Am I a Candidate for a Lip Flip?

The best candidates for a lip flip can include anyone who wants to enhance the overall appearance of their smile and achieve a fuller look to their lips without plastic surgery. A lip flip can reduce the "over-expression" when some people smile which exposes too much teeth and gums. It can also give a fuller lip appearance when the mouth is closed and at rest. This makes it an ideal solution for people with a "gummy" smile, lips that curl under, or thin lips. During your consultation at Phillip Dauwe, M.D. Plastic Surgery, Dr. Dauwe and his team will examine you, review any relevant medical history, and listen to your aesthetic goals to ensure you're a great candidate for a quick, easy, and effective lip flip treatment.

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.
