Are You a Good Candidate?
Perma Facial Implant may achieve your goals if you want to:
Permanently add fullness to your lips
Enhance the shape of your mouth
Correct asymmetrical lips
During your consultation, Dr. Arledge will discuss whether combining other procedures with your Texas lip enhancement can achieve a more complete rejuvenation, such as BOTOX® Cosmetic or teeth whitening.
Dr. Arledge performs lip augmentation in Texas under local anesthetic to keep you comfortable throughout this routine procedure. She makes a small incision in each corner of your mouth, then inserts the implant and positions it. Dr. Arledge uses absorbable sutures for the 30-minute procedure.
In contrast to temporary techniques such as injectable fillers, only one implant procedure is needed. An extensive variety of implant sizes are available, and Dr. Arledge will choose the right one for achieving the level of enhancement that you want, from voluptuous to subtle fullness. Because the Perma Facial Implant tapers at both ends, it conforms naturally to the shape of your lips. It is made of soft silicone, with no risk of rupture over time. If you subsequently decide that you want additional enhancement, the implant is easily replaced with a different size.
Results and Benefits
Whether they wanted only a little more fullness or dramatically enhanced lips, Dr. Arledge’s patients typically say that they love the results.
