Lip Enhancement - PermaLip®

Lip enhancement is a very popular surgery performed worldwide. Lips can be enhancement using a special filler that will create a new shape. Lip filler is a temporary solution, as after a few months the filler is being absorbed by patient's body.

If you are looking for more permanent, but still safe method, you can consider lips implants. We offer „PermaLip Implant” procedure (patented by American company „SurgiSil”). The procedure does not require repeated treatments and is permanent. Nevertheless, if you wish so, the implant can be removed anytime or replaced with smaller or bigger size. The implant is made out of soft solid silicone, has undergone extensive testing and is fully approved in Europe.

Permalip - lip enhancement with implants!

Taking into consideration your expectations, your doctor advices the size during direct consultation. The procedure takes around 30 minutes and is performed under local anaesthesia, it does not require hospitalisation. Soon after the procedure you can come back home or a hotel. The procedure leaves no scarring as small incisions are made inside the corners of the lips, through the incisions the implant is inserted. After the procedure you should take a lot of rest and the next day after the procedure you can start to perform daily activities.
