I've gotten lip fillers twice this year and I love the way they make my lips look. I got Juvederm Ultra Plus and the results typically last like 6 to 9 months. They cost $500 for me and I think the average is anywhere from $500 to $650. I'm not going to lie.. it was pretty painful. It feels just like sharp needles going into your lips. However, the process is less than 10 minutes, so you juts suck it up. I think the results are worth it.

OP, I was talking to a girl who had her lips done and wow, were they over done, I can't believe they would do this. If you are going to do it make sure you say "natural".

I've been thinking about having this done also as too many vertical lines are now showing up. My doc told me she had it done and it was too painful for her and she won't be doing it. A few others said they'll keep it up but it is quite painful. I'm kinda torn on it.

Default Question for those that had it done

When the time runs out at 8 months or so, do you get any sagging?

No. I have them. Your body just absorbs the hyaluronic acid.

I wouldn't think they would sag but if you have wrinkles they would come back.

I have a pretty high threshold for pain and having my lips done was painful! It hurt enough that I didn't feel I had enough "return on investment" for that specific procedure, so I stopped doing it.



There's no sagging. The HA is slowly absorbed by the body and your lips return to what they were prior to the fillers.

Cost really depends upon how much you are having filled, the product that you and your doctor have selected and your doctor's reputation.

As with all fillers - it depends upon the filler and on your own metabolism. Some newer fillers can last as long as seven years. My doctor told me this, but he also said that this is not what the company advertises.

I have had fillers, and I would have to admit that at least to me, they are painful. It is also the kind of pain that I really dislike. The fillers +that I had were the older variety. Voluma and Juvederm. I did not have my lips done, I did it to enhance and give volume to my mid face, and to fill scowl lines between my eyes. This is a family problem, and I have "frown line filler" in now. It does not look fake - I just look rested.

Most of the patients who are having lip filler are younger. Late teens, 20s and early 30s.

Very full lips are popular among younger women. The Angelina Jolie lip type was not popular among Caucasian women until fairly recently. I am not a fan. I like a defined upper lip. and a proportionate lower lip. To me, bigger is not always better

I like a more refined and natural look.

Plumped lips always look enhanced to me. I have seldom seen a pail of pumped lips that look real.
