Women with plump, full lips are considered more beautiful, sexy, and desirable than women with thin, flat lips. Consequently, it’s natural for women who once had “kissable” lips to want to restore their more youthful appearance and for women who never had that sensual look to wistfully long for it. In either case, whether lips have simply aged and lost their full look or because of a genetic predisposition toward thin, tight lips, it is possible to create gorgeous, plump, and sensual lips through cosmetic surgery.

Due to aging, the effects of the sun, and the consequences of smoking, once beautiful lips can begin to lose their healthy appearance and the mouth begins to droop at the corners, creating a false impression of depression or cynicism. Moreover, when Cupid’s Bow, the v-shape of the upper lip, begins to flatten, a woman appears to lose her youthful appearance. Apart from restoring a woman’s natural beauty, rejuvenating lips through cosmetic surgery can also boost self-confidence and self-esteem.

Unfortunately, not all surgery will create an effect that lasts for long, sometimes lasting for only 3 months, although at times they can last for as long as 9 months. Usually, this surgery consist of injecting collagen or a compound called Restylane. Recovery is also painful for a few days, resulting in swelling, redness, and bruising. The only way to keep the desired look is through repeating the procedure when the effects fade away.

However, a new solution has emerged in cosmetic surgery that does offer a permanent solution. The process is called a Permalip implant. It consists of implanting soft but firm silicone in the lips. It has been approved in Europe after extensive testing and has been used and developed in the United States for the past four years. This method is safe because it does not rupture or break surrounding tissue, nor does it harden or degenerate over time. It requires only a single procedure, can be done in an hour, and leaves no visible scars. Moreover, the effect can be reduced, or even fully reversed. The surgery is done under local anaesthesia and consists of making small incisions at the corner of the mouth then inserting the implant.

For women who desire to have full lips, the Permalip implant is the best choice in cosmetic surgery for a permanent solution.
