Lip Implants: An Alternative to Fillers For Long-Lasting Results

How is PermaLip different from other lip augmentation techniques? PermaLip offers a long-lasting alternative to repetitive, costly, and painful filler injections, and overcomes the potential risk of complications of longer lasting injectables or silicone lip implants. PermaLip is contoured to the shape of your lips, has a smooth surface, and can be reversed.

How Do I Know the Lip Implant is the Right Size For Me?

PermaLip is available in a variety of diameters and lengths to accommodate the unique shape and characteristics of your lips, for a fresh, natural look. During the course of a consultation for lip augmentation in Austin, Dr. Leeman will determine what PermaLip size you will need to achieve the most beautiful outcome .

What if I Want to Have Them Removed?

Although PermaLip treatments last a lifetime, the treatment has been designed to be easily reversible should you choose to return to your original lip appearance.

How is Lip Augmentation Performed With the PermaLip Implant?

PermaLip Lip enhancement is relatively simple to perform. Dr. Leeman will administer local anesthesia to the mouth and lips and make a small incision in each corner of the mouth. The PermaLip implant is then passed through a tunnel in the lip and positioned at the center. The process is then repeated for the other lip and the incisions are closed using absorbable sutures. The process typically takes less than 30 minutes and your usual activities can be resumed the following day.

Lip Enhancement FAQ's

Is the lip enhancement procedure painful?

For most patients, any discomfort typically resolves after 24 to 48 hours, although your lips will be sensitive to light or medium pressure for about two weeks.

Is there much bruising involved with lip enhancement?

There is very little bruising in most cases, although this may vary from person to person. Some patients are naturally more prone to bruising than others.

When will I be able to see the results of my lip enhancement?

Your lips will appear larger and swollen in the first few days post-operatively. As the swelling subsides the optimal look will become visible.

I have heard that the risk of infection is quite high in lip implants, is this true?

Infection is a risk with any surgical procedure. Although one might expect the risk of infection to be high in the mouth area, the observed infection rate with PermaLip is extremely low, with an expected rate of infection to be below 1%. You will be prescribed both antibiotics and anti-cold sore medicine to minimize the risk of infection.

How are lip implants comparable to injectables?

The implants used during our Austin lip enhancement procedure do not wear off like temporary injectables. Temporary injectables are associated with repeat treatments every few months, as the body breaks down and sheds the filler over time. Therefore, repetitive, painful, and costly injection procedures are required indefinitely to maintain full, plump lips.

Longer-lasting lip fillers are available. This type of filler does not need to be repeated as regularly but is far more difficult to remove if you are dissatisfied. If an undesirable appearance results, or if you wish to return your lips to their original size, this may be difficult to accomplish. PermaLip has the advantage of being long-lasting, yet easily reversible, for the best of both worlds.

Will my significant other be able to feel Permalip when we kiss?

The vast majority of our patients report that their partners cannot feel the implants while kissing. The extent to which you can feel the implant depends upon whether you had very thin lips before your procedure. If you had thin lips and then had a larger implant placed, it may be possible to feel the change – but it is a pleasant, natural soft sensation.

Can the PermaLip implant leak or rupture?

No. PermaLip is unique in that it is manufactured from a very soft, but solid, silicone.
