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?
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.
