Lip Augmentation in Mexico

The Ultimate Guide to Lip Augmentation in Mexico

Always wanted fuller lips? Find out how with lip augmentations in Mexico. Covering a number of different surgical and non-surgical treatments, lip augmentation can plump, reshape, resize and lift your lips to give you a fashionable, more youthful look.

Celebrities such as Angelina Jolie have made bigger lips more desirable for women of any age but lip augmentation is particularly useful to combat signs of ageing. As collagen production decreases, the elasticity in our skin becomes looser and the force of gravity begins to take effect. Lips and skin are also subject to depleted collagen levels, which causes the skin to become thinner, resulting in a loss of shape in the lips as the skin around them sags.

Why get lip augmentation in Mexico?

There are various methods of plumping lips, both surgical and non-surgical, some permanent, some not. It is worth doing a little research to see what you are comfortable with and what end-result you want to achieve. In some cases, you may need more than one procedure to reach your desired goal. For patients traveling from North America and Canada, Mexico is the ideal destination as it is reasonably cheap and easy to reach – either driving or flying.

Mexico has long been a destination to come to for North Americans seeking discount medical supplies and it is not surprising that medical tourism has taken off here – only now people from across the world are flocking here because of the low prices, and the expertise.

People that may have been dubious about receiving medical care can now see for themselves via the internet, the array of world-class facilities available. Popular destinations, including Cancun, Mexico City and locations along the US-Mexico border have become hotspots where medical travellers can combine a vacation with their treatments, or travel over the border and back again in a day.

Of course, there are still dubious facilities around, and you would do well to make sure you choose a doctor and clinic with a good reputation. At Medical Departures, we only list those doctors and clinics we feel comfortable with, after we have done some background-checking ourselves. Real patient reviews are part of the process, but so too is confirming qualifications and professional memberships, as well as checking for legal and criminal records. Visiting the clinics is also something we feel is important, so we can see their facilities at close hand and get a feel for how they do things. Only when we are happy with all these elements do we list them.

How long does the lip augmentation procedure take and what is the recovery time?

Lip augmentation comes in a number of guises – that is to say there is more than one way to achieve a fuller look. Some options include surgery, such as lip lifts, lip implants, dermal grafts and vermillion advancement. Others are non-surgical, and include the fat transfer method (where fat is transferred via liposuction from another part of the body), and injection treatments known as fillers, such as Restylane and Juvederm.

The time the procedures take, and the recovery time varies. Surgery will obviously take an hour or two, and the recovery time will be weeks; whereas injection treatments are over in a matter of moments and will take a matter of hours to recover from.

What is the cost of lip augmentation in Mexico compared to the United States and Canada?

Prices vary on the nature of the procedure, but, for example, lip lift surgery in the United States can cost between $3 and 4,000, whereas in Mexico lip lift surgery is as little as $1,000. Non-surgical treatments, such as fillers, are much less.
