Lip Injections Houston

Whether it’s adding softness or volume or redefining shape and balance, lip injections are a very popular treatment in our practice. There are a wide variety of surgical and non-surgical methods available for lip enhancement today. Our preferred approach for providing beautiful results safely is to use hyaluronic acid dermal fillers. With the variety of dermal filler options today, we are able to achieve your desired outcome.

At Basu Aesthetics + Plastic Surgery, we exclusively use Allergan products. For lip injections, this typically includes JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus XC, JUVEDERM Vollure XC and/or JUVÉDERM® Volbella XC.  These are our preferred because they have a reputation for being a very smooth filler product which makes them easy to inject into softer tissues and can more confidently and comfortably achieve a natural and beautiful enhancement. They are softer to the touch and smooth in appearance, just as your lips should feel.

Dr. Basu talks about how to achieve natural-looking lips with fillers


How much do lip injections cost in Houston?

The typical price range of lip enhancement for our patients runs from $400 to $725. This range is dependent on the product selected and the amount of product used to achieve the outcome desired. The beauty of having multiple options allows us to tailor each treatment to your unique anatomy. We’re happy to share price ranges over the phone and will go over how the cost is calculated in detail prior to treatment. 

With lip injections and all the services we offer at Basu Aesthetics + Plastic Surgery, we’re committed to educating our patients about every detail before you come to the office, including the costs.

We also offer easy financing options to help make your procedure even more affordable. If you have CareCredit, you can use that as payment toward dermal filler treatments too!

How many cc’s or syringes will I need for my lips?

The amount of product you’ll need varies depending on your goals and baseline anatomy.  A slow, gradual build will give the most natural result. At the first visit, we begin with 1 ml or less. We recommend a follow up appointment 2 weeks after to evaluate adding any additional product. 

1 syringe of JUVÉDERM® = .05 ml or 1 ml. To put this into perspective, there are 15ml in 1 tablespoon. 1ml is a small amount of product but can achieve great results. 

How long does it take to get lip injections?

We typically schedule lip fillers with a 45 minute appointment, however this does vary.

Does it hurt to get lip injections?

Lip injection treatments don’t hurt at Basu Aesthetics + Plastic Surgery. We want you to have a positive experience during your procedure so we provide a dental block to make this very comfortable.  In addition, the latest formulations of JUVÉDERM® fillers contain lidocaine, a local anesthetic, which allows for an even more comfortable procedure and immediate post-treatment experience. We finish by providing ice to minimize swelling.

How long does it take to recover and see the final results of lip injections?

The results of lip injections are immediate and there is no downtime associated. You can return to your normal routine immediately following your appointment, however, you should avoid strenuous activity in the first 24 to 48 hours after treatment because it will help you to avoid post-procedure bruising and swelling. Lips are vascular and soft, and it is always possible to experience some temporary swelling and bruising for a few days after the treatment. This should resolve within 1 to 2 weeks. Final results are most appreciated around 2 weeks post-treatment. 

How long will my lip injections last?

Lip enhancement results with JUVÉDERM® vary and may last an average of 9 to 18 months.

Are there any alternatives to JUVÉDERM®?

Lip enhancement can also be accomplished using fat injections. This option involves harvesting fat from another location on your body through liposuction and injecting the fat into the lips for a more voluminous appearance.
