How to Get Collagen Lip Injections InformationCollagen Lip Injections have become a popular way to get plump, fuller lips. You can find lots of information about collagen lip injections in magazines, on television talk shows and of course online, but how much of it is true? I have done some research and will share with you what I have found.

Many people are unhappy with their natural lips and have tried several topical or over the counter remedies to no avail. If you are one of these people, or if you just want to know more about collagen lip injections, this article is for you. The purpose of this piece is to help you to learn more about collagen lip injections, nd/or help you decide if this procedure is for you.

STEP 1: GET THE FACTS

I have done some research about collagen lip injections and have learned these basic important details:

  • Collagen lip injections are not a permanent solution. THe results of collagen lip injections can last from 2 to 6 months. If you want to maintain your new fuller lips, you will have to return to your surgeon for touch ups, approximately 2 – 3 times per year.
  • This is an outpatient or “ambulatory” procedure. You will be able to go home the same day. Your doctor might prescribe some pain medication as you will have some swelling or bruising. This can last anywhere from 3 days to 1 week. You can count on missing 1 or 2 days of work.
  • The average cost of a collagen lip injection is approx. $333. There may be separate facility costs and surgeon costs. Please shop around and ask lots of questions about price and additional fees. Price may vary depending on how much you want done. You can have both lips done at the same time or just your top lip or bottom lip. Make sure you talk with your surgeon about pricing and procedure options.
  • STEP 2: GET YOUR DOCTOR’S ADVICE

    As with any medical procedure, you should consult your family physician before making a decision. Your family doctor knows all of your possible risk factors and other details that could be important in your decision making process. Tell your PCP what you want and when you want it done. He/she should be able to offer you sound advice and/or warnings about collagen lip injections and whether it is safe for you. There are certain medical conditions like diabetes, for instance, that can make collagen lip injections a risky decision. Please make sure you are honest and open when discussing this with your Dr.

    STEP 3: GET A CONSULTATION

     

    After seeking advice from your doctor, if you decide that getting a collagen lip injection is for you, make sure you choose a surgeon that offers consultations. There are things that your surgeon will need to know, and things you need to ask. Take in pictures and examples of what you want. Don’t be afraid to be specific. You want this surgeon to let you know if you’re asking for something that can be done. Also, collagen lip injections are made from refined bovine collagen and contain Lidocaine (a local anesthetic). Some people have allergic reactions to these and you should make sure your surgeon give you an allergy spot test to determine if you are one.

     

    I hope that I have helped you to learn more of what you need to know about Collagen Lip Injections. Please do your own research and fact finding to make sure that you are making the right decision about collagen lip injections. Take care.

    TIPS AND AFTERTHOUGHTS:

    • I have not ever had collagen or any kind of lip injection, but I suggest you talk to someone who has. One idea is to read the blog of someone who has documented their process step by step and shows before, during and after pics. This way you can gain 1st person information from the patient’s point of view.
    • This article is in no way meant to replace your doctor’s advice or your own researching efforts. I wrote this to be a part of your total information gathering, not be a sole source of information. I encourage you to look and read for yourself, so you can gather answers that suit your particular interests or concerns. Good luck on your endeavor!
