Surgisil Permalip Implant
Silicone Lip Augmentation

Serving clients near Mansfield, Arlington, Fort Worth & Dallas, Texas

Mansfield Cosmetic Surgery Center is proud to provide Surgisil Permalip Implant, otherwise known as lip silicone augmentation, to our clients living near Mansfield, Arlington, Dallas, and Fort Worth.  This is a great procedure for patients who have been using lip fillers like Juvederm® or Restylane® for years but are interested in a more permanent option. PermaLip implants are made of soft silicone and the procedure is performed under local anesthesia in about 45 minutes in our office.  The Permalip implant has been featured on “The Doctor’s” show.

How do I know which implant is the right size for me?

The Surgisil Permalip Implant™ is available in a variety of sizes to accommodate the uniqueness of your individual lip anatomy. During your consultation, Dr. Michael L. Thornton will measure each of your lip lengths and determine the most appropriate sizes for you. There are three separate diameter sizes (3mm, 4mm, and 5mm) and each implant comes in three separate lengths (55mm, 60mm, and 65mm) for a total of nine possible choices.

What if I want to have the implant(s) removed?

Although the PermaLip implant is designed to remain “permanent”, under specific circumstances, it may be removed should a person wish to return to their original appearance.

What should I expect immediately post-operatively?

You should expect post-operative lip swelling, bruising, and tenderness with the majority of bruising and swelling resolving after the first week. Over the course of 7-10 days following the procedure, your lip swelling will resolve. Results are individualized.

Is the Permalip procedure painful?

Dr.  Thornton will perform the procedure using local anesthesia and facial nerve blocks. Acute discomfort usually resolves after the first 1-2 days with the use of prescribed pain medication, ice, and elevation.

When will I be able to see my results?

It may take several weeks to see your results. However, the operative site will be swollen for the first few days following the procedure. As the swelling subsides you will begin to see your final result. Results are individualized.
