"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

"Where do I begin? Seriously the BEST Dr and staff ever! 14 years ago I had a breast lift and augmentation at a different location. Immediately started having complications, resulting in multiple skin graphs and reconstruction. Also resulting in nerve damage. I’ve been SCARED to get this issue fixed. Until my best friends and several of their family members shared their experience with Dr Dauwe and his staff! AMAZING! So I gave them a shot, and let me tell you my experience with them and their entire staff was just as if not more amazing! Not only did they calm my fears and gave me my confidence back, you could not ask for a better staff and Doctor Who genuinely cares about your well-being and your needs. This has been some thing that has lowered my self-esteem for the past 14 years and I finally feel whole again! The surgery went perfect with Little pain and I was so worried about the healing process because of the last experience I had with another office. But so far I am doing beyond better than expected and they have been nothing but amazing! My husband and I were blown away with the surgery center and all the staff there just being over and abundantly caring not just being nice because it’s their job but genuinely caring about you! I simply cannot say enough! If you were looking for a cosmetic doctor for any reason I highly recommend Dr. Dauwe and his wonderful staff! Thank you again for giving me back my confidence!"- K.S. / Google / Apr 15, 2022

"One week post-op and feeling GREAT!! couldn't be happier!! First surgery and first time under anesthesia I was NERVOUS. I had my surgery on a Thursday and I was back to work by Monday. The pain was one of my big concerns and I only had "pain" the two days after surgery. I would say 3/10 wasn't bad at all. Consulted with 5 different doctors regarding breast augmentation. 1 made me feel horrible, 3 were ok, but Dr. Dauwe and his staff made me feel so comfortable. I had my consultation with him and immediately after, I scheduled my surgery. Dr. Dauwe not only picked the PERFECT size for me, but he really took the time to listen. He answered all my questions/concerns, and I instantly trusted him. Julie and the staff are absolutely amazing!! They are so professional and made the process so easy and smooth. I am so happy I chose Dr. Dauwe. He is so talented and his work is phenomenal. Dr. Dauwe, Julie, Sara and all the staff thank you so so much!!!"- D.C. / Google / Apr 01, 2022
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.
