What Kinds of Lip Enhancement Procedures Are Available in Mexico City?

Lip enhancement encompasses both surgical procedures and non-surgical treatment, normally involving injectable dermal fillers.

Surgical Options:

  • Dermal grafts: Fat-grafts are taken from underneath the skin and then inserted into the lips through incisions on the inside of the mouth.
  • Implants: Typically, synthetic implants are inserted into the lips through small incisions made at the corners of the mouth.


Popular treatments include Restylane® and Juvederm® which can be used on the lips to enhance their size and shape. These are temporary, lasting a matter of months; thus, periodic top-ups are advisable.

Mexico City is also a great holiday destination. It can be a base to explore sites that are a short distance away or take you to another world and another time period. It is also home to some 40 UNESCO World Heritage sites, including some of the world's most spectacular indigenous ruins. You can also indulge in all manner of shopping, ranging from huge malls to small local shops and flea markets.

Why Book Lip Enhancement in Mexico City with Medical Departures?

Surgery always carries with it an element of risk, including possible infections, adverse reactions, or the rare complication. Thus, it pays to do your due diligence before scheduling your appointment.

We always carry out an in-depth investigation into the qualifications, credentials and background of the doctors practicing at the clinics and hospitals we list on our website. We also conduct patient interviews post-surgery to verify their satisfactory experience, satisfactory or otherwise. 

How Long Does Lip Enhancement Take and What Is the Estimated Recovery Period?

Different procedures require different times, both in terms of how long they take to carry out as well as your recovery.

  • When only fillers are used, the process can be over in half an hour.
  • Surgery with implants and grafts can take one and a half to two hours. Specialists provide different kinds of implants under varied brand names; consult with your doctor to determine which is right for you.
  • Liposuction entails a longer treatment time since fat must first be harvested from your body, then purified before use.
Regarding your recovery:
  • There is no real downtime required for fillers and you will be able to return to your normal activities after the treatment.
  • For surgery, which requires local anesthesia, you will be able to leave the clinic after you get the green light from your doctor. However, it will take at least a week to recuperate and two weeks or more for a complete recovery. 

What Is the Cost of Lip Enhancement?

In the US, you can expect to pay around USD 400 for fillers. The price can go up to USD 5,000 for surgery.

In Mexico City you can pay between USD 400 to USD 1,500, depending on the procedure.
