Cost of Lip Augmentation

Cost of Lip Augmentation

Patients interested in lip enhancement are sometimes concerned about the cost. Orange County board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Joseph T. Cruise and his staff often hear from patients that the price of lip augmentation is well-worth the investment, because it pays them back in unexpected, meaningful ways. Lip augmentation is a simple, safe procedure, with highly-satisfying results, that can be easily combined with other facial rejuvenation procedures. Patients tell us that lip enhancement makes them more satisfied with their appearance; they say it makes it easy to smile.

Quality vs. Value

Understandably, price of lip augmentation can play a role in a patient’s choice of a plastic surgeon. We at Cruise Plastic Surgery strongly encourage all patients not to make the choice of a surgeon based only on the cost of the procedure – there are many other important determining factors that contribute to the value. Differences between surgeons in the training and professional experiences they have undergone can make the difference between whether they produce high-quality, or lower-quality, results. The cost of a lip enhancement offered by a plastic surgeon often reflects the quality of his results.

The best way to see the value of lip augmentation cost is to view before and after lip augmentation pictures. Browsing a surgeon’s gallery of before and after photos will give you the opportunity to see the results of people who have similar concerns to yours.  

Joseph T Cruise, MD’s Approach

Joseph T Cruise, MD uses the specialized technique of injecting hydraulic acid for some of the best lip augmentation results. He also utilizes fat transfer in some patient to improve the skin quality around the lip area.  These long-lasting results produce naturally shapely lips, which is why lip enhancement is one of the most popular procedures for patients undergoing a lower facial rejuvenation.

On average, the cost for lip augmentation ranges between $650 to $1100 depending on the amount and extent of soft tissue filler used. Since lip enhancement can conveniently be performed at the same time as other facial rejuvenation procedures, the cost may be reduced by having multiple procedures performed simultaneously. At your consultation with Joseph T Cruise, MD you will have a chance to discuss the results you are looking for, and receive a more specific estimate for your cost of lip augmentation.
