What Does It Involve?

One of the signs associated with aging or smoking is the loss of volume in the lips and peri-oral wrinkling. In some cases, patients simply have thin lips and would like to improve their appearance.


For a short term solution, non-permanent fillers can be used but the cost can add up over the years. For a more permanent solution, permalip is a great alternative. It is a soft silicone implant which can be inserted through the corner of the mouth under local anaesthetic. There may be some swelling and bruising for a few days but it will all settle down within a week. Patients are asked to perform lip massage for a few weeks.


The implant can easily be removed but so far, no one has requested the removal of the implant.

After Surgery

There will be some bruising and swelling on the lips and patients are warned about drinking or eating anytime too hot as sensation is transiently reduced. The effect is similar to dental treatment with local anaesthetic. The patient can take analgesia and ice pack to reduce swelling and inflammation and most of the swelling will settle down in 7-10 days

Lip Filler Before and After



I am very satisfied as Mr Ho-Asjoe is very patient and takes the time to consider what’s best for the patient, respecting their needs, unlike other doctors I have seen. I have had a great experience and would happily refer friends and family to him.


Doctor Mark is one of the best surgeon. Can’t complain about the result, simply perfect.


Mr Mark Ho-Asjoe did my tummy tuck on the 13/4/17. Before surgery he explained the procedure and showed me pictures of surgeries he undertook. He clearly informed that i may have scarring after the operation, however I am please with the result. After the surgery Mr Mark Ho-Asjoe reassured me that if there were any problems I should contact him immediately any time of the day, which i found reassuring and alleviated any anxieties i may have had. The after care received was top notch and will definitely use him again for any future operation(s).


Mark is the consummate professional and will never entertain any unnecessary surgery. He is kind and considerate and listens. His skills are second to non and attention to detail, perfect. A wonderful experience which you can rarely say when having surgery.
