How much does a lip augmentation cost?

I know that there are different types of lip augmentations. I was debating between fillers and lip implants. What is the difference of prices between these two options?

When I was considering the idea of getting a lip fillers, one of the things that worried me the most was the cost. I had heard it was an incredibly expensive procedure, and I imagined that it did not last very long. To be honest, I was cringing at the idea of having to pay thousands of dollar several times a year. After doing some research, however, I was relieved to find out that the cost of temporary fillers can vary quite a lot depending on where it's done (and by who). As a matter of fact, the procedure can cost anything between $500 and $2000. I also found out that they last up to six months, which is not remotely as short of a duration as I thought it would be. Needless to say, knowing this encouraged me to finally get the procedure done.

I paid $800 for lip injections, and I'm very pleased with the results. I wanted a natural look, so my doctor recommended Restylane Silk, which is known for producing subtle results. For $800, I got two syringes worth of Restylane. The doctor injected about 75% of the first syringe into my top lip, and then the rest of the Restylane into my bottom lip. Other fillers may be less expensive, but I feel like I got my money's worth—it's been two months since my appointment, and my lips are still plump! I'm definitely going to go back for a second appointment because I love having fuller lips.

I'm thrilled with the results that I received with my lip augmentation with hyaluronic acid fillers. My lips are full and plump, but they still look natural. During my lip consultation, it was explained to me that several products could be used. The price of the treatment is dependent on the amount of filler that is used and on the name brand selected. Juvederm Volbella and Restylane are both options for adding fullness to your lips. I chose to have a Juvederm Volbella treatment completed because of the many fantastic reviews. Plus, it could be customized uniquely for my lips.

I also had some lines around my lips from smoking, and my doctor was able to use the same filler to fill in the lines and to plump and add volume to my lips. Because I had this extra work done, more filler was needed. The average cost of lip augmentation is between $500 and $2,000 dollars and between $500 and $800 dollars per syringe. My treatment cost me $2500 dollars, and my maintenance treatments will cost less. Best of luck and I hope you love your lips as much as I do. My non-surgical procedure was worth every penny. Besides having a bit of bruising and swelling for a couple days, I ended up with natural, fuller lips.

I've been getting lip fillers, or injections, for 2 years now. I get Restylane two to three times a year, and it costs between $500 and $550 per session. There are more expensive brands, like Juvederm Ultra Plus, which can be on the high end of $750. The price slightly changes, depending on the amount of hyaluronic acid that is used at each session. The cost can add up over time and end up costing way more than implants because you're repeatedly spending $500 to $750 to keep up the lip enhancement. Implants can range from $1,500 and $5,000. I probably will continue to have the fillers because it yields natural results, and I don't have to worry about permanent unnatural looking lips.

The research I did and talking with many of my friends who have lip implants led me to stick with fillers for a few reasons. To be honest, although the new solid silicone is said to be safer than the kind that would leak, I never liked the idea of invasive plastic surgery. Also, some of my friends have ""trout pout"" while others do look natural with implants. So as long as I am financially able, I will continue to get hyaluronic acid fillers. 

I knew that I wanted plumper lips so I could really pucker up. I felt like my lips were disappearing! I went back and forth between dermal fillers and lip implants. Lip implants can get really pricey. I wasn't ready to pay up to $6000 for both lips, especially if I wasn't sure if I would be happy with my results. I was also a little worried about the pain from an invasive procedure. I decided to go with fillers because the results are temporary and it costs less. It can run up to $800 a syringe and you might need two syringes if you are getting both done. I had both lips done and it cost me $1000. Compare costs when you talk to plastic surgeons in your area to figure out who will be the most affordable. Think about whether you want permanent results too. It will cost you more to get the implants, but they will last.
