Thank you for the question. Lip enhancement cost will depend on the product used and the area of the country. Pricing is different in Arizona, California or New York. In Tucson, the average cost per syringe is about $525-$550. Make sure you are choosing an experienced injector. Cheapest is not always best when it comes to lip enhancement or really anything for that matter.

Good day, thank you for your inquiry. There are different options for enhancing your lips. Lip lift, lip augmentation with fillers or implants, or fat injections. Temporary fillers such as Juvederm, Emervel, Perlane or Belotero are all great options. They vary in price between $650 - $850 according to product, physician experience and geographical location.A lip lift is a surgical procedure that modifies the appearance of the lips through reshaping techniques. The procedure increases the prominence of the vermillion border (the red coloured area that is adjacent to regular skin). If your vermillion border is not clearly defined, it may look like your lips are either too thin, or simply a straight line with no contours. A lip lift will rectify this situation by giving you a sharp yet aesthetically pleasing contrast between your vermillion border and the skin under your nose. Price varies between $2000-$3000Fat injections are your 3rd option. Liposuction is performed from an area on the body, processed, cleaned, and readied. It is then re-injected into your lips. It is a simple procedure with great results. Price varies between $1500 - $3000. Be sure to consult with a board certified plastic surgeon for best results.Best of Luck!

The cost of lip filler really depends on the amount in syringes as well as the type of product that is to be injected.

Options for Lip Enhancement

Lip enhancement could be achieved through a variety of procedures including:

1. Lip fillers (Resytlane/Juvederm/Restylane Silk/Belotero) - Theses are injectables that should be touched up or added to every 6-12 months. In general, these cost $600-$800 per syringe.

2. Lip Implants - These are soft silastic implants that are placed in the lip under local anesthesia, IV sedation or general anesthesia and are permanent. These cost $2000-$3000 per lip.

3. Lip Lift surgeries - These are surgeries that are performed to "lift" the lip so that more of the lip shows. There are a variety of techniques to accomplish this. These are performed under local anesthesia, IV sedation or general anesthesia. The results are permanent. The cost of this procedure varies from $5000-$7000.

4. Fat grafting - Fat from one part of the body can be removed, purified and then placed in the lip for more fullness. This procedure can be unpredictable in terms of its results, so it must be performed very conservatively. The cost of this procedure varies from $3500-$5000.

Depending on the use of adding to the fullness of the upper and/or the lower, as well as addressing the fine lines above the upper lip, the cost can range from $1000 to $1500. Of course this is just an estimate and it really depends on what you and your doctor are trying to accomplish.

Lip enhancement can involve several procedures, from lip augmentation, lip reduction and lip lifting. Lip augmentation is the commonly requested enhancement and fillers is the most common augmentation method. Price is important but quality is more important when it comes to any treatment. The fee for lip augmentation includes the consultation, photographs documentation, the filler and the follow up appointments. Depending on your area and the doctor doing the procedures the cost can vary, but usually between $500-700.

Procedures for enhancing the lips vary in prices. These will mostly be based on a number of things that will be factored in. Some of the things that are considered include the kind of product that will be used, the amount needed to achieve your desired result, geographical location, as well as your doctor’s experience. For instance, the pricing in one state will differ from that of another. Moreover, if your doctor has performed or even mastered administering a specific lip enhancement product, the price will be a little more costly. However, it is important to select a doctor who is experienced since this will ensure the success of the procedure. Having a an experienced and skilled doctor will also mean minimal after effects will be experienced. Keep in mind that trying to go for the cheapest kind without investigating the ability of your doctor or their legitimacy is not always the best. You do not want to end up with botched lips.

Lip enhancement has become a wonderful option due to modern "fillers" that have replaced the old collagen and silicone injections of the past.  That being said, lip enhancement is probably the procedure I see the most "overdone" and conveying an artificial or oddly enhanced look. The cost depends on the type of filler used for the lips and the expertise of your injector. I would advise against seeing non-doctors, nurses, or doctors without specific experience in cosmetic facial plastic surgery. Also avoid "specials" or "deals" -- this is your face we are talking about and you want your treatment to be performed safely and artistically. The cost should range from $1000-$1500 but could be more depending on what is needed. Best of luck in your search.

How much does lip augmentation cost?

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}

Lip augmentation is an extremely popular procedure as it done by a full range of patients.  I perform lip augmentation in everyone from my 20 year olds that want a little more shape and volume to their lips to my more mature patients that want to restore the volume they have lost in their lips over the years.

The cost ranges from practice to practice and on the specific filler that you use for your lip augmentation.  The fillers available range from in duration from 6 months to over a year.  Also, different fillers can be used depending on the amount of augmentation the patient desires for their lips. 

Restylane Refyne and Restylane Silk are both great products for patients that want a subtle augmentation to their lips.  The Refyne is a new product that last up to a year giving patients a lasting result.  These are great starter products as they will enhance your lips, but give you a very soft and natural appearance. 

Juvederm Ultra Plus and Restylane and the workhorse products for fillers as they have been around for years and patients tend to love them.  They last about a 6-months in the lips. 

Resylane Defyne and Juvederm Vollure both last about up to a year.  Both of these products will give patients a little more volume and fullness to their lips.  The Vollure and Defyne will also last up to a year giving patients a lasting-result they will love for their lip enhancements.

The cost for these various fillers ranges between $500 and $650 per syringe.  Typically, one syringe is sufficient for most patients.
