What are PermaLipPermanent Lip Implants?
PermaLip implants are made of soft silicon in multiple sizes. Similar to a tube with tapered ends, these soft implants are placed along the entire length of the top or bottom lip to enhance the size and shape of the lips. While most patients choose both top and bottom lip implants, some prefer either the top or bottom only.
Who is a Good Candidatefor PermaLip Implants?
If you are self-conscious about thin or small lips, or your lips have begun to wrinkle and shrink with age, PermaLip lip implants might be the answer for you. Patients who are tired of the upkeep associated with fillers and are looking for a long-lasting solution are good candidates for PermaLip implants.
What Should I Expectfrom PermaLip Surgery?
For most patients, PermaLip implant surgery can be performed with just local anesthesia, completed in under an hour. After the local anesthesia is administered, Dr. Siegel will make small hidden incisions along the inner corner of the mouth.
Using a special surgical tool, the implant is drawn into the lip and securely positioned. Most patients have both the top and bottom lip implants placed at the same time. Once both are in place, the incisions are closed by Dr. Siegel with sutures that will dissolve on their own in several days.
