Permanent lip augmentation can be achieved in various ways. Lip augmentation can be performed with lip fillers like Restylane or Juvederm. Volbella has recently gained attention as a long lasting lip filler. However, all lip fillers will dissipate at about 6 months after injection. In order to achieve a lasting lip augmentation, permanent lip implants are necessary.
Permanent Lip Implant
The longest lasting lip implants are made of silicone. Lip implants like the PermaLip can be customized for any patient. The Permalip offers a natural augmentation of the lip without visible scars. The PermaLip can be performed with Rhinoplasty Surgery or other Facial Plastic Surgery Procedures like Facelift Surgery or Brow Lift Surgery.
How much do Lip Implants Cost?
The PermaLip Lip Implant varies between $3200 to $5000 depending on patient preference to have the upper or lower lip implanted or both lips done at the same time. The lip implant is customized to each patient.
What is the difference between a Lip Lift and a PermaLip Implant?
The lip lift operation is performed by making a small incision under the nose. It is hidden in a shadow line. Lip lift surgery does not require an implant. A PermaLip Implant is a silicone implant which is placed through an incision in the corner of the lip. Both operations improve the volume of the upper lip. However, only a PermaLip can improve the volume of the lower lip.
