What is the Permalip Lip Augmentation?
Among the methods that exist to increase the lips’ volume, one of the most innovative is the Permalip. It is a solid but soft silicone prosthesis. This feature makes it possible to avoid spillage of the prosthesis liquid, Permalip being one of the safest methods of all that exist. The insertion of this prosthesis in the upper and lower lips (or in only one of the lips) allows a permanent and natural result.
During the examination before treatment, the surgeon will decide, together with the patient, about the length and volume of the lips to be in harmony with the rest of the face. There are, in fact, different sizes of Permalip prostheses that make it possible to avoid unpleasant surprises after the intervention, such as the so-called «boat lip». Therefore, it is possible to anticipate what the final result will be with the operation.
How is the Permalip inserted in Lip Augmentation?
The intervention is performed under general anaesthesia; therefore, it is painless and lasts for almost half an hour for each lip. After the operation, the patient does not need to be hospitalized, and he can return home. The only problem that can be found during the postoperative period is the appearance of minor eczema or oedema in the treated area, which will decrease with the passage of days, allowing you to admire the results.
The surgeon will make two small incisions on one side of each lip to create a kind of “pouch” where the prosthesis will be inserted. The silicone is introduced using curved scissors and will be appropriately placed inside the lip. Finally, the two small incisions will be closed so that they will be completely invisible.
The price of the Permalip varies according to the chosen specialist: it ranges between 2,50,000 and 4,100,00 Indian rupees for one lip, and between 2,00,000 and 4,44,000 in the case in which you want to increase the volume of both.
Advantages of Permalip Lip Augmentation
The characteristics of Permalip make it one of the safest methods that can be used to increase the volume of the lips. It will not be necessary, for example, to undergo regular injections of hyaluronic acid to have full lips. Permalip offers permanent and natural results.
Drawbacks of Permalip Lip Augmentation
The risks associated with inserting it inside the lips are almost non-existent since silicone is solid. Therefore, compared to other liquid or gel-filled substances, they cannot break or leak, or cause damage.
Anyone can undergo this intervention, as there are no contraindications for the insertion of the prosthesis. Despite this, those patients who have cardiac pathologies or serious illnesses should abstain. To avoid any type of side effects, it is essential to consult a specialist, who will recommend the measure that best suits each person and determine whether they can undergo the operation without risk.
However, not all cosmetic doctors and surgeons are pro-Permalip. Many still refuse to adopt this procedure for various reasons, among which we highlight the following:
- When it comes to prosthetics, there is always the risk of encapsulation.
- If the result is not as expected, the prosthesis must be removed again with another intervention.
- Many defend the more natural results of lip filling and hyaluronic acid injections.
