Cost of Lip Implants
The of cost lip implants or lip augmentation differs depending on several factors. One factor that you need to consider is the Surgeon. The surgeons’ fee depends on his/her experience, facilities, and area where he/she works and how he/she is in demand. Another factor is the type of procedure that is going to be performed, as you know, there are different types of implants. The geographic location of the physician also matters.
As what I have said, there different types of Lip Implant procedures and this can greatly affect the cost of Lip Implants. The procedure that uses collagen, alloderm, autlogen and other similar injectables ranges from $300-5000. The collagen injection can cost $350, lip augmentation procedures with Surgisil Permalip can range from $1,800-$3,000 for upper and lower lip depending on location. That is only an estimated cost so that you will have an idea what you are going to pay. You should not choose the lip augmentation technique that is cheap so that you can save money. Always go for the one that will work best with your condition.
Lip augmentation is usually done for aesthetic purposes only so they are not covered by any health insurance. Although, many surgeons today have different options for payment plans to be able to cover the cost of the surgery and also some surgeons prefer direct payments plans. There are also loans that are available by financial institutions. Cash and credit cards may also be used for the payment.
Throughout my more than 40 years in practice, many new products and trends have presented themselves. Usually I have avoided jumping on bandwagons and in retrospect most of those avoidances were wise choices. When the PermaLip procedure was presented to me in a most thoughtful and well fashioned manner, including living models to see and palpate, I immediately recognized it for what it was. It is a simple, low risk,reversible, affordable procedure that would engender a high demand amongst my patients. In fact I underestimated that demand and recognizing the universal satisfaction my patients experienced, I was motivated to have it performed on myself. I am now a new younger appearing me and (if possible) more handsome than ever. It is a great procedure!
