What is the cost of permanent lip augmentation?
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 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!
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.
