Is there a lip augmentation procedure that is permanent?
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?
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.
