Paying more than lip service to new treatment

Permanent lip enhancement has recently been introduced to the UK. Adrian Richards, of Aurora Clinics, has introduced PermaLip™, a revolutionary silicone lip implant which mimics the contours of the lip and provides a natural-looking alternative to temporary lip fillers, which need constant top-ups.

Mr Richards says:

“The arrival of Permalip™ in Berkshire is great news as it provides a viable and cost-effective alternative to fillers, which have to be topped up every four to six months and treatments can be painful. Permalip™ is a soft implant which gives very natural results, the procedure takes just 15 minutes under local anaesthetic and the implant is passed through a small incision in the lip which is sealed with a dissolvable suture. The patient can be up and around resuming normal activities within a couple of hours and variable swelling can occur for around a week or so following the procedure.”

Permalip™ is a patented, CE marked device designed exclusively for lip enhancement. Is manufactured by SurgiSil and comes in a variety of sizes. The implant cannot deflate or rupture and can be easily reversed if a patient wants to have it resized or removed entirely. The surface of the implant is non-porous, which minimises the chance of tissue adherence or in growth from surrounding lip tissue.

Says Adrian:
“The procedure is still very new to the UK but has been used in the United States where it has undergone extensive clinical tests. The cost is around £2,500, which, if a patient is having temporary lip fillers injected regularly at around £300, can be a cost effective and convenient solution in the long term.”
