What Is Lip Augmentation?

As we age, our lips may lose collagen, affecting their fullness and shape. Factors like smoking and sun exposure can also contribute to changes in the appearance of the lips. Lip augmentation at Advanced Plastic Surgery Centre offers a solution to plump up the lips and achieve a more youthful look.

Dr. Perlman provides several options for lip augmentation, including implants and injections. The primary choice for implants is Perma silicone, which comes in various sizes and delivers excellent results. If you are interested in any of the lip augmentation procedures mentioned, please reach out to Advanced Plastic Surgery Centre to learn more or schedule a consultation.

What Does Restylane Silk Do?

During our early adult years, we have smooth skin and youthful features. However, as we age, our lips can develop deep wrinkles and lines due to various factors such as sun exposure, smoking, and the natural aging process. Restylane Silk is an effective solution to address these issues, providing a fuller and rejuvenated appearance to the lips.

At Advanced Plastic Surgery Centre, we offer Restylane Silk to enhance lips that have been affected by aging, sun damage, or smoking. After the procedure, you will experience a natural-looking improvement, with lips that feel revitalized and fuller. If you’re interested, we invite you to view before and after images of actual patients who have undergone Restylane Silk treatment to see the transformative results for yourself.

How Does The Restylane Silk Procedure Restore Lips?

Restylane Silk is specifically designed with smaller, compact particles to provide precise contouring for your lips. As your lips are more delicate and sensitive compared to other facial features, our expert team at Perlman Aesthetics ensures a comfortable experience by using ultrafine needles during the injection process, minimizing any discomfort.

With Restylane Silk, you can achieve the following enhancements:

1. Plump up thinner lips.
2. Smooth out lines on and around the lips.
3. Reshape your lips for a more balanced appearance.

After the treatment, your lips will feel naturally soft and smooth to the touch, maintaining their enhanced appearance for up to six months. Contact us today to schedule your consultation and discover how Restylane Silk can revitalize and beautify your lips.

Benefits of Hyaluronic Acid Fillers

Hyaluronic acid fillers, like Restylane Silk, offer various benefits for lip augmentation:

1. Controlled lip volume: The amount of filler injected can be precisely controlled, allowing the doctor to achieve the desired lip volume for a natural-looking result.

2. Gradual treatment: The injections can be administered gradually over multiple appointments, allowing for a step-by-step approach until the desired lip enhancement is achieved.

3. Easy dissolution of bumps: Any lumps or bumps that may occur due to lip movement can be easily dissolved by the doctor.

4. Reduced bruising and swelling: Hyaluronic acid fillers typically cause less bruising and swelling compared to other dermal fillers, leading to a more comfortable and quicker recovery.

5. Reasonably long-lasting results: While the results of hyaluronic acid fillers are not permanent, they do provide lasting enhancement, and touch-up treatments can be performed to maintain the desired lip shape and volume.

Dr. Joseph Perlman and his team at Perlman Aesthetics are experienced in administering hyaluronic acid fillers for lip augmentation, ensuring beautiful and natural-looking results. Contact us today to learn more and schedule a consultation to discuss your lip enhancement goals.

Are lip implants safe?

Lip implants are generally considered safe; however, as with any cosmetic surgery, there are potential risks to be aware of, including:

1. Bleeding: Some bleeding may occur during or after the procedure, which can be managed by the surgical team.

2. Infection: Although uncommon, there is a risk of infection at the implant site. Antibiotics may be prescribed to prevent or treat infections.

3. Allergic reactions: Some individuals may experience an allergic reaction to the anesthetic (lidocaine) used during the procedure or to the implant material itself.

After the surgery, the risk of side effects is typically minimal, and most patients can resume their normal activities after a smooth recovery. In some cases, lip implants may shift or move over time, requiring additional surgery to reposition or repair the implant.

Lip implants offer a long-term augmentation option, and many individuals are satisfied with the results. However, as with any cosmetic procedure, there is a possibility that some patients may not be fully satisfied with the outcome. If you are not happy with your lip implants, a surgical procedure will be necessary to remove them.

Dr. Joseph Perlman and the team at Perlman Aesthetics are committed to providing safe and effective lip implant procedures, with personalized care and attention to each patient’s needs and concerns. Please schedule a consultation to discuss your lip augmentation goals and address any questions or concerns you may have.

Lip implants

An alternative to temporary lip fillers for lip augmentation is the use of implants, providing a more permanent solution. During your lip augmentation consultation, your doctor will carefully assess and determine the appropriate size of the lip implant that best suits your desired outcome. The Permalip implant procedure can be performed in-office.

The process begins by sterilizing the skin around the surgical area. The lips are then anesthetized to ensure a comfortable experience for the patient. Once the lips are numb, small incisions are made in each corner of the mouth.

A specialized tool known as a curved alligator clamp is used to create a tunnel within the lip, following the natural shape of the lips. With precision, the curved alligator clamp reaches the end of the tunnel and gently opens to accommodate the implant. The lip implant is carefully guided into the tunnel and positioned beneath the lip fat and above the lip muscles to achieve the desired augmentation.

After the implants are securely in place, the incisions are closed with one or two absorbable sutures, promoting proper healing and reducing the need for suture removal.

Lip implants offer a long-lasting enhancement to the lips, providing a permanent augmentation option for individuals seeking fuller and more defined lips. Dr. Joseph Perlman and his experienced team at Perlman Aesthetics can guide you through the process, addressing any concerns and ensuring a safe and satisfying lip augmentation experience. Please schedule a consultation to explore the benefits of lip implants and determine if they are the right choice for you.

Surgical and nonsurgical options to plump up your lips

Lip fillers

Lip fillers are injectables used to enhance the appearance of both the upper and lower lips. There are various types of lip fillers available, each with its unique characteristics and benefits. Some popular lip fillers include Juvederm, Restylane, Voluma, and Perlane. These fillers can help achieve fuller, plumper lips and improve lip contours for a more youthful and attractive look. To determine the most suitable lip filler for your desired outcome, it’s essential to consult with a qualified medical professional who can assess your individual needs and recommend the best option for you.

Lip implants

Lip implants are indeed a more permanent alternative to temporary lip fillers for lip augmentation. Unlike injectable fillers that need to be repeated periodically to maintain the desired results, lip implants are designed to provide long-lasting enhancement to the lips.

During the lip augmentation procedure using lip implants, a small incision is made at the corner of the mouth, and a tunnel is created inside the lip to carefully place the implant. The implant is positioned underneath the lip fat and above the lip muscles, providing volume and shape to the lips. Once the implant is in place, the incisions are closed with sutures.

Lip implants come in various sizes, allowing the surgeon to customize the augmentation to achieve the patient’s desired lip appearance. Although lip implants are more permanent, it’s crucial to consult with an experienced plastic surgeon to determine if this option is suitable for your specific needs and goals.

Fat grafting

An alternative to synthetic fillers and implants for lip augmentation is autologous lip augmentation, which involves using your own tissue to enhance the lips.
