Lip Augmentation

The most direct way to shape your lips and give them the pout, thickness
and size that you want is by placing dermal fillers
directly into the lips. These fillers usually last anywhere from 4-10 months.

There is definitely a trend towards using other types of dermal filler
"off-label" to achieve more structure, shaping and longer-lasting
properties. Using hyaluronic acid fillers with different types of
crosslinking will allow your lip results to last a little longer, typically
6-12 months.

About Hyaluronic Acid:

Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance found in your body. High
concentrations are found in soft connective tissues and in the fluid
surrounding your eyes. It's also in some cartilage and joint fluids, as
well as skin tissue. It is extracted and reformulated and now has become
one of the most popular kinds of injectable fillers.

More General Info:

Lip fillers are injected into the upper and lower lips. There are several
different types of lip fillers, including Juvederm, Restylane, Voluma, and
Perlane. Lip filler augmentation is an in-office procedure. During your
consultation, your doctor will assess your lips and overall facial balance.
Your doctor will take pictures of your lips to determine the symmetry and
shape of your lips. Then your doctor will determine which areas of your
lips need to be fuller and plumper.

For temporary lip augmentation, it is recommended to use Juvederm Ultra
Plus since this filler has lidocaine. Lidocaine is numbing medication.
After your doctor determines how much and where to inject the lip filler,
you are ready to proceed.

The lip filler augmentation procedure takes about fifteen to thirty minutes
to complete. Lip filler augmentation is a quick procedure that you can even
do over your lunch break. The patient can go home the day of the procedure.
The cost of the procedure ranges from $600 to $800 per syringe. Since lip
fillers only last six to eight months, lip filler augmentation is only a
semi-permanent solution.
I hope this helps.
