Lip surgery is done when there is a desire for more fullness in one or both lips. It is also done to enhance your appearance or to give you a more youthful look. It is a necessary medical treatment when there is a cleft lip or when a birthmark, accident or burn has left the lips looking abnormal or limited their functionality.
The cost for lip surgery ranges from $300 to $2,000 and more in some states. Permanent treatments are more expensive than temporary augmentations. It can be quite affordable to have lip surgery overseas, especially if you couple it with a vacation. In Turkey, a lip reduction or enlargement can cost as little as $430.
To make the lips fuller, often all that is needed is an implant. With the highest quality implants available today, your augmented lips will have a natural look and feel compared to earlier creations, which would get hard after a short period of time. After a device is threaded through the lip to create a passageway, the implant is pulled through and put in place. This procedure takes about a half an hour and can be done with local or no anesthesia. To make the lips fuller, often all that is needed is an implant.

A crooked smile can be remedied with the insertion of a tendon. However, if it is due to a simple problem of nerve damage, then a Botox implant may be all that is required. For the best outcome with cleft lip surgery, a surgeon who is in the habit of doing these surgeries, such as one who does them overseas for charity, and has done some recently is your best bet. Lip lifts are also done to shorten or lengthen the space between the upper lip and the nostrils as well as to give pleasing definition to the philtril columns and cupid's bow.
Be aware of any signs of infection. If fluids start to come from the incision site or if there is inflammation, then report it to your doctor. Full recovery takes a while. You will need a ride home after a lip surgery. There may be numbness after sutures placed on the outside of your lips have been removed. Sutures placed inside will dissolve on their own. Your lips may feel stiff for as long as three months after the surgery.
