I love my permanent lip implants because they have changed my appearance for the better, in a very subtle way, and make me look and feel a lot younger. Photos of me come out better, too, because the thicker lips give more '3 dimensionality' to my face.
But best of all, they're permanent. Unlike temporary fillers, they don't 'wear off' in 3-6 months, nor do they have that 'half-life' effect (meaning that in the beginning your lips are over-injected and too fat, but then gradually shrink back to their original size. In other words, there's only a small window of time when your lips look the way you'd like them to look.
Of course, Octamom looks ridiculous with her huge 'gummy worm' permanent lip inserts that she had put in--you can even see how she hooks the upper 'worm' on her upper teeth to create that peculiar smile that she thinks looks like Angelina Jolie's. You don't want to look ridiculous--.
But done right, permanent lip enhancement looks really feminine and lovely.

Pros: Makes me look younger, sexier; adds dimension and character to my facial expressions.
Yes, worth it. Would definitely recommend my doctor in Austin TX.
Cost: $2200, I think, for both upper and lower lips. Pain minimal.
Cons?: Can't think of any at this time--and believe me, I'd tell you if I did. I'm wondering if thicker inserts would have looked nicer and I'll ask my doctor about it--he said the inserts are easy to remove if necessary--but I don't want to look like Octamom, either.
