Lip Implants

If genetics or lifestyle choices have left you with small, unattractive lips, Dr. Daria Hamrah can use lip implants to enhance their attractiveness and fullness.

Full, luscious lips are a desirable trait and can improve your personal and professional life by providing you with the extra boost of confidence you need to obtain your goals.

Problems Addressed by Lip Implants

Lip implants can enhance the lower, upper or both lips simultaneously. Whether your lips are too small, appear deflated, or asymmetrical, lip implants can help you achieve the facial appearance you desire.

Common lip problems that can be corrected with a lip implant include:

  • Thin lips
  • No upper lip
  • Lack of a bottom lip
  • Lopsided lips
  • Poor lip definition
  • An overly gummy smile

Types of Lip Implants

Previous lip implant types have offered patients little success due to the unnaturally firm feel they provide. However, over recent years, technological advances have led to the development of vastly improved types of lip implants, including:

  • PermaLip Silicone Lip Implants – Using soft solid silicone implants that are removable at any time. PermaLip offers a permanent alternative to repetitive, costly, and painful filler injections, and strives to overcome the potential complications of permanent injectable and solid implants. PermaLip is contoured to the shape of your lips, has a smooth surface to minimize tissue ingrowth, and is reversible.
  • Verafil Lip Implants – Using a biocompatible material as an outer shell and filling the shell with a saline filled silicone sac allows these lip implants to be curved to naturally conform to your lip’s contours
  • Donor human tissue
  • AlloDerm – A natural look and feel implant made from pliable cellular tissue

Lip Implant Procedure

Unlike other facial cosmetic surgeries, lip implants are a relatively non-invasive procedure that can be performed in approximately thirty minutes. Patients are placed under local anesthesia and recovery entails minimal discomfort.

Other Lip Enhancement Procedure Options

Lip implants are not the ideal solution for every patient seeking adjustments to the appearance of their lips. Only a consultation with Dr. Hamrah can determine the appropriate cosmetic solution to achieve your cosmetic goals.

Other common procedures that can enhance your lips include:

  • Dermal Fillers
  • Lip Lift
