We have done lips on the show before, but we broke new ground by doing a procedure with the new Perma Facial implants by SurgiSil. Lip augmentation is one of the most common plastic surgery procedures. Let's face it: fuller, healthier, younger lips have been in style since Marilyn Monroe and are not going out of style anytime soon. We do the procedure on men and women alike, but the temporary results of injections aren't the answer for everyone.
Enter the lip implant. They aren't new, but they are recently improved. In the '80's they were made out of gore-tex material. However, they shrunk and became less elastic and more firm as the years wore on.
SurgiSil's PermaLip implants are made out of silastic, like chin and cheek bone implants, which are much more problem-free.This recent improvement will mean that the operation will become much more popular in the near future.
