Lips naturaly full, but want bigger. Options?

Looking at your photos, your lips are full, with good volume and fit your face well.  I would advise against making them larger.  To answer your question, our office likes to use hyaluronic acid type fillers for the lips, (i.e.; Juvederm).  Please speak with an experienced and well trained injector.  Bring photos of your desired outcome.

Cost for Lip Injections

For subtle lip augmentation, a .5 cc syringe of restylane (which is FDA approved for lip augmentation) or juvederm is possible. Fees will vary around the country but will most likely be in the range of $400 - $800.

How Much Would It Cost for Lip Injections if my Lips Are Already Naturally Full but I Want Them Bigger?

If your lips are already full but you want to add just a little more volume, you could use one syringe of Juvederm or Restylane 50% on the upper lip and 50% on the lower lip, it's sometimes better to start out conservative, you can always add more later.

Beautiful lips

Your lips have beautiful symetry and proportion. Having said that if you still desire a larger/ fuller lip, augmentation could be done with one of the hyaluronic acid based fillers (i.e. juvederm, restylane). Cost varies based on the desired fullness. A consultation with a board certified dermatologist or plastic surgeon could further clarify the cost.

Cost of filler injection into lip

You have a nice size and proportion to your lips so I'm not sure this is a good use of your money. That said, some people want more full lips and so with you I'd probably start with 1/2 of a syringe (0.5ml) and see if that is sufficient for you, I don't think you'd need a full syringe. The cost varies based on who is performing the treatment and how much is injected - since its your face, always go with the best: a dermatologist or plastic surgeon.

 Aesthetically speaking you already have ideally shaped and proportioned lips, so I would not be willing to perform Lip Augmentation on your lips.  Understanding and following the proper aesthetics of facial (and lip) beauty for the creation of a naturally, more attractive face is what you're paying a plastic and cosmetic surgeon to do.

Lip Augmentation - Cost

For the record, you have beautiful lips and I do not think they need to be further augmented. That being said, in our practice we use liquid injectable silicone for lip augmentation as it is a very fine, precise filler giving very natural appearing results. It also happens to be permanent, requiring very conservative work by experienced injectors. We charge by the area and are happy to discuss those fees in consultation.

Making bigger lips

Juvederm or Restylane are the best options for lip enhancement. I recommend only one syringe at a time to fully assess the results before deciding to add more as I would expect one syringe to be plenty for you. The typical cost of injection should be $500 to $600. I also recommend you have a filler first to see how larger lips look before deciding to do anything permanent. Please remember, your results depend upon the skill and experience of your physician injector. You can follow the video link below to see me injecting my wife’s lips with Restylane!

You have beautiful lips--why make them larger and take the risk of any problem when there is no reason to do so! Leave them alone.
