I have heard about Permalip and wanted to know if there was another solution to having permanently enlarged lips? (Photo)

Many thanks for your post and photo.
You may benefit from fat transfer, although this is unpredictable as fat is quite unstable. You would need to see a very experienced surgeon in this area to get their take on what can be achieved.
Permalip is a great option though and we have had many happy clients with this option. Permalip™ are revolutionary lip implants that are designed to look and feel natural, yet enhance your lip volume to your desired size. It does not deflate, degrade or rupture over time. Although it’s permanent, it is designed for the ease of placement if a patient wishes to achieve a larger or smaller enhancement or even return to the lips original appearance. It does not limit lip movement and provides a natural look.
All the best

Permanently enlarged lips
I honestly would advise against doing anything to enlarge the lips permanently. If you think about this, preferences and styles change over time, as does your facial structure. Something that looks just the way you want it now may not be what you want 20 or 30 years from now. In addition, permanent implants and fillers have been fraught with complications, and how do you change something that you don't like if it's permanent? This advice comes from the heart; I would tell you the same thing if you were my sister.
While Beletero and Juvéderm ultra are my favorite sellers for the lips, I have on occasion used Juvéderm ultra plus for more longevity. You need to be willing to accept some swelling for a few days to a week or two, however, if you are going to take this route.
All the best, Dr. Clark

I really do not think it is a good idea to have your lips permanently enlarged. This was a more common practice years ago and it was full of complications. As you age the shape of your lips and your face will change and the results may not look cosmetically elegant as you age. I would consider Juvederm since the results will last a year. Please consult an expert. Best, Dr. Green
