"Back and Better Than Ever! - What an amazing experience! I had previous implants (9 years old) and had a capsular contraction on one of them.

"Dr. Sorensen performed a breast augmentation and lift for me in January 2018. I was very apprehensive about the procedure due to the cost and all other aspects that come along with surgery. Dr. Sorensen and his staff were amazing! He was very honest, straight forward, and detailed when discussing the surgery. His staff helped me prepare so that post surgery recovery time was minimal. I will never regret my decision to move forward with this procedure. I highly recommend Dr. Sorensen and his staff."- M.J. / Google / Jul 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.
