What are your lips saying about you? Our lips are a facial feature that many people associate with our personality. Whether or not it’s true, people with thin lips are often thought of as stingy or mean, while people with full lips are generous and good-natured.
Some are born less endowed than others, and some once had the perfect lips that have lost fullness with age. Even worse, time causes unsightly lip lines that scream our age to anyone looking closely enough. If you are tired of your lips aging you, or if you have always dreamed of luscious, sexy, full lips, PermaLip implants may be right for you.
What Is PermaLipTM?
PermaLip is an FDA-approved lip implant. It was developed as a permanent solution for those wanting voluminous, voluptuous lips that look and feel natural.
PermaLIp is made of a soft, solid silicone elastomer (synthetic rubber-like material) that is easily molded because of its elasticity. This elasticity means no unnatural or hard lips, so kissing should be as enjoyable as ever. This specific material was developed for facial implants to prevent tissue ingrowth, a type of scaring that causes restricted or unnatural movement.
About the Procedure
Enhancing your lips with PermaLip is a simple procedure with very minimal risk. It is done with only a local anesthetic, and it takes approximately 15 minutes. A small incision is made at each end of the lip, after which a tunnel is made with a special surgical instrument between the incisions. Then, the implant is slid into place with precision. This process is repeated for the other lip if you choose to do top and bottom lips, and the incisions are closed with absorbable sutures.
Recovery After PermaLip
Following the procedure, you should expect the area to be swollen and slightly tender. Some individuals may experience bruising. You will most likely have some discomfort for a few days, which should be alleviated with pain medication prescribed by your doctor. To help ease the discomfort, you may be instructed to use a topical anesthetic as well.
Typically, the majority of bruising and swelling subsides after the first week. Your lips will be sensitive to light or medium pressure for approximately 2 weeks, and normal activity can be resumed the next day.
Why Choose PermaLip for Lip Enhancement?
The desire for fuller lips is not a recent phenomenon. There are many lip enhancement options available today, including lip glosses or primers to make your lips look fuller. These eventually wear off and do nothing for the lines radiating from your mouth.
There are also injections that are used to fill in the lip lines and enhance fullness. Only temporary solutions, these methods are often painful and involve the use of commercially produced fillers or autologous fat. The results of injections can be unpredictable with respect to how long they last, and they require repetitive treatments that are painful and costly.
There have been other permanent lip solutions on the market, but they often make your lips appear to have an unnatural shape or size. The superior solution to permanently treat thin lips is PermaLip.
Benefits of Lip Augmentation With PermaLip include:
- Permanent results: The implant stays in place unless you want it removed.
- Natural look and feel: PermaLip is made of a soft elastic silicone, feeling just like your regular lip tissue. It does not cause scarring or restriction of your lips that may cause it to look unnatural.
- Simple procedure: The actual procedure is quite simple and takes just 15 minutes.
- Not a one-size-fits-all treatment: PermaLip comes in 9 different sizes to match your personal preference for volume.
Is PermaLip Safe?
Yes! PermaLip has been extensively tested, and it is FDA approved for use in the lips. The outpatient procedure is low risk. Also, it’s designed to be reversible. PermaLip is a solid material, so there is no risk of rupture or leaking.
Who Is a Good Candidate for Lip Implants?
Anyone, man or woman alike, who desires fuller, sexier lips, or anyone who is experiencing thinning of their lips or lip lines due to aging could be a candidate for lip implants.
