Permanent lip implants – beautiful lips every time, any day!
If you have been having lip enhancement by injections then you will know the worries about remembering when your next treatment is due, if you will get exactly the same result as the last time and other concerns. Lip implants offer a permanent solution to achieve a permanent pout; they are made from high grade medical silicone which does not break down unlike cosmetic dermal fillers.
Advantages of lip implants
This is a one-off treatment which means you do not need to keep having regular sessions as with lip fillers.
An implant is more cost effective in the long term when compared with lip enhancement injections.
The greatest advantage of lip implant is that it is a permanent yet reversible form of lip augmentation.
How is it done?
The first step is to determine the correct length and size of implant for you. Permanent lip augmentation surgery is a minimally invasive procedure that is done under local anaesthetic and takes just about an hour. After numbing the lips with a dental block, discreet incisions are made in the corners of the mouth and the implants are threaded through these incisions. Sutures are used to close the discreet incisions.
You may choose to do upper lip augmentation only or both depending on your aspirations.
What can I do or not do after the procedure?
As with most lip treatments there will be some swelling which takes a few days to subside. Sutures are usually removed about 4 days after surgery. Recovery is usually quick with downtime limited to just a few days.
Will I my lips look or feel different?
Apart from achieving your desired fuller lips, they will not change in any other way.
Just like breast implants, the silicone is very soft and moulds to the shape of your lips. You will continue to have full movement of your lips and the feeling in the lips should be as normal. Partners of clients also say that they cannot feel the implant.
What if I change my mind afterwards?
Permanent lip implants do not deflate or disperse so they can be easily removed at any time should you decide you don’t want them anymore.
