Permanent Lip Enhancements Vs. Lip Fillers
Permanent lip enhancements are an alternative to the traditional dermal fillers used for lip augmentation. Both procedures can give your lips volume, but the best one for you depends on your desired results.
If you’re looking for permanent lip augmentation, then PermaLip™ Enhancementmight be perfect for you. Dr. Angelchik in Arizona is one of the first board-certified plastic surgeons to provide PermaLip™. If you’d like to see the benefits of injectable lip fillers without the permanency, then Restylane® or JUVEDERM® may be your best option.
There are several differences between PermaLip™ and lip fillers. These differencs include:
- Cost and procedure frequency. Injectable lip fillers need to be repeated every few months or years to keep your desired look. This causes the cost to add up over time. PermaLip™ has a one-time cost. This FDA-approved lip implant is performed only once, but is reversible if you don’t like the look or feel of your lips.
- Natural look and feel. PermaLip™ is contoured specifically for you. You most likely won’t feel the difference between your natural lips and the implants. Lip fillers are injected directly into your lips, and those done with fat grafts or liposuction could become lumpy. Also, if your weight fluctuates, your augmented lips might become disproportionate. Nutrition and skin care are important to your overall health and the effects of your lip augmentation.
- Implementation and recovery. Both lip fillers and PermaLip™ are fast procedures with a quick recovery time. Injectable lip fillers can be completed in as little as 15 minutes. Permanent lip enhancements can be finished in a minimum of 30 minutes. You may experience some swelling, tenderness and bruising from either procedure, but can resume your normal activities within a day or two.
