique enables the specialist to precisely classify the results of the operation. By banning before-and-after images in public, the legislator wants to prevent images from being shown without background information.

Dr. Adelana Santos Stahl has a unique international perspective with a female view of plastic surgery. Your individual and detailed approach is the key to the beautiful and natural results. Having trained in Brazil, one of the largest and best-known countries for aesthetic and reconstructive plastic surgery, she understands her patients’ desire to look and feel their best.

She completed her medical studies and training as a specialist in plastic and aesthetic surgery in Brazil. In 2009, she also successfully passed the German equivalence examinations for the state medical examination.

Two years later, in 2011, she received the German and in 2012 the EU specialist certification (EBOPRAS) for plastic surgery. From 2009 to 2013, she deepened her knowledge of aesthetic and reconstructive facial surgery with world-renowned representatives of plastic surgery such as Professor Gubisch at the Marienhospital and Madame Firmin in Paris.

A VDÄPC Fellowship (continuing scholarship for graduate students) in Switzerland, France and the USA has further enriched her professional experience. Dr. Santos Stahl is active in various renowned professional associations. In addition to the DGPRÄC and DGBT, she is also a member of the Brazilian Society of Plastic Surgery – SBCP.

She is also the author of several scientific articles and, together with her husband, is dedicated to research and clinical studies in the field of plastic surgery.

She has been based in Saarbrücken since 2019.
