The Permalip Procedure: Ultra Long-Lasting Lip Augmentation Using Your Own Tissue!

If you were born with thin lips or if your lips have atrophied with age, there is still a way of enhancing your natural lips to achieve “the look” of fuller and sexier lips. The answer…Permalip lip augmentation.

Dr. Hector M. Viera, in his Houston, TX practice, has been performing lip augmentation for over twenty years and has hundreds of happy patients from his Permalip procedure. Dr. Viera has developed and perfected his lip augmentation technique utilizing the Permalip technique.
Dr. Viera is Triple Board Certified in Facial Plastic Surgery, Cosmetic Surgery and ENT Head and Neck Surgery. He has been a Clinical Assistant Professor at Baylor and the University of Texas at the Houston Medical Center.

Lip Augmentation At Cosmetic Surgery Associates With Dr. Viera

Lip Augmentation, Houston, TXPop culture has increasingly brought lip augmentation into the limelight. Women desire to have the enhanced lips of the stars. Until now there have only been temporary ways of augmenting lips. Injectables have been used in the lips, however, the results diminish within weeks and need to be re-treated frequently which proves very expensive. Fat transfer can last longer but the lips typically need to be severely over-corrected due to much of the fat being absorbed. Softform and Gore-Tex® are materials available for inserting into the lips; they can be felt, frequently show when smiling, and may be rejected. AlloDerm® from cadaver skin lasts a few months but also disappears. Implants can be palpable and may show when smiling, they may also be rejected.

Now – Permalip Augmented Lips By Stimulating Your Own Tissue Formation!

Puregraft Logo

Puregraft™ is currently the most advanced fat transfer technology. Fat augmentation has, up to this point, consisted of directly injecting the fat immediately after removal with little success. Impurities were not filtered from the fat before the transfer. Puregraft ™ filters the fat and results in healthier, more viable fat cells which reduces inflammation. Previously, the redness and swelling of inflammation interfered with the fat’s viability and longevity.

Puregraft™ allows us to be confident that the fat we transfer is viable and long-lasting. Procedures such as injectables or implants will be replaced by transferring your own fat from where you don’t want it to where you do. Rather than wasting the fat removed during liposuction, this technology allows us to re-use the fat. Puregraft ™ can be used to make plump, soft lips, decrease the “smile lines” and “marionette lines” around your mouth, as well as many other areas. What could be more natural than using your own fat?

In one of his Permalip procedures, Dr. Viera utilizes a technique he has named Subdermal Stimulation™ via which the lips are stimulated to form the person’s own collagen. Being the person’s own collagen, the lips feel and look very natural and the results are long-lasting, of many years duration. He has performed his Permalip procedure for over twenty years with excellent results. This procedure is performed during an office visit. Our patients are excited at the fact that they can return to work soon with long-lasting fuller lips. This procedure may be reversed if so desired.*

Another Permalip procedure is performed simultaneously during facial surgical procedures. Tissue from under the skin is obtained from around the earlobe through an incision which heals invisibly. This tissue is soft and has collagen in it, making it ideal for plumping the lips. After it is obtained the tissue is shaped and inserted through the inside of the lip, again with no visible incision. Fuller lips will enhance any cosmetic procedure. There is normally almost no pain. Swelling subsides fairly rapidly. Results are also very long lasting, of many years duration.*
