What is PermaLip?
PermaLip ™ is a silicone implant brand to increase the volume of the lips. The brand is marketed by the company SurgiSil. PermaLip is actually a silicone implant. This prosthesis is made of soft and strong elastomer silicone, with a smooth, non-porous surface. It provides a long-lasting result for long, fleshy, luscious lips while respecting the natural contour of the mouth.
Lipoplasty with this type of implant is an ideal solution for permanent lip augmentation or to compensate for thin or pinched lips.
The implant can be placed on the upper or lower lip, or both.

Advantages and Disadvantages of PermaLip Implants
Benefits of PermaLip
PermaLip implants have several advantages over other lip enhancement techniques.
Indeed, unlike injections of hyaluronic acid that must be renewed periodically, Permalips have an unlimited lifespan. These can also be replaced or removed at any time.
In addition, PermaLip prostheses are biocompatible. Thus, the risk of developing an allergic reaction to the product is extremely rare. Which is not always the case, concerning lip fillers.
Finally, PermaLip is reliable and gives excellent results. Implants have existed since the 2000s and have been developed in the United States. Since then, this technique of lip augmentation has largely proved its worth.

PermaLip helps to increase the volume of the lips, makes the lips more fleshy and embellishes the smile. Thus, PermaLips are ideal for those who:
- have thin lips and would like to increase the size of your lips
- would like to increase the size of one lip compared to the other
- have a gum smile and the upper lip disappears when they smile
- would like to harmonize the rest of the face with their mouths
Since implants are biocompatible, the risks of allergy or rejection are extremely rare. However, PermaLip is to be avoided if you smoke. In this case, it will stop smoking at least two weeks before surgery.
Finally, PermaLip is suitable for both women and men and there is no age limit for this type of intervention.
Preparation for Lip Augmentation with PermaLip
Smokers must quit smoking two weeks before the procedure. The smoke slows down the healing process and significantly increases the risk of operative complications. In addition, it will also abstain from smoking after the intervention to prevent the implant from moving in the post-operative period.
In addition, two weeks before the lip augmentation by implants, it will stop taking drugs containing aspirin and dietary supplements or vitamins increasing bleeding.

Surgery is performed on an outpatient basis. You can leave the clinic after the procedure.
Recovery after Permalip
In the postoperative period, the patient may apply cold compresses or ice to limit swelling.
Then, at the level of the medication, anti-pain and antibiotics will be prescribed.
As bruising, swelling and edema are important during the first 3 days, a social-professional eviction of at least a week is necessary after the procedure.
To avoid the risk of displacement of the implant, it will be necessary to stop smoking during the first 3 weeks.
Finally, the dissolvable stitches will fall off after 5 days.
The results of PermaLip are appreciable as soon as the swellings are gone. In general after a week.
