Verafill or Fulfill are the names for saline filled lip implants

Lip implants have come a long way and look so natural now and feel soft. They are placed in the lips under local anesthesia and take about 20 minutes per lip at a cost of $1500-2000 per lip.

Although Saline Lip implants like Verafill may become more popular over time, most surgeons recommend hyaluronic acid fillers like Restylane and Juvederm as the first step in lip rejuvenation. Dr. Newman in California (near San Francisco) presented his early experience with Verafill in 2008 and he may be a good resource for information on this procedure.
