"I went to a few surgeons and Dr. Sorensen really listened and addressed my concerns and answered all my questions. The surgery staff at St. Luke's were really awesome. Made me feel at ease. Post surgery I was pretty concerned about every little thing and his staff Val and Harmony put up with my numerous questions of concerns and Dr. Sorensen would see me when I needed (within reason). I was not in much pain, I went back to work after two weeks! I wanted Lipo too but it wasn't recommended so I'll be saving up to get Lipo and come here again. I won't go to another surgeon."- K.G. / Google / Sep 04, 2017

Lip augmentation using an injectable filler is performed in-office and usually takes about 30 minutes. A numbing cream is generally used for injections. The lips will be sore and swollen for a few days. This subsides and the results are fuller, soft lips.
The cost for a lip lift procedure will vary, but the average cost will range between $400-$730 depending on the desired look you are going for and your anatomy.

Lip Augmentation FAQs
Implant or Filler?
The good news to this question is that there are many choices and alternatives, each one offering specific benefits to meet each patient’s goals and desires. Women who wish to have permanent results will probably be better suited to have implants or some sort of filler treatment that produces longer lasting results. Some patients may not be sure how they will feel following lip augmentation, and may want to take baby steps with their lip enhancement. Luckily, there are many procedures they will offer a fuller lip, but that won’t last forever. During your consultation, all of these techniques will be discussed so that the right decision can be made.
Is This Reversible?
Patients who do not like their lip filler can have a product called hyaluronidase injected to dissolve the filler. It’s important to make sure all swelling has subsided before making the decision. Injections will slowly absorb into the body and thus the lips will naturally become smaller when an injection is involved.
