What Should I Expect from Lip Injections?
Lip injections enhance your lips using dermal fillers. The fillers are administered into the skin layers with a very fine needle, and several injections are needed to carefully sculpt the lip shape and size. Your lips may feel slightly tight after the treatment, and you may also notice tenderness, swelling and bruising. After a few days, the gel settles into the skin, and you see the results of the treatment.
How Long Do the Results Last?
The results of your lip augmentation with dermal fillers may last several months or longer, and this varies by patient. Dr. Barbour will recommend a schedule of follow-up treatments to maintain the results.
How Much Do Lip Injections Cost?
Pricing for lip augmentation with fillers is based on the type of filler and the amount of enhancement. After your consultation, Dr. Barbour has the information needed to determine the cost. Barbour Plastic Surgery offers financing options for our patients.
