With the help of Bluewater Plastic Surgery, there are various ways to enhance the appearance of your lips. Some popular treatments, such as injections, may reduce fine lines and wrinkles and add volume to your lips. Although the recovery time is much shorter than the time for permanent lip enhancement procedures, the hyaluronic acid facial fillers (Juvéderm, Belotero, and Volbella) must be readministered every 6 to 12 months.
PERMANENT LIP ENHANCEMENT – PERMALIP™ DESTIN
In addition to using injections to augment the lip, our board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Clark, uses PermaLip for those who prefer permanent lip augmentation. PermaLip feels soft and looks very natural, especially with our proven techniques.
Dr. Clark of Bluewater Plastic Surgery is dually trained as an oral and maxillofacial surgeon with extensive lip surgery experience. If you want to achieve fuller, bigger lips without the need for repeated injections, request a consultation with Dr. Clark today!
HOW IS THE PERMALIP PROCEDURE PERFORMED?
PermaLip is a minimally invasive procedure that can be performed in the office using Dental Block anesthesia, which offers a quicker lip augmentation recovery for our patients. During the permanent lip enhancement, a pair of small incisions hidden within the mouth will be used to place and position the lip implant. In most cases, absorbable sutures will be used for patient comfort and convenience.
“I always strive to achieve results that enhance each person’s individuality and uniqueness. I aim for a sense of personal harmony, culminating in patients who still look themselves – only better!”
– Dr. Clark, MD, DMD
PERMALIP IMPLANT OPTIONS
With PermaLip implants, you control the volume – implants are available in various sizes. During your lip augmentation consultation with Dr. Clark, the proper size and length of the lip implants to meet your goals will be determined. Most of our patients choose to enhance both the lower and upper lip, but in some cases, patients opt for enhancing the volume of only one of the two. You tell us what your desires are, and we’ll help you achieve your goals! Schedule your permanent lip enhancement consultation today.
WHAT IS THE PERMALIP IMPLANT?
PermaLip is a soft silicone lip implant with a natural shape and appearance. The permanent lip implant is designed to be placed along the entire lip length through small incisions inside the mouth. The PermaLip implant is specially contoured to match the natural appearance of the lips, and tapers to each edge, adding volume in all the right places.
WHO IS A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR PERMALIP
Most PermaLip patients have prior lip enhancement experience with a dermal filler like Juvéderm. Once accustomed to the lip augmentation process, patients often decide to try a more permanent filler solution, such as PermaLip. While patients thoroughly enjoy the lip injection results, repeating the treatment every 6-12 months to sustain the results doesn’t work for everyone. PermaLip allows these patients to achieve similar volume-enhancing results on a long-term basis.
