Dr. Weber was excellent, and outside of having a master touch, was supportive and responsive throughout the entire process. Having now known him several months, I consider Dr. Weber not only my surgeon, but a family friend. With Dr. Weber, results were truly revolutionary, and the process couldn't have been easier.

Who makes a good candidate for a lip augmentation procedure?

Patients who would like to improve the appearance of their lips may be candidates for a PermaLip lip augmentation procedure. The procedure is ideal for patients who are looking for similar but longer-lasting results than those provided by traditional fillers. The procedure is usually only performed on healthy, non-smoking adults who have a positive mindset and realistic expectations. The definitive way for patients to determine if they are a candidate is to schedule and attend an initial consultation with Dr. Weber.

What is Dr. Weber’s approach to a PermaLip lip augmentation?

A PermaLip lip augmentation is performed in a Weber Facial Plastic Surgery office procedure suite. Dr. Weber typically performs the procedure using local anesthesia. The injections used to administer the anesthesia are similar to those patients receive at the dentist.

In some cases, local anesthesia may be supplemented with oral sedation to help patients feel completely comfortable and relaxed. The procedure is performed using the following steps:

  • Very tiny incisions are made at the corners of the mouth.
  • Small pockets are created within the upper and lower lips and implants are gently placed just beneath the lip tissue.
  • After the implants are precisely positioned, incisions are carefully closed using dissolvable sutures. Total procedure time is approximately 30 minutes.

What can I expect from my recovery?

Patients may return home shortly after their procedure. Postsurgical swelling can be managed by following Dr. Weber’s recovery instructions. Pain medications may be used if patients feel any discomfort or pain after the local anesthesia wears off. Over the course of 5-7-days, swelling decreases and patients are able to return to work and normal day-to-day activities. The first postoperative appointment occurs five days after the procedure.

What will my results be like?

Patients see their results as postsurgical swelling subsides. The lips take on a full, natural, and balanced look. Usually, final results are seen three weeks to three months after the procedure when all of the swelling has resolved.

Dr. Weber’s knowledge, experience, and skills allow him to provide patients with results that meet their goals and perfectly compliment their attractive facial features. Additionally, PermaLip implants are especially effective for the following reasons:


  • The soft, smooth silicone-based implant is contoured for a natural appearance
  • Various sizes can be used to achieve a customized look
  • Implants come in a variety of sizes and lengths to customize your result.
  • Results are permanent. Unlike traditional filler procedures, repeat procedures are not necessary to maintain results.

How much does lip augmentation cost?

Fees for lip augmentation can range from $2500 to $3500 per lip. The wide range is due to the fact that each client will require a different approach. Dr. Weber will make sure you leave your consultation with a clear understanding of your financial costs and a strategy for funding your procedure.

Why Dr. Weber?

Dr. Weber has a refined and sophisticated eye when it comes to facial rejuvenation procedures, a skill he has been honing throughout his entire career. After graduating from Boston University’s School of Medicine, Dr. Weber went on to complete a demanding 5-year residency in Otolaryngology and Head and Neck Surgery at Oregon Health and Science University. He then further maximized his talent with an elite fellowship in Facial Plastic Surgery at the University of Michigan.

Dr. Weber knows the value of giving back to the community, and is frequently involved in humanitarian efforts globally that connect plastic surgeons with the most needy populations. Dr. Weber recently traveled to Tanzania to provide life-saving medical and surgical services to people suffering from facial deformities.

Lip Augmentation FAQs

What are the differences between dermal fillers and PermaLip?

Dermal fillers are gel-like substances that can be injected into the lips and face to smooth wrinkles and restore volume. Popular dermal fillers include Juvederm Vollure, Volbella, and Restylane. Dermal filler results can be excellent for up to one year. Repeat injections are needed to maintain results.

