Preparation for cheiloplasty and its implementation

All manipulations are performed on an outpatient basis, and after the procedure the patient can go home. Cheiloplasty is a set of procedures designed to eliminate the disadvantages of the shape or volume. It includes several methodologies, each of which is aimed at addressing specific problems.

Bulhorn is the removing of excess fabric from the area between the nose and a red border. Fabric redundancy can be either congenital or may be acquired with age. As a result, the red border is being folded and is being completely hidden under excess of skin often. The operation is performed in several stages. First markings are being applied and a portion that is subject to resection is being defined. After that it is removed and the inner edge of the wound is tightening by the suture. This will open the smile line, the red border rises and leans forward. The seam is located under the nose lower edge and is completely invisible after healing. The wounds are sutured with bioresorbable sutures that do not require removal.

Vermillion elevation. It is impossible to achieve the desired lips volume by introducing fillers due to the poor skin areas. In this case this procedure is used. It lies in the excision of excess tissues on the top and bottom and lifting of the red border; the lips may be slightly turned out as well. Fixing is performed by the inner seam.

V-Y Plasty aims to increase the volume by transposition of the internal tissues outwardly. The incision in the shape of V is made from inside on the mucous membrane, then the edges of the incision are sutured the shape of Y. As a result, the tissue is lifted, thus compensating the volume.

Reviews from our patients about this service

Добрый день! 15 июня сделала в Вашей клинике операцию булхорн. Обещала написать, когда сойдёт отёк:) Прошло уже две недели, так что решила отчитаться: отёк сошёл, корочки отпали, только ещё кое-где немножко торчат ниточки. Продолжаю обрабатывать спиртом. Результатом я довольна: губа приподнялась, но выглядит всё очень естественно:) Ещё раз большущее спасибо Никите Ильичу за прекрасную работу, а также всем сотрудникам Вашей клиники!:)

Здравствуйте, Очень благодарна вам за грудь, размер стал больше, мягкая, не болит вообще. Нос я массирую, вроде немного тоньше стал, губы заживают. Спасибо вам огромное, я очень довольна результатом.
