Lip lifting is also suitable for young patients who have a large gap between the lip and the nose and want to achieve a harmonious shape and fuller lips. The effect of the surgery is long lasting, in many cases even permanent. The operation is performed under local anaesthesia.
It is necessary to stop taking medicines that reduce blood clotting or replace them with others as directed by your doctor.
It is performed under local anesthesia in the supine position. If the client wishes, the procedure can be performed under general anesthesia. The surgeon removes the marked excess skin under the nose in the form of bullhorns and then sutures the subcutaneous tissue and skin. The Steri-Strip fixation patch is applied to the wound.
We recommend strict rest for the first few days after the procedure. The most ideal position is half sitting. The patient should not lean forward, lift heavy objects, or engage in activities that significantly increase blood pressure.
A few nights after the procedure, it is advisable to sleep on the back with the head elevated. If the patient lies on their side, there may be more swelling on that side. Bathing and saunas are prohibited until the stitches are removed. Until the stitches are removed, we recommend a diet that does not force the patient to open his mouth wide.
Painkillers are not necessary in most cases. A medication is administered to eliminate swelling. If the patient has fixation patches on the surgical wound, he keeps them until the stitches are removed. Some doctors recommend applying cream in the morning and evening, which is designed to treat fresh scars and wounds. The addition of cold plates will absorb the swelling more quickly.
Stitches are removed 5-7 days after surgery. The scars are pink at the beginning. They fade, soften and become less visible over time. The client can perform normal daily activities 10-14 days after the procedure. Protection from sunlight for a period of 3-6 months with UV filter creams 50 is very important.
The healing and convalescence process is individual. The healing ability of the individual and the attitude of the patient to follow the postoperative instructions of the physician play an important role.
