I had no upper lip that pleased my eye and my reaction to Restylane with other doctor was so horrible, I was looking for safer and longer lasting option.

The procedure was done under anesthesia, as I was having other thing done at the same time. Once I woke up, my lip was slightly swollen but very reasonably so. I could have gone socializing straight away. In two days all the swelling went done. The whole procedure was so easy and pain free I do not know what else to say. I was positively surprised and totally impressed that I did not need to hide my face for days!!! Dr Ashok knew exactly what he was doing, as he placed half of the biggest Surgisil implant (5mm cut half) inside my lip and looks like my body has nothing against silicone as the healing seemed to start straight away. Comparing to restylane which I tried once and had monkey looking face for a week with awful tingling inside my skin and outbreaks inside my lip, this lip implant felt like nothing and . It is a week now after the surgery and there sensation in lips is back to normal. I am so glad i did this, and I never again need to think about having thin upper lip.

Glad you were pleased.

I am fully used to having the implant, I cannot feel it any more and my lip movements have restored fully. I just love the results.
Certainly Dear, I will keep you posted. At least I am great example of a person who did not like Restylane and really thought Restylane ruined my looks as the reaction then was something very scary and unbearable when I had it two years ago. But I will keep you posted. I find all the injectables quite scary (inclusive Botox, which I also tied once) and I will never go back to them, as they feel (to me) something very unnatural to put on face at least.

Thanks for adding some photos. Your lips look great!! Please keep us posted how things are feeling as you continue to get used to the implant, and how it is doing over the long run. We'd love to hear!!

Funny enough I am fully used to it already, took about a week. I hardly feel it and it looks totally natural, not a duck lip at all, the look I hate. I wish i had done it long long time ago.
This is certainly a procedure I will gush about to everybody!!!

Hi all! Just a quick update on my implant. I do not feel it or think about at all. I think the results are so natural and feels good, never questioned my choice of doing this. I am considering an upgrade on the size of the implant though. Now that I know my lips did not react badly on implant, I can go bigger within natural looking range.
Hi! and thanks for your comment! I think my surgeon would be better on to answer that, but let me examine. I think it is quite on the middle. I think this permalipp has been great, I only have it on my upper lip. I think in the future I will increase the volume, within the limits of looking natural still.

Your results are lovely! I just had my permalip repositioned (it kept sliding off to one side) but I'm not totally convinced about its placement in my upper lip. Would you mind telling me exactly where your upper lip implant was positioned? Was it in the middle of the lip or the upper portion, near the vermillion border? Thanks in advance for your response and enjoy your great pout!

Doubled the size

Now 5 mm implant, but not sure whether it actually improves the lip, instead just lifts the whole area above lips, and effect is not lip enhancing.
I am looking into this, I keep getting injections, that just do not last! My Dr said the Perma lip could NOT be cut!! Can you find ot exactly what was done & tell me? Thanks!

Want the 5mm implant out

The more I look at it the more I dislike the effect of duckiness. i think the tunnel is too high above the upper lip.
PLEASE Everyone update!!!! My surgery is soon, still torn between 4 or 5 mm, I have small lips and want them noticeably larger.....

I think 5 mm is not that big, yet you have to make sure the implant is not too long for your lips, and the tunnel where it is placed is close enough to your lips, so that the implant actually enlarges your lips, not "sit" on the top of your lips, and actually does nothing for your lips, instead just lift the whole area above them, which is the case with me. It is slightly weird look. I actually think I want to get the skin lifted (scar under nose) to create a bigger pout. I will get my implant out, definitely not keeping it no matter what.
