Sticker Price of Lip Implant Surgery
Lip implant cosmetic surgery procedure can provide permanent lip augmentation with more refined results than fat transfer or dermal lip fillers, making it a good option for individuals with thin lips. Some of the common types of lip implants include GORE-TEX, SoftForm, and AlloDerm.
This procedure will be relatively more expensive than dermal filler injections. The cost of implants can vary according to the type of synthetic implants used. Furthermore, the procedure will involve the surgeon’s fee, anesthesia costs, and surgical facility expenses.
In most cases, this procedure will be performed at a surgical center or a hospital, which adds to the overall dollar figure for lip augmentation.
Dollar Amount of Lip Augmentation With Fat Transfer
Lip augmentation with fat transfer involves removing fat from one area of the body and injecting it into the lips. After the procedure, patients are left with soft, natural-feeling results that last from six months to more than a year.
This procedure involves liposuction in the donor sites to remove excess fat. This fat tissue is then purified through a centrifugal process before injecting into the lips.
The overall price tag for this treatment may be similar to that of lip implant surgery. The surgeon’s fee, anesthesia costs, and surgical facility expenses may all be quite similar. However, this treatment will not involve the monetary amount of synthetic implants.
Patients should note that in the case of lip implants, the results can be long-lasting or permanent. But in the case of fat transfer, repeat treatments may be required in the future, which will add to the costs in the long run.
Financials of Lip Augmentation with Dermal Fillers
For suitable candidates, the surgeon may recommend the use of injectable lip fillers to give the lips a plump, voluptuous look. Due to the wide variety of materials and injection techniques for lip augmentation, there are a plethora of options that can meet a patient’s individual needs.
Lip enhancement with dermal filler injections is the most affordable treatment option of all. This will avoid the costs typically associated with a surgery. The costs of general anesthesia and surgical facility expenses will be avoided because the procedure can be performed in-office without general anesthesia or sedation.
But the results with dermal fillers are only temporary and may last from about six months to a year, depending on the type of filler used. The financial stipulations can vary marginally from one patient to another, depending on the amount of filler gel used and the type of filler.
