How long does lip enhancement take and what is the estimated downtime?

If lip enhancement is done with the use of fillers, the time taken is minimal and you can be good to go in about half an hour. Fillers only comprise injections that a skilled doctor puts into the areas that need to be enhanced. If you have surgery, then it may take up to an hour, again depending on the procedure. This is done under local anesthetic and you may require stitches if implants are used or you also get a lip lift done at the same time.

Fillers can be of different kinds and may be hyaluronic acid based or others. Or you may get injections of collagen or even fat transfer. In the case of fillers of any kind, you will need the product topped up at intervals. Surgery gives relatively permanent results.

While you really don’t require any recovery period after fillers, though you would follow medical advice, after surgery you should take care for a week.

What is the cost of lip enhancement?

In the U.S. lip enhancement will cost an average of US$2,900 (CAD 3.907, £2,322, €2,619, AUD 3,800, NZD 3,985). You will pay significantly less in Costa Rica.
