Permalip Implants

Permalip implants

As an innovative method of lip enhancement, Permalip is a silicone implant that gives effective, permanent yet reversible plumping effects. Permalip serves as an equally safe and effective alternative to injections, which dissolve within a 6-9 months. The implants are made of tapered soft silicone that we fit to your individual features to give you your desired results. The procedure is performed within 1-hour under local anaesthetic.

Permalip implants can be used to restore the youthful prominence of the lip shape that we begin to see with age, adds volume to the lips, reduces sagging and drooping, and ease deeper wrinkles on the lips to give a smoother and more plump effect.

The procedure

The procedure involves inserting the flexible Permalip implants into the lips through the corners of the mouth, giving natural enhancement to the shape of your lips. The Permalip implant is adjusted to sit in the centre of the lips before the incisions are sealed with absorbable sutures. Permalip is designed expertly so that it cannot leak, rupture, degrade or deflate inside the lip. The coating on the surface of the implant prevents the silicone from coming in contact with your body, it prevents excess scar tissue and it prevents tissue in-growth. The malleable nature of the Permalip implants means that the implants will conform and move with your lips naturally and untraceably.

The benefit of Permalip implants

One of the main benefits of Permalip is that it inherently combats the major limitations of temporary lip enhancement. However, despite its permanency, a huge comfort about the Permalip procedure is that it is entirely reversible. The smooth exterior of the Permalip implant means that it is easily removed, so the procedure can be reversed or altered to achieve smaller or larger enhancement should you choose to do so. Permalip is available in our Glasgow and Sevenoaks clinic exclusively through Mr Shoaib, the only plastic surgeon in Scotland who offers Permalip.

Benefits of Permalip Implants include:

  • Permanently enhanced lip shape
  • Restoration of youthful plumpness to lips
  • Permalip may be more cost effective than temporary lip fillers in the long run
  • Predictable results as you can choose the size of your Permalip implant
  • Natural anti-ageing results, as Permalip implants restore vitality to your facial features

What are the risks?

Risks include scarring at the corner of the mouth (though these should fade over time), and medication will be taken to avoid potential infection.

Is it painful?

We perform the procedure under local anaesthetic, so whilst the injections for the anaesthetic may be slightly painful the actual procedure won’t hurt, as your lips will be entirely numb.

How long does it last?

Results from Permalip implants are permanent, however they can be removed entirely or removed to be resized whenever you want.
