Anyone try Silicone Injections in the Lips?

I am scheduled to get silicone injections in the lips on 8/8 when I get lift and ba. Has anyone else ever tried this for perm lip enhancement?

Silicone is not an approved facial filler. I would not have this done. I would run like a bat out of hell from any PS that would do it.

I have never heard of this, have you researched it? I had Juvederm done a couple of months ago and love it. Unfortunately it only lasts up to 9mo. I have already noticed a reduction in my lips. I would prefer something that lasts longer if not permanent since it is so pricey.

I agree with Ivy. Silicone injections can cause tissue inflammation, the liquid silicone can migrate and cause lumps, the inflammation on its own can cause scar tissue build up and lumps. I would not let anyone with a silicone injection near my face, or anything on my body for that matter. Nor a plastic surgeon willing to inject liquid silicone - I would definitely not let them place implants or do any other work on me either, if they're willing to cut corners and do shady work on one thing, how about the other procedures? If you really want to get permanent lip enhancement you should look into lip implants (like gore tex for example).

I have read about this on the lip aug forums. They say you have to use a specific silicone, and it HAS to be done in the micro droplet way (I am not exactly sure what that means, but they stress it's the only way to do it). The girls that have it done say you go for about 3 rounds of .5 cc's each (they also stress to use nothing more than that between both lips I think).
It's highly debatable whether it's going to cause issues later down the road. The way it's said to work is, you get tiny, tiny drops injected evenly into your lips and then massage like crazy. Your own tissue recognizes the silicone as a foreign object and begins to "wall" it off from the body with collagen (like how our body walls off our implants with scar tissue). Of course you run HIGH risk for granulomas (spelling?) and inflammation.
Your lips get bigger not from the silicone, but from the bodys attempts at protecting you from it. When you leave the PS's from your injections, you wont see any size change at all, it's in the following months that the size comes. It's really interesting. There are a ton of women who have had this done and are happier than a pig in poop- but it still scares me to have free floating silicone in my body.
If you are dead set on getting this done, please be sure your dr is using the micro-droplet technique, and not just filling your lips up with the silicone (you will most likely be sorry if he does, and need surgery to correct it). There is a great forum all about lips augmentation, just google
Good luck!

Did you end up getting the silicone injections? I heard it's possible to have an allergic reaction from this and if that happens it will cause your lips to become really inflamed =( I really want lip injections. I was thinking about trying Radiance since it's temporary and I've heard good things about it so far. =)

What the micro-droplet technique does is prevents a bumpy lip, as you can only be injected by so much silicon at a time. You would need 2-5 treatments to achieve the look you like over a span of 4 weeks between each treatment. This way prevents getting the bumpy lip.

The silicon that is 'safe' for this procedure is called Silikon 1000. Silikon 1000 is FDA approved to use in eye surgeries, though it is not yet FDA approved for lip injections. However, it is completely legal to use for lip injections.

I know someone who has had the Silikon 1000 microdroplet technique done about 5 years ago and she looks amazing, and never has any problems or issues with her lip. Looks and feels completely natural. Just make sure you go to a well-recommended doctor!
