The cheiloplasty is the surgery performed in aesthetic medicine to increase or decrease the lip. Lip reduction is conducted, in most cases, people who have been made so prior lip augmentation. This lip augmentation has been made permanent or during the time the injected product materials has caused a chronic inflammatory reaction.
Treatments for labia reduction
There are different types of treatments for a reduction cheiloplasty Lip. These are: queilolaserlisis, CO2 laser vaporization and extraction surgery.
The queilolaserlisis is performed by FOX diode laser of 980mm. The laser fiber is inserted through the skin into contact with the material to be removed. Fiber laser transmits heat causing the injected product to be solidified becomes liquid and thus remove possible. This treatment is performed under local anesthesia and lasts between 30 and 45 minutes. After treatment swelling of the lip occurs treaty that can last up to 7 days. The treatment consists of several sessions, these varying between 1 and 3.
CO2 laser vaporization
The CO2 laser aims to achieve controlled vaporization of the lip area where the node is located. The laser causes the tissue to heat and destroy. The heat is supplied to the surrounding tissue is minimal, so as to prevent injury to the area to be treated.
It offers the following advantages:
- It lets try hard to reach areas or small.
- No bleeding occurs
- No precise suture
Treatment CO2 laser vaporization is done in several sessions, joining the usual life the same day of the session. This treatment takes longer to heal than surgery and for 5 or 7 days should apply a topical cream in the area to aid in the healing process.
The surgical procedure involves making an incision elliptical cross along the lip, between the side corners in the mucosa of the inside edge. After incision, excess labial mucosa and the product was extracted injected. Then the edges are closed with an absorbable suture. The scar is hardly visible because as it stands at the inner edge of the lip mucosa is very difficult to see.
The lip reduction surgery is an outpatient procedure and her local anesthesia is used.
Surgery may involve some complications such as:
- Decreased mobility
- Abnormal scars.
In conclusion, the secondary cheiloplasty is a surgery that aims to normalize the ratios changed by injecting fillers lips.
