Since PermaLip™ implants are solid, patients do not have to worry about leakage and silicone ruptures. The implants are invisible to the naked eye, ensuring a natural look. “I always double and triple check implant placement to ensure that it is properly centered and that there are no signs of implant visibility,” says Dr. Jessica Kulak, double board certified facial plastic surgeon at The Naderi Center for Cosmetic Surgery Specialists.
“Lip implants are a great and reasonable option for those patients who are seeking permanent lip augmentations or for those who want to achieve more longevity compared to lip injections,” says Dr. Kulak. The ideal patients for PermaLip™ implants are individuals who want fuller lips but do not wish to receive lip injections 2 to 3 times a year. While lip injections can effectively add natural-looking volume to the lips, they can be painful and almost always result in a few days of swelling and bruising. Additionally, if the injections are not performed by an expert, patients may be displeased with the results.
Patients who are wondering whether they can benefit from PermaLip™ are encouraged to schedule a consultation with Dr. Kulak. She can explain the benefits and risks of the procedure and assist patients in selecting the proper size implant for the upper, lower, or both lips. If the patient has had lip injections in the past, the selection process will be fairly simple.
“A 4 mm implant would be similar to 0.5 cc of Juvaderm™ and a 5 mm implant is similar to 1 cc of Juvaderm™. When coming for a consultation I always ask patients how much of a syringe of filler do they usually have injected to each lip, then we base our implant size selection based on their answer,” says Dr. Kulak.
The PermaLip™procedure is performed under oral sedation and local anesthesia in about an hour. It begins when Dr. Kulak inserts the implant via two very small, 4mm incisions at the inside corner of the mouth on the upper and low lips. The implant is then passed through a tunnel that is created inside the lip. All sutures are absorbable, and patients experience very little discomfort during the brief recovery period.
Dr. Kulak of The Naderi Center for Cosmetic Surgery Specialists was one of the first surgeons in the Washington, DC area to offer PermaLip™. Patients from across the country have come to Dr. Kulak to benefit from her expertise and experience this revolutionary implant technology first hand.
