The Ultimate Guide to Lip Augmentation in Costa Rica

If you always wished that you had bigger lips then lip augmentation in Costa Rica will enable you to do so. And you can get this done at an affordable price when you go for a holiday in Costa Rica.

Lip augmentation is now simpler than ever before. In case you feel you are not ready to undergo surgery that will permanently alter shape and size of your lips, then you can opt for different fillers that can be used instead. These can be dermal fillers that are now increasingly popular, fat transfer or collagen that are simply injected into the lips to plump them up. This non-surgical and minimally invasive method gives instant results and, if you don’t like the way you look, you know your lips will go back to their original size and shape in some time.

In fact, most plastic surgeons now recommend that you try some fillers rather than go in for surgery, unless you have other reasons to do so. Surgery gives permanent results and can also be used to address the problem of asymmetry in the lips or if you require a lip lift.

Why consider lip augmentation in Costa Rica?

Costa Rica offers reasonably priced plastic surgery and cosmetic procedures. If cost is the major factor holding you back, then the country offers excellent medical facilities at an affordable rate. Don’t forget that you also get to have a holiday in a memorable destination at the same time, making it a two for one option.

This Central American country is easily accessible from both Canada and the U.S. though it sees hundreds of thousands of visitors from all over the globe, lured by its eco and adventure tourism, its biodiversity, its moderate climate and its natural attractions. It is no wonder that the country has developed into a medical tourism hub as well, considering that a large percentage of people in the U.S. do not have any medical insurance. As most of the doctors have done at least some of their training in western countries, you should have no worries about their qualifications or skills. Besides, the people speak English and Spanish.

In Costa Rica you can indulge in the kind of holiday interests you have, whether is relaxing at a beach resort or checking out the vast natural parks and forest reserves in this country or even going to a wellness retreat. There are three UNESCO world heritage parks like Isla del Coco National Park (on an island), Area de Conservación Guanacaste and La Amistad International Park. There are many other parks as well. With more than 300 beaches to choose from you are spoilt for choice and you can select the beach according to the marine life that you can see there or the water sports or its accessibility to any major city.

If you would like to see some amazing volcanoes, then there is no better place than Costa Rica with numerous active and dormant volcanoes, situated in large recreation areas and parks that offer all kinds of sporting activities.

How long does lip augmentation take and what is the approximate downtime?

The time taken for the lip augmentation will depend on the procedure. Minimally invasive procedures like fillers (Radiesse, Juvederm, Resytlane) will take hardly half an hour to do. If you opt for fat transfer, it will take a little longer as small amounts of fat are harvested, then refined and injected.

For surgery, again the time taken will depend on the procedure and can range from 60 to 90 minutes. You may have vermilion advancement, lip lift or implants. These are usually done under local anesthesia.

You will have some activity restriction if you have surgery and till the stitches are removed, which can take between five and ten days. After injectable fillers, you just need to take care for one or two days or follow medical advice, depending on the filler used.

What is the cost of lip augmentation?

Lip augmentation in the U.S. costs average at US$2,900 (CAD 3,907, £2,322, €2,619AUD 3,800, NZD 3,985). In comparison, the prices in Costa Rica will be a lot less.
