Before a patient chooses to undergo any cosmetic procedure, they need to take time to learn about the procedure and look at the pros and cons. This is something that is especially true when it comes to cosmetic procedures that are surgical in nature or will last a very long time. Fortunately, most patients have learned that a treatment like Permalip® can give them the permanently fuller lips they want.
Permalip® has been approved by the FDA as a great option for patients who are no longer satisfied with their results from lip injections. The implants are made of a soft, solid silicone material and are inserted under the lips. This is not an injection like a fat transfer or dermal filler. It is a minimally invasive procedure that involves carefully inserting the implant just under the skin.
Permalip® implants are designed to be flexible and help those with a variety of different needs. For this reason, they are available in different sizes and shapes. The idea is to provide more volume or enhance the shape of your lips in a way that looks seamlessly natural. They are great for those with naturally thin lips or who have lips that are starting to lose volume with age.
The process only takes about 30 minutes and is performed right here in our office. You do not have to worry about feeling extreme discomfort during the process. A local anesthesia is used, so you do not have to worry about any sensations you may feel during the process.
Most of our patients are able to go about their daily activities after the procedure is finished. However, many choose to take a couple of days off from work to let themselves completely relax. Most people see that their swelling and bruising goes down after about a week. No visible scars will be left behind. Your lips will look smooth and natural.
If you have tried lip injections but are ready to try something with more permanent results, Permalip® may be the right option for you. This is a safe procedure that provides amazing benefits. We invite you to schedule a consultation with us at Transformations Plastic Surgery. You will be able to meet with our surgeon to discuss the pros and cons of this treatment and decide if it is right for you.
