Lip Augmentation With PermaLip™ Implants
Plump, alluring lips are considered desirable for both men and women. PermaLip silicone lip implants are now available in the Naples-Fort Myers area as a lasting alternative to lip augmentation injections. Dr. Kent V. Hasen offers a variety of sizes of the PermaLip implants, which can be removed or replaced at any time. Dr. Hasen’s attention to detail is critical when shaping delicate areas such as the lips.
What Is the Lip Implant Procedure?
Dr. Hasen inserts the implants through tiny incisions made in each corner of the mouth. He gently pushes the PermaLip implants through a tunnel in the lip and positions them. The outpatient procedure using a local anesthetic usually requires no more than 30 minutes.
What Are the Advantages of PermaLip?
- Lip implants are designed to be a an enduring lip augmentation alternative to fillers such as Restylane-L® or JUVÉDERM® XC.
- Silicone implants can be removed at any time.
- Contoured PermaLip implants are available in various sizes.
Who Is a Good Candidate for PermaLip Implants?
Men and women with naturally thin lips or whose lips have lost volume as they age can benefit from the soft but solid silicone implants. Many patients who get lip implants have tried dermal fillers or fat grafting and have liked their results, but they are interested in a lasting solution. Dr. Hasen helps patients select the implant size and shape that best suits them by enhancing the lips in a natural-looking way.
What Can I Expect After My Procedure?
Expect swelling to be somewhat pronounced in the first few days after the surgery. Bruising varies from person to person, but Dr. Hasen’s postoperative instructions will include information about minimizing both swelling and bruising. You will soon begin noticing the augmented appearance of your lips. Because implants are defined shapes and sizes, the results are more predictable than augmentation with injectable fillers.
