Juvederm for lip augmenation
The price for lip augmentation varies by product used and the amount of enhancement wanted. Generally my patients prefer Juvederm with lidocaine for lip ehancement. Commonly only one syringe is required. The cost of one syringe in Toronto is $500-600/syringe.
Lip augmentation cost consideration
There is a consensus that Juvederm or Restylane is best suited for lip augmentation given the collected experience over the past several years. Typically, one syringe of Juvederm or Restylane may be needed, which typically costs between $450-$600 in most areas within U.S.
The cost of lip augmentation
I prefer Juvederm for lip augmentation. It is an ideal treatment that creates a nice smooth result. Lips respond excellent to treatment and should be done subtlely to avoid overfill. The cost of lip augmentation is relatively inexpensive since so little filler is necessary to create a nice effect. There are also many manufacturer incentives from Allergan that are being offered for patients.

Cost of lip augmentation
Today, there are several options for lip augmentation. The most inexpensive include dermal fillers that can be added to the tissues of the lip. Other options include transplanting fat to the lips and solid silicone lip implants. These other procedures are more invasive than a dermal filler but can usually be done under local anesthesia. Because of their ease of use and their reproducibility dermal fillers are the most popular option. When considering this filler, be sure to use a dermal filler that is smooth and will not cost clumping or other unattractive results. In our practice, Juvederm and Restylane are the most popular fillers for this location. Juvederm and Restylane are excellent hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers that are sold by the syringe. Work with a board-certified plastic surgeon who can give you an idea of how many syringe is you may need to accomplish your aesthetic goals. A syringe of one of these fillers can range from $600-$800.
Lip augmentation price depends on the type and amount of filler used.
Lip augmentation is a very common procedure and can utilize a whole host of filler materials which each have their differences, as well as your own bodies fat and other implants. I would recommend a hyaluronic acid gel filler such as Juvederm Ultraplus which is delivered in 0.8cc syringes, and depending on the number of syringes used, the cost will vary.
Usually you could start with one syringe which may run over $700 and then add to it depending on the look you would like. These fillers are temporary and reversible, but really are the optimal product for the lips at this time.
Cost of Lip Augmentation
Injection lip augmentation can be as short-cost as a single syringe of Juvederm or several syringes of different product.
Many patients assume they will only need a filler in the lip itself, but the "lip" is really a unit of lip (pink area), the lip border, the lip corners, the philtral columns and sometimes the chin beneath and the area above the lip.
To get a proportioned, properly projected lip augmentation you should remember to take all those unit pieces into consideration. Study the frontal and side views of your own face and compare them to those of photos you see of others whose lips you admire. There will usually be far more at play than just the upper and lower lip.
An experienced lip augmentation dermatologist may suggest
- Botox to help lift lip corners and release chin bunching from muscle contraction
- Tiny injections of filler to restore the definition of the the philtral columns between the nose and Cupid's bow
- Injection in the "white roll" that will give the lip a youthful border
- Injection above the lip to help evert the upper lip (can sometimes take the place of injections IN the lip itself)
Obviously, taking the steps to fully recreate a natural and your appealing lip profile will cost more, but the results are usually far more satisfying.

Lip Augmentation can be achieved with fillers or with an implant. If you go the route of fillers like Juvederm, you can fill either the upper or lower lip, or both.Each syringe of juvaderm is approximately $550, and I generally use a full syringe for each lip.
Lip augmentation with an implant is done as a local procedure in the office. Generally the cost is $1500-$3000, but the result is permanent.
The price varies based on what is done for your lips
Lip augmentation can be approached in a number of different ways and the costs vary. A lip lift entails an incision under your nose to lift the lips higher. The average for this ranges between 1k-2.5k give or take 1k.
Plumping up your lips with restylane usually entails 1-2 syringes, which ranges between 500-1000 give or take 100-200 dollars. Fat injections in the lips depends on how much you do but typically can range between 2-3k but lasts a lot longer than restylane and can achieve results that lasts 10 years or more depending on your health, genetics, how you care for it, etc.
Lip advancements are priced like lip lifts for most doctors. This entails making incisions in your mouth and advancing some of the lip in certain areas to plump up the lips to fit your desires. But all this depends on what region you are in and the personal pricing of the physician you see.
Consulting a board certified Facial Plastic Surgeon is what I would recommend. We specialize in the face and neck and are better qualified to help you in this area.
