Lip augmentation using implants at Pearlman Aesthetic Surgery is a long-lasting alternative to temporary fillers. A soft silicone implant that mimics the natural tissue of the lip is surgically implanted to enhance lip volume. Lip implants are very soft, pliable, and feel just like natural lip tissue.

What is recovery like from lip implants?

While lip implants require a surgical procedure, the pain and recovery times should be minimal. Any pain and swelling can be mitigated with ice packs and pain medication. The recovery time for most lip implant procedures is estimated at one to three days and the small stitches will be taken out after a week. For one to two weeks, it is advised that you do not apply too much pressure (such as pressing your lips together tightly) or stretch your lips (such as opening your mouth too widely) to make sure the implants stay in place.

Am I a good candidate for lip implants?

If you are feeling a lack of confidence in your appearance due to thin lips, fine lines, and an undefined or small mouth, you may be a good candidate for lip implants. While lip fillers can also be a great choice, lip implants would be advised for those patients who are looking for a long-lasting option.

As a valued patient at Pearlman Aesthetic Surgery, we sincerely appreciate your trust in our team. The health and safety of our patients and staff is our top priority. Our in-office safety policies are aligned with the latest guidelines issued by the CDC and local government officials related to COVID-19.

For all patients at Pearlman Aesthetic Surgery,

  • Patients must arrive wearing their own face masks, and continue to wear them in office until taken into the exam room, and sanitize their hands upon arrival.
  • Patients will be required to have their temperature taken using our contact-less scanner.
  • A COVID-19 Disclosure Consent must be completed during check-in.
  • Social distancing is seen as the most effective way of slowing the spread of the virus causing COVID-19. Patients should avoid close contact, minimize interaction, and put distance between themselves and other patients within the office.
  • Patients should attend to their appointments alone. Accompanying guests, friends or family members must wait outside the office until after the appointment is finished.
  • Due to the space of our Exam Rooms, we encourage our minor patients to bring only one parent or guardian to attend with them during the appointment.
  • Credit cards will be asked to be reserved on file to reduce handling of payments.
  • Patients should arrive only during their scheduled appointment time. Arriving too early will not allow you to be seen sooner, and arriving late may result in re-scheduling the appointment.
  • Pets are not permitted into the office.

For new patients, a valid photo ID must submitted and online intake forms must be completed no later than the day before the scheduled appointment. If the intake forms are not completed by then, the appointment is subject to cancellation.
