No, lip injections are not a permanent solution since the effects will eventually wear off.
Depending on the type of filler used, results will last anywhere from 6 to 18 months. The body will gradually absorb the filler material over time.
In some cases, minor touch-ups may be necessary to maintain the desired look.
What About Permanent Lip Augmentation?
When we tell people that lip fillers aren’t permanent, we sometimes get asked about permanent lip augmentation.
Well, as the name implies, this is a long-term solution for lips that lack definition and volume. The two main types of permanent lip augmentation are lip lifts and lip implants.
Remember though: Getting a lip lift or lip implant is a big decision that will forever alter your lips’ appearance, so think carefully before choosing to move forward.
Of the two procedures, lip lifts are even more permanent than lip implants since implants can indeed be removed, although doing so requires that you get the silicone or polytetrafluoroethylene (ePTFE) implant removed.
Do Lip Fillers Permanently Stretch Your Lips?
Sometimes, yes. If you get lip fillers from an unqualified or inexperienced treatment provider, it’s possible that they may inject too much filler, which can lead to long-term problems.
In the event this happens, fortunately, there is a solution. You can get rid of excess skin from your lips with surgery.
However, going through surgery to fix mistakes that were made during what should have been a simple, straightforward treatment is never desirable.
To avoid any issues with your treatment, you’ll want to consult an experienced and qualified doctor who can walk you through the details of your treatment process.
Is Permanent Lip Augmentation Right For You?
To answer this question, we strongly recommend speaking to your preferred treatment provider. You’ll want to be in good health before getting a procedure done.
If your concerns are strictly cosmetic, you may also want to get some feedback on the operation from your family, your significant other, friend circle, or any mentors you might have to see if the move is the right one to make.
