Augmentation of the lips can be performed through various modalities.
Hyaluronic filler is injected in office and can be done with or without local anesthesia. It is the most popular lip enhancement procedure requested and yields beautiful, but not permanent, results. Results vary and can last up to 6 months.
Perma Facial Implant™ offers a permanent alternative to filler injections, and strives to overcome the potential complications of permanent injectable and solid implants. Perma Facial Implant™ is contoured, has a smooth surface to minimize tissue ingrowth, and is reversible. This procedure can be done under local anesthesia or conscious sedation. Together with Dr. Blanks the appropriate aesthetic plan will be determined.
Patients can return to work and normal activities immediately after the procedure or within 1-2 days. Because of swelling, a soft diet is recommended for 36-48 hrs after the procedure. A moderate amount of swelling is normal and usually disappears within 10-14 days. Sutures are removed within a week of surgery. As always, following the recommendations given by Dr. Blanks and her staff ensures the best aesthetic result.
