If you are like many, you may find that you want to get lip injections in order to have fuller, healthier looking lips. Not only will it change the shape of your lips, but it will also change your appearance and could help you achieve younger-looking features. With that said, there are two main types of lip injections – permanent and non-permanent. Each has its own benefits, but PermaLip injections could be a better choice, especially if you will want to continue the look of full lips.

Non-Permanent Options

Non-permanent lip injections can provide you with the results you need, but you must continue the injections throughout the years to maintain the same look. There are three options, including fat grafting, dermal fillers and alloderm. Most people do not enjoy having fat removed from other areas and placed into the lips. While dermal fillers are easier for most people to grasp and select, the injections can cause pain and they will need to be done every so often, as recommended by your plastic surgeon.

If you are new to the fad of plumping up your lips, it may be beneficial to consider non-permanent options first, so you can select the right amount of fullness you prefer and what looks best with your personal body. After you have a good idea of what you want, and after trying a few different sizes, consider PermaLip implants to achieve the look you want without constant visits to the plastic surgeon.

Permanent Options

PermaLip lip injections offer you the ability to have a natural-looking mouth that is soft and inviting. One of the biggest reasons people turn to permanent lip injections is that they will likely never have to have the process repeated again. While there could be certain complications where removal of the implants are necessary, in most cases the risk is slight.

Another great reason to consider these implants is that it will only take about 15 minutes and you will be under local anesthesia. While this is still considered a surgery, it is safer than other surgeries.

If you were to have a non-permanent injection first, you would be able to show the plastic surgeon the type of lip injections you prefer, so that he or she can replicate it and gives you the size and width you want.

Because this decision is a big one, it is important to take your time and choose carefully. While the implants can be removed at a later time, you don’t want to go through the hassle and cost to have them inserted and then decide they weren’t what you wanted.

Your plastic surgeon will speak with you about lip injections and tell you about any risks or complications that may arise. He or she will also help you choose new lips that will fit your face well and look right on your body. However, the choice is still yours, so make sure you truly enjoy the look of your face with the lips you choose.
