What to Expect
Perma Facial Implants™ are a revolutionary new type of implant that helps lip augmentation patients in a way injectable fillers can’t: by offering a permanent way to enjoy increased lip volume. Perma Facial Implants™ are made of soft, solid silicone, meaning that these implants cannot rupture, deflate or degrade. The implants are available in a range of diameters and lengths so that each of our patients gets a customized result.
While it is called a “permanent” implant and is durable enough to last a lifetime, these implants are also designed to be easily removed. Therefore, you can increase or decrease the size of your augmentation, or return to your original lip appearance.
Because each person’s goals for lip augmentation are different, your surgery will be tailored to your specific characteristics and desires. We will discuss your cosmetic goals and specific procedural options during an initial consultation. An implant can be placed in one lip or used to augment both lips.
Some patient may prefer to “try out” the idea of lip augmentation first with the help of dermal fillers. Dermal fillers can give your lips a more sensuous look that lasts 6-12 months, giving you more time to decide whether the look of lip enhancement is right for you before committing to lip implants.
Preparing for Your Lip Implants
Perma Facial Implants™ are placed during a routine procedure performed under local anesthetic. First, two small incisions are made at the corners of the mouth for each lip to be enhanced. Then, the implant is inserted through one side, and is positioned and centered before the incisions are closed with absorbable sutures. The procedure usually takes 30 minutes or less, with patients needing about 3 to 5 days away from their usual activities to rest and recover.
Recovery & Results
Swelling and tenderness of the lips is common for a short time after the procedure. Some patients also see light bruising. These issues should resolve themselves within a week after the procedure. At about the same time, you should be able to see the final results of your fuller and more beautiful lips.
