Lip Augmentation: Lip Filler & Lip Flip

In order to increase the size and shape of the lips, a filler material is injected into the lips during the common cosmetic treatment known as lip fillers. A treatment alternative to lip filler is a procedure called a ‘lip flip’. It is a cosmetic treatment that improves the appearance of the upper lip with Botox injections. A tiny amount of Botox is strategically placed to relax the muscles around the upper lip, allowing the lip to flip outward. The minimally invasive procedure can improve the lips’ appearance in a modest but visible way. For those who desire to improve the look of their lips, lip filler or a lip flip might be a convenient and efficient treatment choice.

    Lip augmentation: Lip Filler & Lip Flip – Frequently Asked Questions

    Lip augmentation is a cosmetic procedure designed to enhance the appearance of the lips. There are two primary methods for achieving this: lip filler injections and the lip flip technique.

    Lip filler involves injecting a dermal filler into the lips to add volume and improve their shape. This is typically done using hyaluronic acid fillers, which are safe and effective for most individuals.

    The lip flip technique involves injecting a small amount of neurotoxin, such as Botox or Dysport, into the muscles around the mouth. This relaxes the muscles and causes the upper lip to roll slightly outward, creating the appearance of fuller lips.

    The choice between lip filler and the lip flip technique will depend on a variety of factors, including the patient's desired outcome, their budget, and any pre-existing medical conditions or allergies.

    The duration of lip augmentation results will depend on the technique used and the individual patient. Lip filler typically lasts between six months and one year, while the effects of the lip flip technique may last for several months.

    Both lip filler and the lip flip technique are considered safe when performed by a qualified and experienced dermatologist. However, there are some potential risks and side effects that should be discussed with your dermatologist prior to treatment.

    The recovery time for lip augmentation will depend on the specific technique used and the individual patient. In general, there may be some swelling, bruising, or tenderness around the injection site for several days following treatment. Patients should avoid excessive sun exposure and strenuous exercise during the recovery period.
