Lip Implant | Wilmington DE
Lip implants are uniquely shaped, soft silicone implants carefully inserted to add volume to lips. The lip implants, tapered at the ends, provide a natural way to both match and enhance the existing shape of your lips.
Lip implants are available in different thicknesses and lengths. Discuss the options with your doctor to choose the look that’s right for your face. Usually, the lower lip demands a larger implant with a higher volume. The upper lip normally uses a longer, thinner implant.
Lip implants are very soft to the touch, similar to your natural lips.
There are many popular brands of lip implants available, including PermaLip, Gore Tex and SoftForm. PermaLip implants are developed of ultra soft silicone; Gore Tex and SoftForm derive from PTFE. Both materials are well tested and have been in use for many years.
The Center for Oral, Maxillofacial and Facial Cosmetic Surgery offers products from SurgiSil and Advanta. Perma Facial Implant was developed by SurgiSil in response to patients seeking a permanent improvement to lip augmentation. It represents a safe, definitive solution for permanent soft tissue enhancement for the face. Perma Facial Implant is patented in the US and is FDA cleared for facial enhancement.
Perma Facial Implant is manufactured in the US and made of a soft, solid silicone elastomer. It is produced using an injection molding process creating a smooth, non-porous surface. This implant cannot rupture, deflate or degrade over time and is resistant to tissue in-growth.
The surgical procedure takes less than 30 minutes to perform under local anesthesia in an office setting and patients can resume normal activity the following day. One of its greatest advantages is that it can be removed or replaced easily.
For those patients seeking another option in lip implants, Advanta may be your answer. These implants are placed in about 5 minutes per lip with local anesthesia and the down time is very minimal.
The new Advanta lip implant has proven to be an exciting alternative to other lip implant materials. The Advanta implant is a similar material to Gore-Tex, but it is smoother and pliable and the “next generation” facial implant. The unique one piece construction offers patients a softer, more aesthetic and more comfortable implant with a more natural look and feel. These silky properties allow the implant to be placed in the lips and smile lines and remain virtually undetectable.
