Silicon Injection is Permanent?

Doctor Answers 3

Silicone in the Lips

Silicone in the lips is a permanent filler.  There is an expression which is "there is no such thing as a permanent filler just a permanent problem."   Think long and hard about a permanent filler and if it is still something you want go to an experienced injector.

Silicone injections

Dear saralove,

  1. Silicone is a permanent filler
  2. If you get it done, make sure they have a lot of experience and are reputable
  3. We have seen many botched job from unqualified injectors

Silicon Injection is Permanent?

Silicon injections are permanent. This is the most important issue to understand. If the injections are done well, fantastic. If not you're left with a permanent problem that is very difficult to remedy. I hope this information is helpful.
