Is a Lip Augmentation Permanent?

Big, pillowy lips are a beauty trait that isn’t going out of style. Celebrities like Angelina Jolie and Jessica Alba are known for their luscious pouts, but not everyone is lucky enough to be born with great lips.

Lip augmentation describes a cosmetic procedure that enhances the shape and volume of your lips with results that can last for years. Luis Vinas, MD, and his team at L.A. Vinas Plastic Surgery, have three locations in Florida that provide lip augmentation so you can amplify your sex appeal.

Why it’s done

Lips are a sign of sensuality, femininity, and love. This may be part of the reason why 34,236 females received lip augmentation in 2020, and many men, too. Lip augmentation is one of the most sought-after procedures that people come into our office due to its predictable outcome and beautiful results.

Do you have thin lips? Do you wish you could enhance your facial contours with a better lip shape?

Lip augmentation:

  • Adds volume to thin lips
  • Corrects facial asymmetry
  • Improves the shape of your lips
  • Enhances the ratio of your top and bottom lip
  • Smooths away lip lines

Dr. Vinas helps patients get full, kissable lips with two kinds of lip augmentation: hyaluronic acid fillers and/or PermaLip™ implants.

Hyaluronic acid fillers — safe, popular, and effective

You’ve probably heard of fillers if you’ve gotten injectables before. Hyaluronic acid is one of the most common types of fillers used in the lips for their safe use and beautiful results.

Your body contains hyaluronic acid, most commonly found in your eyes and joints. Since it’s a naturally occurring substance, you don’t have to worry about an adverse reaction or uncomfortable side effects.

In minutes, Dr. Vinas administers a series of injections to your lips to add volume with immediate results. You might have noticed that your skin attracts less moisture as you’ve gotten older. Hyaluronic acid fillers don’t just plump your lips, they also pull water into your tissues to fill the cracks in your lips and keep your cells replenished with moisture.

How long do they last?

One of the most common questions regarding lip fillers is: “How long does it last?” Depending on what kind of filler is used, you can expect results to last for 6-8 months. That makes it a cost-effective treatment for getting fuller lips without the drawbacks of surgery.

PermaLip — the most permanent solution

Once you get full, kissable lips, you probably want to maintain the results. While fillers generally have to be done a couple of times a year, some patients seek a more permanent option.

PermaLip is the one-stop shop for patients looking to maintain their results for many years without the need for touch-ups. Using silicone lip implants, Dr. Vinas enhances your lips to the size of your liking with natural results that are soft to the touch.

PermaLip is done in four simple steps:

  1. Local anesthesia is applied to lips to keep you comfortable
  2. Dr. Vinas makes two tiny incisions in the lips
  3. He uses a special tool to place silicone implants
  4. Lastly, he closes the incisions with dissolvable sutures

PermaLip is a minimally invasive procedure that generally requires a three-day recovery.

How long does it last?

PermaLip costs more than dermal fillers, but most patients love the idea of not needing frequent touch-ups. The treatment takes only about 30 minutes and can last for 1-6 years.

The bottom line

Many people decide to undergo lip augmentation to amplify their sex appeal. It’s important to note that lip augmentation is a personal decision and should only be done for you.

Dermal fillers and PermaLip are two procedures Dr. Vinas provides to give you the big, pouty lips you’ve always dreamed of. Results can last anywhere from six months to multiple years. Are you ready to improve your lip volume for a more youthful demeanor?
