Lip Enhancement

The revolutionary, PermaLip implant is the answer to safe, permanent (but reversible lip enhancement.

The problem

Temporary solutions for lip enhancement typically involve the use of commercially produced fillers or autologous fat, which can be unpredictable with respect to how long they last, and require repetitive treatments that are painful, inconvenient, and costly to the patient.

Permanent solutions have relied on implants that have not mimicked the natural contours of the lip and may, due to their surface characteristics, promote tissue ingrowth resulting in a restriction of lip movement and an unnatural smile.

The solution

The definitive solution for permanent lip enhancement has finally arrived.  PermaLip has undergone extensive clinical testing. PermaLip is made of a soft, solid silicone elastomer using an injection molding process to produce a naturally contoured implant with a smooth, non-porous surface. This surface minimizes the chance of tissue adherence or ingrowth from the surrounding lip tissue.

PermaLip cannot deflate or rupture, and although permanent, can be easily removed should a patient desire to have it removed or re-sized.

The procedure

The procedure can be performed under local anesthesia and takes approximately fifteen minutes.  After the perioral region and lips have been anesthetized, the PermaLip implant is then passed into the lip, ensuring proper placement through palpation, and the incisions are closed with a single absorbable suture.

The patient will experience one to two weeks of variable swelling after which they can enjoy beautiful, full lips for years to come.
