What would be my recommended Permalip implant size?
Thank you for your question. Lip Implants may
be a reasonable option for those individuals who are seeking permanent lip
enhancement or for those who have not been satisfied with the longevity of
effect afforded by hyaluronic acid fillers. The PermaLip (Perma Facial) Implant
is FDA approved for permanent lip augmentation. This implant is currently
available in three sizes (diameter); 3 mm, 4 mm and 5 mm. During a
consultation, your surgeon should have implant samples for you to examine. You
can evaluate for yourself the size, shape, and feel of each implant. Also, your
surgeon will have the opportunity to examine you, learn about your goals and
provide his or her recommendation. It may be helpful to inform your surgeon
about whether you had ever achieved with prior treatments the lip appearance
that you like. If so, how was that achieved? Using filler? If so, how many
syringes? Do you have photos of your lips following that treatment that you can
show the doctor? After consultation, most
women choose the 4 mm implant. Which size may be recommended for you is highly
variable and would depend upon your current lip size and shape, your goals, and
your aesthetic taste.
What would be my recommended Permalip implant size for both upper and lower?
I find that the smallest lip implant makes little to no difference in the appearance of your lips. The majority of my patients get the largest one, as it is not really that large. At one time, the company has said they were going to make a larger implant, but to date that has not happened.