PermaLip is a silicone-based implant that is surgically implanted into the lips. Because implants come in a variety of shapes and sizes results can be customized to meet the aesthetic goals of patients and provide a natural and balanced appearance to the lips. Results are long-lasting and repeat procedures do not need to be performed.

Are there risks associated with the procedure?

There are risks associated with all surgical procedures. The risks specific to a PermaLip lip augmentation are carefully explained to patients by Dr. Weber during initial consultations. The overwhelming majority of patients find that the potential benefits of surgery far outweigh the risks. Risks rarely play a factor in patients’ treatment decisions.

Can I combine my procedure with another cosmetic procedure?

PermaLip lip augmentations can be combined with other procedures. Lip augmentation pairs nicely with a lip lift procedure and other procedures that aim to create a more youthful appearance. Patients who are interested in combining procedures are advised to discuss their aesthetic goals with Dr. Weber so a perfect treatment plan can be created.

What should I expect after my procedure?

Patients should expect some swelling after their procedure. Dr. Weber gives patients very specific instructions regarding how to manage swelling. Patients who follow Dr. Weber’s instructions see their swelling quickly subside.

How can I maximize my results?

Patients who wish to maximize their results are advised to follow all of Dr. Weber’s recovery instructions. Lip moisturizers that contain sunscreen can be worn to protect the lips and keep them healthy. Smoking and drinking out of straws are to be avoided as they can cause lip wrinkling and volume loss.

Will my results look natural?

Dr. Weber’s patients receive natural results that perfectly blend with their attractive facial features. One of the key measures Dr. Weber takes to provide such results is making sure the lower lip is slightly larger than the upper. This gives a balanced look and reduces the possibility of the lips not looking natural.

Is the procedure painful?

Local anesthesia is used so patients do not feel any pain or discomfort during the procedure. The anesthesia is administered via injection using tiny needles that cause very little pain.

Will I be able to feel the implants in my lips?

PermaLip implants are made out of a soft and natural feeling material. Once the swelling goes down, patients’ lips will feel normal. Implants will not be felt.

Will kissing be different after my procedure? Will be speech be affected?

Neither patients nor their partners will feel any difference when kissing. Speech will not be affected in any way.

Will I have a noticeable scar after my procedure?

The incisions used to perform the procedure are very small. They are placed in the corners of the mouth within the red lip tissue. It is rare for this part of the lip to heal with any visible scarring. Special sutures are used to close incisions. Stitches will dissolve on their own or will be taken out by Dr. Weber at the first postoperative appointment. A noticeable scar will not form.

Do I need to stop smoking to have my procedure?

Smoking affects the body’s healing processes and increases the risk of infection. Thus, patients who smoke will be asked to stop two weeks before and after their procedure. Patients who wish to maintain their results are encouraged to continue not smoking as constantly puckering the lips can cause wrinkling and volume loss. Excessive drinking out of a straw can have the same effect and should be avoided.

Is it important for my procedure to be performed by a Facial Plastic Surgeon?

A Facial Plastic Surgeon is the most qualified medical professional to perform lip augmentation procedures. A board-certified Facial Plastic Surgeon is able to analyze the lips and perform a procedure that adds to their natural beauty. Board-certified Facial Plastic Surgeons use the latest surgical techniques and best implants to help patients receive excellent results and recover quickly.

Is Dr. Weber board-certified?

Dr. Weber is a double board-certified Facial Plastic Surgeon. He has provided countless patients with the lips they have always wanted using a PermaLip lip augmentation procedure.

Can Dr. Weber show me before-and-after photos of patients who have had the procedure?

Dr. Weber shows patients before-and-after photos during their initial consultation. He carefully chooses photos from his large collection so patients can know what their results will look like. Before-and-after photos are a wonderful resource for patients to use to help them make their treatment decision.

How do I know if the procedure is right for me?

Patients who are interested in improving the appearance of their lips are encouraged to schedule an initial consultation with Dr. Weber. A thorough initial consultation provides patients with all the information they need to determine if the procedure is right for them.
