Lip Implants
in McLean, VA

Lip implant placement is a procedure that benefits patients who desire permanently fuller lips in Virginia including McLean, Falls Church, Tysons, Arlington plus the Washington DC area. It is performed by Dr. Vartan Mardirossian at the Mardirossian Facial Aesthetics fully licensed surgical suite in McLean, VA.

As they age, many women discover that their lips are no longer as full and lustrous as they once were. Many of them desire a more permanent solution than what dermal fillers can provide and visit our cosmetic surgery center for lip implants.

What are Lip Implants?

Lip implants are soft, silicone devices that are placed just inside the upper or lower lip to add fullness and smooth wrinkles. Lip implants appear very natural and conform to the shape of your lips to plump them and provide a more youthful-looking appearance. They are also very pliable and do not interfere with the normal functioning of your lips or mouth.

Lip implants are placed during a procedure known as lip augmentation. Which implant do we use? PermaLip™ is our choice of implant. Here’s why:

  • It’s soft silicone
  • They do not leak
  • They do not cause allergies
  • They are non-toxic
  • They are easy to place and remove
  • They are made entirely of silicone

What are the Benefits of Lip Implants?

Those who suffer from thin or wrinkled lips may find it difficult to disguise these issues with cosmetics. Dermal fillers tend to provide only temporary solutions, and may even cause a person’s lips to appear very unnatural. Lip implants provide a more permanent solution than dermal fillers, and may even help to ward off certain signs of aging. Since they come in a variety of sizes and shapes, they more naturally conform to your own contours, and will therefore not cause you to appear done or fake.

Patient Reviews

“I can not say enough about the wonderful experience I had with Dr Mardirossian and his staff. When I walked through the door into his beautifully decorated office, I was greeted with a warm and genuine hello. Dr Mardirossian is absolutely delightful with a kind and gentle bed side manner, he listened to all my concerns with patience and understanding. The procedure I had was a Lip Lift, which was minimally invasive and yielded great results. Dr Mardirossian is an artist and a wonderful surgeon, I couldn’t be happier, he is one of only a handful of Doctors that perform the Lip Lift surgery. I feel very blessed that I live so close to his office. I look forward to my next procedure. Thank you. Sincerely Susan Kearns.”

How is a Brow Lift Performed?

This procedure can be performed either under local anesthesia or under twilight sleep. It can often be performed in combination with other procedures, such as a facelift or a neck lift. A 1-1.5 inch incision is placed right at the upper edge of the brows, either in the hairline or in the hair itself. The brow is accessed through that incision, and is repositioned at a higher, aesthetically pleasing, and natural position. Appropriate tissue dissection, manipulation, and several deep and superficial sutures are used.

If performed correctly, there is minimal bleeding throughout the procedure. The wound is then closed with self-absorbing sutures and surgical clips. Despite being performed through a fine hidden incision, the brow lift involves manipulation of deep tissues near your eye and some important blood vessels and will be performed near the nerves that move your forehead. To avoid unnecessary risks, make sure you trust your face to an expert in the field like Dr. Mardirossian when considering this procedure.

How is a Forehead Lift Performed?

A fine incision is placed in the hairline or in the hair and extended laterally. Through that incision, the forehead is lifted together with the eyebrows and the temples and repositioned in a higher and more pleasing position. This lifts the eyebrows harmoniously with a nice arch, helping the lines of the forehead disappear, and lifting the temple and the upper cheeks. The incision is closed with fine sutures and surgical clips.

Who Should Consider Lip Implants?

You may want to consider lip implants if:

  • Your lips are naturally very thin or you have experienced volume loss due to aging
  • You desire a more permanent solution than what can be achieved through dermal fillers
  • Previous dermal filler injections have left you dissatisfied with your results
  • You desire better symmetry and balance, as lip implants can also be used to correct differences in size between the upper and lower lips
  • You have experienced trauma to the lips that has resulted in disfiguration

Before undergoing lip augmentation, please tell us if you have any serious medical conditions or are taking any medications. You should also let us know if you have any allergies to any of the materials used to make lip implants. We typically recommend PermaLip™ implants for our patients with allergies, as well as for those whose bodies have previously rejected an artificial device.
