Lip Augmentation with Restylane and Juvederm
Lip augmentation is commonly performed on patients that wish to have a fuller upper and lower lip. Although various products can be used for lip augmentation, Dr. Zoumalan feels that the safest product for lip augmentation are hyaluronic acid products such as Restylane or Juvederm. They produce an incredible result that patients are extremely happy with, well tolerated and safe, and reversible.
How many syringes do you need?
This is a fairly common question and it all depends on how you wish to have your lips augmented. I generally perform a conservative lip augmentation so that the results are subtle and natural appearing. I usually use no more than 1 syringe of a hyaluronic acid filler.
How Much Does Restylane/Juvederm Cost?
The price range per syringe is anywhere from 600-800 dollars and depends on the type of product (Restylane or Juvederm) and size of syringe.
How long does a lip augmentation last for?
The lips generally do not last as long as other parts of the body, with Restylane usually lasting less than Juvederm. After 6-12 months, the biocompatible compound is naturally absorbed into the body.
