"Dr. Dauwe and his staff are like a dream team! I legit leave wanting to be friends with his staff they are all so adorable. Seriously though, any type of surgery is so scary and they make the experience so comfortable. I felt like he listened to what I wanted and was honest with what was going to be realistic with my body type. I was referred by Dr.Dauwe by a few of my clients and am so thankful I chose him to do my procedure. If you’re in the Dallas area I wouldn’t recommend anyone else. Truly grateful to have had such an amazing experience! Thank you Dr. Dauwe for everything!"- T.C. / Google / Apr 30, 2019

"I wanted to do a breast reduction for over a decade and was nervous and decided not to go through with it due to my skin keloid. A previous surgeon told me I would scar really bad afterwards. After having my son, my breast were even larger. I decided to go ahead and go through with the breast reduction knowing there was a chance of scarring. Dr. Dauwe explained to me my chance scaring, but had a oncologist doctor lined up to start radiation immediately after the procedure. Well his approach worked, no scaring and the reduction was successful. Also in the process of the breast reduction procedure he was able to do the lift and remove an unwanted tattoo. I definitely recommend him."- A.C. / Google / Nov 29, 2021

What Can I Expect During a Lip Flip?
Performed within one of our spacious treatment rooms, the entire lip flip procedure takes about 30 minutes to complete. If necessary, a topical anesthetic can be administered to allow for a more comfortable treatment. Within the actual treatment process, a wrinkle relaxer will be carefully injected into the upper lip area. In some cases, a dermal filler may also be utilized to help enhance your pout. Typically, Dallas, TX patients will notice their full results about 7 – 10 days following their treatment. These results can last for multiple months, depending on what brand of injections was utilized, and touch-up appointments can be scheduled to help you maintain your treatment outcome.
Lip Flip FAQ
How long does a lip flip last?
Typically, the results of a lip flip will last for about 2 – 3 months. At our Dallas, TX facility, our team can talk with you about when you may want to return for follow-up appointments in order to maintain your results. We can also provide the necessary aftercare instructions to ensure your results last as long as possible.
Does a lip flip change the look of your smile?
A lip flip relaxes the top lip for a fuller appearance. This allows for a subtle and natural plump to the lip, including when you smile. However, it will not change or alter the natural shape of your lips.
What is the difference between a lip flip and a lip filler?
While a lip flip procedure uses a wrinkle relaxer to relax the upper lip, lip filler uses dermal filler to add plumpness to the lips. A lip flip is performed specifically on the upper lip, but lip filler can be utilized on both the upper and lower lips. During a thorough consultation, our team will let you know if you would better benefit from a lip flip or a lip filler treatment.
