Will A Lip Flip Make My Lips Look Bigger?

Featured Image

BOTOX is an excellent treatment for people who want to reduce problems like wrinkles and lines. But did you know that BOTOX injections can also make your lips more attractive? Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Phillip Dauwe can administer BOTOX in the muscles of the upper lip to create what is known as a “lip flip,” showing more fullness in your lips when you smile.

There are mixed opinions on whether BOTOX will actually make bigger lips. In reality, BOTOX does not add anything new to your lips like dermal fillers. It instead focuses on improving the shape and contour of your lips. This technique is becoming quite popular not only in the beauty industry but also among patients at Phillip Dauwe, M.D. Plastic Surgery.

It's worth exploring the pros and cons of cosmetic treatment before calling our office in Dallas, TX for an appointment. Read below to learn about the famous BOTOX lip flip and how it works.

How is a lip flip performed?

BOTOX (botulinum toxin) is a neurotoxin that blocks nerve impulses in small doses. This causes temporary paralysis, which reduces muscle activity or movement. While BOTOX injections are most often used for reducing fine lines around the eyes and forehead, they can also be administered in or around the lips in what is known as a lip flip.

BOTOX lip flips are becoming more well-known among beauty bloggers and red-carpet celebrities, but not many people know what they are. These treatments in Dallas, TX create the appearance of fullness, so your lips appear more “pouty.” While this look can be achieved with silicone implants, not everyone is suited for plastic surgery. Injections are far more comfortable and easier to perform.

What about dermal fillers?

Most people associate bigger lips with dermal fillers, which are made from hyaluronic acid. This is an important component in keeping our skin hydrated and healthy-looking. Dermal fillers are often injected for wrinkles and depressions in the skin as well as augmenting the lips. Even though dermal fillers can add new fullness in certain areas, they may not create the pouty lips you’re looking for. During your assessment with Dr. Dauwe, we can review your cosmetic goals and make recommendations as needed.

What happens during your lip consultation

A BOTOX consultation is a lot like a first date with a new person. You want to see if injections are worth investing in and make sure there are no surprises later on down the road. This is why a consultation with Dr. Dauwe is so essential to the process. In this appointment, we can let you know what to expect in terms of benefits, risks, and side effects. Many of our patients come in with photos of what they want to look like while describing the kind of look they want to achieve. Once we design an appropriate treatment plan, injections can be performed in about 10 – 15 minutes.
