Lip Implants vs. Lip Fillers: Which One to Get For Perfectly Plump Lips?

Lip augmentation has been around far longer than you might think. Before it was even a trend to have pouty, plump lips like the Instagram influencers you see on your feed, people all over the world have been turning to different treatments for several years to get fuller-looking lips since it’s a huge part of what gives the face a more youthful look.

As we age, our lips start to lose volume and gradually appear thinner and dull. Fortunately, practitioners have been offering plenty of ways to plump up the lips and give it that naturally full look in just a few steps. Here are the two lip treatment options. 

 

Lip Implants

Lip implants have been proven to have long-lasting and sometimes permanent results, no longer requiring the patient to undergo any other lip treatment after a one-time surgery.

 

Is there any pain or side effects?

During the operation, local anesthetic is used to lessen the discomfort felt by the patient as silicone or fat from other parts of the body is injected into the lips.  

Although the side effects of getting lip implants only involves swelling and bruising, the downtime can last more than a week as it takes some time for the lips to deflate back to a more natural-looking state.

How much does it cost and how often should it be done?

The cost of getting lip implants may appear huge at first especially when compared to the price of fillers, but patients can save more money in the long run as this treatment only has to be done once with the promise of lasting results. Even though this might seem like a permanent fix, patients must note that implants do not remain static as we grow older, therefore some might consider to have their implants removed eventually.

 

Lip Fillers

Lip fillers or lip injections present a more feasible and temporary way to get very natural-looking full lips. Fillers are actually able to give your lips more definition, helping you achieve your ideal lip look in just ten to 15 minutes.

 

 

Is there any pain or side effects?

Modern-day injections like Juvederm can be carried out with little to no discomfort and with absolutely no downtime compared to lip implants.

How much does it cost and how often should it be done?

Since results are temporary, patients can opt to take breaks or make changes to how they want their lips to look as they grow older. Although lip fillers appear to cost you way less, you must factor in how often you would need to go through the procedure as it can add up in the long run.

 

Depending on your wants and needs, either of these methods can effectively help you get the lips you want in very quick and safe ways. All you need to do is consult with a trusted practitioner who can truly understand and help you acquire natural-looking lips that not only make you look fabulously young,  but also boost your confidence no matter your age.
