Permalip 5mm Implants - Denver, CO

A strong cautionary word of warning to anyone...

A strong cautionary word of warning to anyone considering this procedure. First off. It is extremely traumatic. Your lips will be butchered. I experienced a vagal response while having it done. The pain when I got home and the lidocaine wore off was horrible. I am no whimp having had fillings at the dentist with no novocaine as I react badly to it. It makes me pass out even hours later. My lips were swollen for 6 weeks despite following the rules to a tee. Despite that. The implants are extremely uncomfortable. Expect to have dry lips for months, if not for ever. Reason being the implants push your lips away from the glands that supply your lips with the neccesary oils to help keep them from drying out. My lips felt sore and horriby traumatized. They can actually take 6 months to a year to completely heal. Eating is an ordeal. You will slober as they dont have normal sensation, actually very little. I had mine remvoved today at the 7 week point. My Doc agreed they were too big, also my lips looked great with just a half vial of juviderm. I could have gone down a size, however I had decided I hated everything about them. They do not reshape your lips. Only give volume. Juviderm can give you a gorgeuos pout. I wasted 3 grand. Also know this. You will have a ducky distinct look that people cant help but notice. Another disturbing aspect is that it will enhance your nasolabial fold and age your profile unless you are very youthful. And by that I mean under 30. I have nothing to gain, only my advice and to help anyone from going through the same trauma and.expense that I did. I am a trama ICU nurse , so I am all about
helping people.
