Lip augmentation is a procedure that uses synthetic, biological products or surgical restructuring to enhance the lips.
You may already have a surgeon or you might be looking at financing options first… either way, SurgeryLoans.com can help you understand your options.
The cost of lip augmentation varies significantly between surgeons, medical facilities, and regions of the country. Patients who need additional or more extensive lip surgery, such as lifts, reconstruction or special lip remodeling cases, will require more intensive and expensive treatment. Cost to factor in are: the surgeon’s fee, the anesthesiologist’s fee, the hospital charges, which includes nursing care and the operating room, the medications (antibiotics, topicals, dressings) and any additional charges.
Initial Recovery: Anesthesia
After you are awakened from your lip surgery and brought into the recovery room, a nurse will monitor your vital signs until you are released. Depending on the individual, this may take 2 hours or more. Your lips will feel quite tender and you may feel confused as the anesthesia wears off. You may experience shivering, which are usually a side effect of the medications you received, especially the vascoconstrictor epinephrine, and the cold saline that has been introduced into your system over the last few hours.
