One of the most popular cosmetic treatments of the here and now is undoubtedly the lip augmentation. It's consistently covered in lifestyle and beauty magazines, and lip augmentation treatments have continued to rise in popularity over the last five years.
With female celebrities seemingly all flocking to cosmetic clinics across the UK in search of the perfect pout, it stands to reason that lip augmentation has become the go-to cosmetic treatment for women of all ages.
However, with great power comes great responsibility, and as lip augmentation continues to be the beauty choice 'de jour' we are starting to see what happens when injectable lip augmentations don't go to plan.
Unlike implants, such as PermaLip, fillers can be problematic and cause reactions in some patients. There is also much publicity surrounding the misuse of lip fillers, which can leave patients looking unnatural and unhappy.
For many potential patients, the idea of undergoing multiple injectable treatments using fillers in order to maintain lips to be proud of is becoming less and less attractive, and so the rise in permanent lip augmentation is now proudly coming to the forefront of the British aesthetics industry.
For those who do not wish to undergo risky injectable lip fillers, or for patients who wish to have a permanent long-term solution, the PermaLip implants could provide the perfect result.
PermaLip is a silicone implant which has been approved for the use in permanent augmentation procedures. The implant, which comes in a variety of shapes and sizes, is inserted into the lips virus more incision made by a cosmetic doctor or plastic surgeon.
Whilst a minor procedure it is still classed as a medical treatment and therefore should only be undertaken by those trained in this advanced technique.
Once placed under the tissue of the lips, the PermaLip implant is long lasting, unless the patient wishes to have it removed or replaced with a different shape or size. The volume of the lips can be improved or the shape of the lip may be altered using these implants, and both the top and bottom lip can be augmented using the silicone implants if the patient wishes.
This represents a breakthrough in lip augmentation treatments as patients no longer have to revisit the clinic over and over again for top up treatment in order to maintain the result.
As with any minor surgical procedure, there are always risks and complications associated with such a treatment, however the risks are very slight and complications low thanks to the tiny incision required. PermaLip implants have been widely tested and is recognised as a safe and strong product which is ideal for reshaping the lips and improving the volume.
PermaLip implants are available in clinics across the U.K. and can be purchased by practitioners from SurgiSol.
