A new approach to permanent lip implants

Permanent lip implants for patients over 45

You could be forgiven for thinking at permanent lip implants are a type of cosmetic treatment only pursued by younger patients, but in recent years we have seen an increase in the number of women aged 45 and above who are looking to improve the volume of their lips as they age.

It’s widely perceived in the media that the lip augmentation treatments are only being undertaken by women of a certain age; usually linked to social media or specific TV shows that glamorise a certain look. However, in the last five years clinics across the UK have seen a rise in women in their 40s seeking not only nonsurgical anti-ageing treatments but also, more specifically, lip augmentation treatments, such as permanent lip implants.

Permanent lip implants are designed to add volume and improve the size of the upper and or lower lip. When you consider that as we age the lips lose volume especially, we start to see a reduction in natural shape/size. For that reason alone it is not surprising that women in their 40s are seeking a way to permanently improve this concern.

Permanent lip implants such as PermaLip offer a reliable and safe method of lip augmentation, and the procedure to insert these implants is quick and relatively straightforward. There is no hospital stay required, and as a local anaesthetic is used there is no pain or discomfort associated with this form of lip augmentation.

PermaLip implants specifically designed to work in harmony with the natural shape of the lips. Unlike dermal fillers that can give an uneven and unnatural result, permanent lip implants are designed to work alongside the natural aesthetic of the lip and the mouth. Via incisions at the corners of the mouth, the silicone lip implants are placed under the skin, before the small incisions are closed and the lips allowed to heal.

Unlike dermal filler lip augmentation treatments, patients do not need to undergo further treatments at extra cost after 18 months. In fact these implants are classed as permanent and therefore should last for a long time before needing replacements if at all. Over a longer period of time, when you consider how much it costs to undergo repeat lip augmentation treatments using dermal fillers, silicone permanent implants represent an economic cosmetic solutions to lips that lack natural volume or have lost volume due to the ageing process.
