Lip Implants



Typically, the lip filler procedure takes around 15-30 minutes and can be done with topical or local anesthesia.

Lip augmentation can be performed with filler or implants. Fillers are a temporary solution to provide customizable lip augmentation and can last for up to 12 months.

After the procedure, there are no activity restrictions from the lip filler and can return to your daily schedule immediately after the procedure.

For a permanent result with lip augmentation, lip implants are the best solution. Lip implants are a great option for permanent lip augmentation results. They are a soft and silicone based implant and though they last permanently, they can easily be altered or removed. They cannot be felt by others and do not affect the function of the lips.

What to Expect

The lip implant procedure is typically short and usually takes about half an hour to complete.  It is typically performed under local anesthesia, but can also be done with light sedation. The procedure is performed by making small incisions that are hidden in the lip.

After the procedure, there is typically some swelling and bruising, which usually takes about a week to go away.
