Depending on the treatment you choose, your results will likely last between three months and five or more years. Permanent lip fillers, made through the use of implants, have the most lasting effects. On the other hand, collagen-based fillers can last a maximum of four months. Lip fillers, such as Juvederm, are a series of injections that shape and fill the lips.
Lip fillers are only a semi-permanent solution. Lip implants, such as Permalip implants, are soft, solid silicone implants shaped like a natural lip. Permalip implants come in several different sizes. Because Permalip implants are solid and not liquid, this type of silicone implant will not leak or break.
Permalip implants are a permanent solution for lip augmentation. Injectable fillers last 6 months to a year maximum. We use Juvederm and Restylane, which are great for quickly restoring volume for as long as possible. The body absorbs the filling over time.
Although fillers don't last forever, both Hartman doctors agree that they're the best option for lip augmentation, even if you have to make a couple of doctor visits a year. Permanent lip filler is an option for those who don't want frequent lip injections, or where temporary fillers haven't been satisfactory. An alternative to temporary lip fillers for lip augmentation is to use implants, which is a more permanent option. Most patients who undergo permanent lip filling experience about a day of redness and swelling at the injection site, which can be reduced by using cold compresses.
Fat transfer is a type of autologous lip augmentation and is another great option for lip augmentation. A megaphone lip lift is a type of cosmetic surgery that involves making the lips appear fuller without filling. The doctor may use a needle to inject small amounts of anesthetic into the mouth to numb the upper and lower lips. For women who want a more permanent look, fat can be sucked out of an area of the body and injected into the lips in a small surgical procedure.
Unfortunately, it's not possible to make injectable lip fillings last longer once you've received them. Most lip fillers on the label are soluble and can be removed by injecting an enzyme called hyaluronidase to break down the particles and cause the filler to break down. Although hyaluronic acid dermal fillers are currently the most popular form of lip injections used, their longevity is not adequate for some patients. Since lip fillers only last six to eight months, lip filler augmentation is only a semi-permanent solution.
The goal of a New Jersey lip filler, or other surgical procedure, is to reshape the lips and replace lost collagen and hyaluronic acid. Some find that their lips return to normal after a few months, while others don't need another injection for more than a full year. The risks of using permanent lip fillers are more significant compared to temporary lip fillers, and therefore, additional precautions are taken. In addition to using grease for lip augmentation, a part of your own skin or dermis can be used for lip augmentation.
Once a permanent filler is injected into the lips, it is not recommended to inject other fillers, such as temporary fillers onto them.
