Reasons to consider permanent lip augmentation

Why a permanent lip augmentation transform your appearance

If you are unhappy with your lips you may find a permanent lip augmentation could help to improve the size of them. They are popular with women who are looking for hassle-free aesthetic improvements.

Lip enhancement with fillers is usually not permanent but can last for up to twelve months. For a more permanent filling, a soft silicone strip can be inserted into the lips.

Unlike dermal fillers, which only offer short term solutions, a permanent lip augmentation will give you long lasting lip volume. Here are some reasons why you may consider this type of procedure.

Improved lip volume

Volume is the key to beautiful lips. When we think of modern-day beautiful women celebrities such as Angelina Jolie and Kylie Jenner are firm favourites with many people seeking lip augmentation.

With a permanent lip augmentation, using silicone lip implants such as PermaLip, you can enjoy volumised lips without need repeat treatments. The same cannot be said with dermal fillers.

Larger lips

As well as improving lip volume, PermaLip can give patients larger lips generally. The projection of the lips can be altered to give an overall larger appearance. This is popular with women who have naturally thin top lips.

Versatility

One benefit to undergoing this type of permanent lip augmentation is the versatility. PermalLip implants can be used in both the lower and upper lips, and in many cases both lips.

Different sizes

Because there are various sizes of silicone lip implant available there is option to go bigger if needed at a later point. It’s advised to start smaller and work your way up to larger implants if you like the volumised appearance.

They can be removed

If for any reason you don’t like how permanent lip augmentation change the shape or size of your lips, they can be removed. This can happen as soon after or late on as necessary.

What are PermaLip silicone lip implants?

PermaLip soft-shell silicone implants. Because of the way they are made they will not rupture or leak, and they don’t grow into the surrounding tissue. Each implant has a smooth surface, which helps to reduce the development of scar tissue.

Each PermaLip implant is shaped to suit the natural shape on the lip. Before the insertion procedure a full consultation is given and the doctor numbs the mouth and lips with local anaesthetic.

Two small incisions are made in the corners of the mouth before the silicone lip implant is then inserted and adjusted. The process is repeated for the other lip (if requested) before the incisions are closed using dissolvable stitches.

The procedure takes approximately 20-30 minutes, depending on the case. Every patient is treated individually, and a bespoke procedure should be given to all patients.
