There are many options to consider when thinking about lip augmentation. The desired effect from lip augmentation is fuller, plumper lips with reduction of fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth.
One of the greatest challenges in plastic and cosmetic surgery of the area around the mouth has been the search for an exceptional solution to lip enhancement. Past techniques, both temporary and permanent, have met with disappointing results for both physician and patient.
Temporary solutions typically involve the use of commercially produced fillers or autologous fat, which can be unpredictable with respect to how long they last, and require repetitive treatments that are painful, repetitive, and costly.
Permanent solutions have relied on implants that may, due to their surface characteristics, promote tissue in-growth. This may result in a restriction of movement and an unnatural appearance.
Dagan Cosmetic Surgery is pleased to bring you the safe, definitive solution for permanent lip enhancement. Using a patented FDA approved design made exclusively for the lip that has undergone extensive clinical testing to ensure its safety and efficacy.
The lip implant is made of a soft silicone material to produce a naturally contoured implant with a smooth, non-porous surface. The implant cannot rupture or deflate, and may be removed at any time.
The procedure is performed in a simple office setting under local anesthesia. The entire process can take less than thirty minutes and normal activity may be resumed the following day.
The recovery time for most of these procedures is minimal and injectibles or other non permanent solutions are often used first to determine the level of fullness and correction the patient desires without making the commitment of a permanent change. Our permanent lip implant is the answer.
