Types of Lip Implants
Do you want to have fuller lips that look like Angelina Jolie? That is not impossible with the modern technology today. Modern technology has answered your prayers and can make it possible to have better-looking lips through lip implants.
There are two techniques that can be chosen for the lip implant procedure. It can be done using grafting or using injections. These techniques are different according to following: fat injections, permanent lip implants, permanent lip enlargement and advancement of the vermillion.
Injecting a certain substance to make the lip look fuller does the first technique used. Collagen and fat is the most common substance that is used. Injecting using collagen is from the cows skin collagen. These are used to enhance the lips but for temporary only. Fat that is injected is from a certain area of the patient’s body, specifically the abdomen and the thighs. Just like the effect of collagen, it is also temporary. Another substance that is used to enhance the lips is the Dermalogen. It has the same function with the fat and collagen and it is temporary too. However, this is derived from another person’s skin. For more safe result, the donor is screened to prevent any disease.
Grafting technique is done by inserting a material by making incision on the corner of you mouth. The result of grafting technique is also temporary and it lasts for about 6 months to 1 year. Grafting technique does the use of Alloderm. This material is also from another person and it is also screened so there are no complications and contamination. The use of fat for grafting has longer effect according to the patient’s who have undergone this type of Lip Implants. It is derived from it’s own body and because of that patient’s prefer this type of technique.
Throughout my more than 40 years in practice, many new products and trends have presented themselves. Usually I have avoided jumping on bandwagons and in retrospect most of those avoidances were wise choices. When the PermaLip procedure was presented to me in a most thoughtful and well fashioned manner, including living models to see and palpate, I immediately recognized it for what it was. It is a simple, low risk,reversible, affordable procedure that would engender a high demand amongst my patients. In fact I underestimated that demand and recognizing the universal satisfaction my patients experienced, I was motivated to have it performed on myself. I am now a new younger appearing me and (if possible) more handsome than ever. It is a great procedure!
