View Before & Afters

Lip augmentation creates fuller, plumper lips and reduces fine wrinkles around the mouth. Temporary solutions for lip augmentation are achieved through injectable fillers like collagen, Restylane®, and fat injections. For permanent lip enhancement, Dr. Athré is one of the few surgeons in the Houston area who offers the Softsil™ silastic lip implants.

How much does lip augmentation typically cost?

Lip augmentation costs anywhere from $600 to $3,000.

How long does lip augmentation last?

During lip augmentation procedures, Dr. Athre uses Softsil™ silastic lip implants, which are natural and permanent, unlike injectable fillers, which typically last only six months.

How long is the procedure?

Lip augmentation takes around 20 minutes per lip.

How long does recovery from lip augmentation take?

After the lip augmentation procedure, patients can usually get back to their day-to-day lives in a couple of days.

Permanent Lip Implants

Several types of lip implants, such as ePTFE and VeraFil, have been used in the past to permanently augment the lips. These implants are permanent, but they tend to lose volume over time and can look unnatural and hard. Dr. Athré is one of the few surgeons who uses the Softsil silastic lip implants.

These implants are soft, permanent, and very easy to place. Furthermore, they look so natural that they even beat out injectables for how natural they look and feel. The great thing about these implants is that they are permanent (injectable fillers last only about six months). For the same time as it takes to do a lip injectable procedure, you can have rejuvenated, soft, natural lips PERMANENTLY. Dr. Athré’s nurses have even opted to get these implants!

The procedure can be done in the clinic under local anesthesia or in the operating room. Surgical lip augmentation takes approximately 20 minutes per lip, and patients can return to full physical activity within 1 to 2 days.
