Can I Get Permalip Implants If I Smoke?

Q: Dr. Eppley, “Good morning doctor, I have some questions about Permalip, is smoking a problem? the lips remain hard? thank you”

A: I am not aware that smoking increases any risks from lip implant surgery. The lips will soften as they heal after implant placement. One may be able to feel the implant but it is not because it remains hard.
