"Dr Sorensen did my tummy tuck on March 5, 2018. So happy with my results. Surgery was a breeze, just had to plan ahead for the down time. Dr. Sorensen’s work and staff are phenomenal. Felt extremely confident and comfortable at initial meeting, and always delighted to see the doc and his staff. Absolutely LOVE my results, can’t say that enough! Highly recommend Dr. Sorensen and have already referred him to friends."- D.D. / Google / May 10, 2018
"Everything about my process and procedure from start to finish was exceptional! Dr. Sorensen and the staff are friendly and professional. I felt valued by the way I was listened to and the treatment I received. Dr. Sorensen and his staff never made me wait, answered all my questions right away, and returned text/phone calls in a timely fashion. I had a breast revision after having 6 pregnancies and I was a little concerned that my breasts were not going to look as good as my first augmentation. Well I am happy to report they look amazing!! Dr. Sorensen gave me results that far exceed anything I was able to dream up before surgery. A lot of people were telling me to go out of state to get better results… well I am extremely satisfied, and I didn’t have to travel, got to stay in the comfort of my home after, and didn’t have to spend the extra money to travel. Stay here… Dr. Sorensen is the way to go!!!"- A.T. / Google / Mar 31, 2018
"I had a procedure in 1 week ago (implant removal), and after having evaluations with several other doctors, I felt very comfortable with Dr Sorensen. I was very impressed with the courtesy, professionalism, efficiency and the overall quality of providers and nurses who work with Dr Sorensen and the rest of the surgical team, but most importantly the skill of Dr Sorensen. I am pleasantly surprised with my results, one week post op and the expediency of my healing process and mild level of associated pain. I highly recommend Dr Sorensen to anyone looking for a surgeon dedicated to excellence."- A.F. / Google / Mar 13, 2018

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.
