What is Lip Augmentation?
Lip augmentation is a procedure that helps increase the size of the lips. Typically done with the help of dermal fillers and injectables, lip augmentation is a minimally-invasive solution for your cosmetic concerns. The procedure is safe and effective on a wide range of individuals. For a full idea of what to expect, you may want to take a look at our lip augmentation before and after photos.
How Much Does Lip Augmentation Cost?
The cost of lip augmentation will vary, depending on the individual and the product used, but usually costs between $550 and $650. At ReNova Plastic Surgery & Medical Spa, we price our procedures on a case-by-case basis, so we can better address your concerns, and calculate your unique pricing at the time of your consultation.
In an effort to ensure our procedures are financially accessible, our practice is proud to accept a wide range of payment options, including financing through Dollar Bank and CareCredit®.
Am I a Good Candidate for Lip Augmentation?
If you want to enhance the size of your lips so they meet your aesthetic goals, you could be a good candidate for lip augmentation. However, the best way to determine your candidacy for this or any procedure is to schedule a consultation.
How is Lip Augmentation Performed?
Lip augmentation is performed in our office, during a quick and relatively painless procedure. If you’re concerned about your level of comfort, a local anesthetic can be given. We will then inject your selected product into the lips and gently massage the area to ensure proper distribution. Most injection appointments take around 30 minutes total, so you are in and out with a new look.
What is Recovery Like from Lip Augmentation?
One of the benefits of this minimally-invasive procedure is absolutely no required downtime or recovery period. You may have some redness or swelling at the injection site, but these symptoms will quickly resolve within a day or two. This means that once your appointment is over, you’re free to return to your normal activities.
How Long Will My Lip Augmentation Results Last?
The results of your lip augmentation will vary, depending on the rate at which your body absorbs the injection. Due to the fact this is a minimally invasive procedure, this is not a permanent lip augmentation. However, your results should last for several months and can easily be maintained with a follow up appointment.
