How Much Does Lip Enhancement Cost?

Betty Boop lips

 Lip shaping can be done with surgery, implants, or fillers which of course are temporary, or fat which is more "permanent." If you are looking to simply add some volume and curve to your lips, you might consider starting with a small volume (1cc) of a hyaluronic acid such as Juvederm to plump the central portion of your lips in what I call the "Betty Boop" effect. It's sexy but subtle, and you won't look overdone.
Remember you can always get more later, but a year is a long time to walk around with "duck lips." In our area, this procedure runs ~$550.00.

Price of Lip Augmentation

The price of lip augmentation can range from $295.00 for Prevelle Silk, a hyaluronic acid based product that lasts approximately 3 months, to several thousand dollars for structural fat grafting, a permanent option for fuller lips or for adding fullness to other areas of the face.

Lip fat transfer or lip fat grafting is predictably unpredictable in terms of its results. When properly performed, lip fat grafting can provide long lasting results.

The average cost is $3000 to $4000 It can be performed under local anesthesia in our fully accredited and certified Ambulatory Surgery Center.
  3. Lip Implants - These are soft but solid silicone implants that are placed in the lip. Don’t worry, these do not leak! They are permanent, but can be removed if you don’t like it. It can be performed under local anesthesia, IV sedation or general anesthesia in our fully accredited and certified Ambulatory Surgery Center. The average cost is $2000-$3000 per lip

You get what you pay for

In cosmetics I always use this analogy:

Giving a Cosmetic Surgeon a budget is like saying to Picaso to create a masterpiece without your hands.

That said, a little filler goes a very long way for lips.  I still prefer Juvederm Ultra XC over any other product that I have worked with for lips.

Cost of Lip Enhancement

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 augmentation cost

In our practice, the cost of a filler syringe that we use in the lip varies between $600-700. More important than price, however, is the experience of the injector. I have had on many occasions to correct lip augmentations done by other injectors by either dissolving a filler agent if too much was placed or adding more to help fix asymmetry or an uneven result.
There are many techniques that can be used to help achieve an attractive, fuller and natural looking lip. Often combination techniques help tremendously. I would recommend going to a board certified plastic surgeon or a dermatologist who is well versed in the art of lip augmentation.

Lip Plumping Cost

At our office in Toronto, Canada, we charge $700 per syringe for lip injections. Keep in mind that only the facial plastic surgeon is injecting your lips for that cost and we usually recommend longer lasting lip augmentation fillers like Teosyal Kiss and Volbella to be used, so the results last longer!
