How much does lip augmentation cost

Are you thinking about having lip augmentation?  If so, lip augmentation is certainly an effective way to get the fuller lips you’ve always wanted.  However, one of the things you should know before having the procedure done is – How much does lip augmentation cost.

Lip augmentation

Lip augmentation is done to improve the fullness and definition of the lips.  It typically involves the use of temporary lip fillers such as Juvederm or Restylane, which are made of hyaluronic acid (HA).  HA occurs naturally in the body and attracts and retains water.  For this reason, HA is a good substance for lip augmentation.  Results of lip augmentation can be seen immediately after treatment.

How much does lip augmentation cost

Lip augmentation can cost anywhere from $500-$2,000.  The cost varies depending on the doctor administering the injections, the amount of filler used, and the region in which the practice is located.   

Since lip augmentation is a cosmetic procedure, most medical insurance plans won’t cover the cost.

Am I a good candidate for lip augmentation?

If you have naturally thin lips, or your lips have lost shape and volume as a result of aging, you may be a good candidate for lip augmentation. 

Lip augmentation is a simple in-office procedure that takes approximately 15-20 minutes to complete.  However, in order to get the best possible results, it is important to consult with a board certified plastic surgeon or dermatologist that has significant experience performing lip augmentation.
