Is there a lip augmentation procedure that is permanent, submitted image.

I have a friend that filled her lips with collagen but it seems to be a very costly procedure and the results do not last too long. She keeps revisiting for more injections every couple of month or so. I would like to augment my lips but I do not want to make a habit of it. Is there a procedure that makes lip augmentation permanent or at least last longer?

There are several lip augmentation procedures that are permanent from lip implants, to fat or dermal/fat grafts to silicon each has its positive and negative.  So go on some. Insults and become informed what might work best for you after an examination

Hi Lisanessy:


Fat injections can be permanent.  Frequently, the procedure needs to be done 2-3 time to get the permanent result.  I think that has to do with a layering effect of the fat.  I typically charge $1500 plus $300 for operating room fee for the first injection.  For each subsequent injection, I lower the fee to $300 so the total cost is much less than doing repeat temporary injectables.
