How much will it cost to get lip implants? I have seen before and afters for this procedure and they look rather natural. I think this would be appropriate for me so I am just searching for the right doctor and prices now.

I have naturally thin lips, and I've had fillers completed. Because I loved the results that I achieved with filler but didn't like having repeated treatments, I decided on permanent lip implants. I'm absolutely thrilled with the results that I have received with implant surgery. My doctor customized the look that I wanted, and I love my full, plump lips that are designed just for my face. People are always complimenting me, but they have no idea that I have implants.

Having the silicone implants completed was sort of like having upper or lower dental work. A local anesthesia was used and, I didn't feel anything. My pain was manageable with over-the-counter pain medications. My lip implants were less than $2500 dollars, and my initial consultation was free. I recommend using only a board-certified plastic surgeon. Ask for before and after photos of previous lip implant patients. I love my results, and I believe you will be thrilled with your results as well.

I wanted to pump up the volume in my lips and I didn't want to go with dermal fillers or a fat transfer. I wanted a permanent solution. I looked at photo galleries on line of clients who chose lip implants and I really liked how they looked. I thought the results were really natural-looking and that was what I was going for. I started doing some research and calling around to plastic surgeons to get an idea of what it would cost for lip implants. I knew I couldn't count on health insurance to pay for it because lip implants are elective and a cosmetic procedure. I figured it would be an investment. In the end, I found out that I could pay as low as $1500 a lip or as high as $3000 a lip. I knew I was making an investment in myself and decided it would be worth it. My plastic surgeon performed my surgery for $3500. It was one of the best decisions I ever made. I'm really happy with my plumper lips. They look and feel great!

The first thing I did when I learned that lip enhancement injections only last for about six months was grab a calculator. With a minimum cost of $500 for each session, I realized I was going to have to spend more than one thousand dollars each year for the following fifteen or twenty years in order to keep up the full-lips look. At the same time, I was going to have to waste a lot of time and energy making and keeping doctor appointments to keep my fuller lips. Immediately, I decided that I was going to save up for a permanent lip augmentation. After some research, I surmised that this type of procedure costs between $2500 and $5000 dollars. Even though it seems like a lot, you will be saving yourself a lot of money in the long run.

I just underwent lip implant surgery and am quite pleased with my results. I always had tired, almost non-existent lips, so I shopped around to compare doctors and prices for almost a year because cosmetic surgery is a big deal. I wanted to avoid permanent asymmetrical fish lips.

What I noticed during my research is that prices vary a great deal. The average cost is around $2,400 for one lip. I found prices as low as $1,000 and as high as $7,000, which adds up to $2,000 to $14,000 to have both lips done. At one point I seriously contemplated moving to the southeast where the procedure can be done on the low end. Plus, before and after pictures were impressive.

I ended up choosing a seasoned plastic surgeon in Colorado. The price was $3,400 and am ecstatic with my results. I believe my satisfaction is because I had non-invasive and filler augmentations first. Recovery was not bad besides some bruising and swelling but that should be expected because it is plastic surgery after all. I strongly recommend trying fillers initially to see whether you feel comfortable with the new look. Fillers are much less expensive, about $500 per treatment unless you have them repeatedly over time. Lip implants are expensive, permanent procedures, so do considering all aspects of lip augmentation before you proceed.

I paid $3,000 for my permanent lip augmentation procedure. I tried injectable fillers several times before I decided to go for permanent implants. I liked the look of the fillers, but I didn't like maintaining them every six months. After meeting with several local doctors, I decided to try Permalip implants. I selected the biggest size, as I wanted a dramatic looking silicone lip implant. I had my lips done about two years ago, and I'm very happy so far! The post-op recovery process was easy, and the implants look just as good as my Restylane fillers ever did. While the initial price was more than one lip injection session, I think I'll save money in the long run!
