Small or thin lips - or lips which appear aged and wrinkled - as we age, lips can lose volume, projection and color as well as become thinner
How Lip Augmentation Fixes the Problem:
Whether your choice is non-permanent or permanent lip augmentation, these treatments will enhance the shape, size and definition of your lips, through the use of an injectible or lip implant.
Most patients exploring lip enhancement are those with normal lip appearance and simply desire to enhance their existing lip, or patients who, as a result of aging, have a natural loss of lip volume and are beginning to develop wrinkles in and around their lips - typically patients past the age of thirty begin to develop wrinkles in and around their lips along with a loss of fullness.
There are basically two (2) types of augmentation for lips:
Non-Permanent (injectible): Restylane®, JUVEDERM®, Perlane®
Permanent Implants: Perma Facial Implant™
What to Expect:
Non-Permanent Lip Augmentation: A dermal filler or related material is injected into the lips. Local anesthesia is generally used by Dr. Roberts before lip injections, so that the procedure is painless. Recovery time is minimal and some may experience slight and temporary redness, swelling or tenderness.
Permanent Lip Implant: Perma Facial Implant™ is a safe, definitive solution for permanent soft tissue enhancement of the lips. Perma Facial Implant™ is a patented, FDA approved device and has undergone extensive clinical testing to ensure its safety and efficacy. Perma Facial Implant™ is made of a soft, solid silicone elastomer using an injection molding process to produce a naturally contoured implant with a smooth, non-porous surface that cannot rupture or deflate. The implant is available in a variety of sizes for results that range from mild enhancement, to restore minor losses of lip volume, to full enhancement for a voluptuous, "sexy" look.
The lip augmentation procedure using a Perma Facial Implant™ implant can be performed under local anesthesia in our cosmetic surgery center. Two small incisions are made in the corners of the mouth. The implant is inserted through the incision, positioned and centered within a tunnel in the lip. Absorbable sutures are used in closing the incisions. The entire process can take less than 30 minutes and normal activity may be resumed the following day.
Although classified as a permanent implant, Perma Facial Implant™ is designed to be easily reversible should you choose to remove the implant. The procedure for removal of the permanent lip implant typically takes less than ten minutes.
What You Will Notice:
If your choice is a permanent lip implant the effects of the implant will be immediately noticeable providing you fuller, plumper, more youthful lips for years to come. Should you select a non-permanent injectible, the results will be noticeable immediately and will continue to improve over a period of time and will last up to one year.
A lip enhancement procedure can add suppleness to the lips in order to enhance your overall appearance. You may enjoy a sexier attitude with your full, more luscious lips.
