UltraSoft lip implants are the
next-generation version of SoftForm lip implants. The manufacturer claims that
Ultrasoft implants are three times softer than SoftForm lip implants. The
implants are flexible and very soft hollow tubes. As your skin heals it will
actually grow inside the implant which keeps the implant in place. UltraSoft
implants are made by Tissue Technologies, Inc. San Francisco, California and
were FDA Approved in 1991.
UltraSoft Implants are used under
your skin to plump and define soft tissue. The soft implants can be used to
create fuller lips with greater definition. They can also be used underneath
nasolabial folds to create a more youthful appearance. Your skin will look
smoother and your face will look younger. UltraSoft Implants can also be used in
conjunction with other facial rejuvenation procedures.
The procedure can be completed
either under local anesthesia (two small injections of lidocaine)
or with intravenous sedation and or a nerve block. Typical lip implants take 30
minutes per lip. Incisions are made in the inside of the corner of the mouth.
These incisions are hidden during the healing process, after which they become
invisible. Sutures are used to close the small incisions, and are removed at
approximately five to seven days.
