"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
"The BEST people work here! I initially was planning to see Dr. Dauwe for buccal removal but when he spoke with me he suggested filler instead. I can’t say enough times how thankful I am for that honest opinion, he could’ve taken my money (let’s be honest most would) but instead I got jawline, cheek and under eye filler with Tess and she did absolutely incredible! Everyone in the office is so kind and I’m so happy Dr. Dauwe pointed me in the right direction rather than going through with a procedure that he didn’t think would align with the results I wanted. I’m beyond grateful I chose to come to this office and love my results. Every single person is so warm and welcoming and they’re doing business the right way. I could not recommend Dr. Dauwe and the entire staff enough."- S.A. / Google / Sep 02, 2022
"My skin was so bad I sometimes did not want to leave my house. I had fine lines, wrinkles, dark spots and no glow. I was ready to give up and felt there was nothing I could do UNTIL I met with Kylie! She recommended a Halo treatment stating it would really help. Although I was hesitant as to the results, I went ahead with the procedure. After just two weeks the change in my skin is absolutely amazing.. My fine lines and wrinkles are so much better and my dark spots have basically disappeared. Not only do I have a glow to my skin but now I am happy to get out and about. Kylie is so knowledgeable, kind and patient. She can answer any questions you may have whether it be a procedure or any type of skin care. When meeting with her you can truly tell that this is her passion. The skin regime she recommended to me is perfect. My skin will continue to improve over the next several months and I can’t tell you how pleased I am and thankful for Kylie. I 100% recommend Kylie."- S.P. / Google / Aug 19, 2022
"Dr Dauwe from start to finish made me feel so confident throughout the whole process. He really listens and hears what your concerns are. He was humble and kind. It’s tough figuring out who to really trust and I trust his work wholeheartedly. His staff couldn’t be more caring and help answer any questions big or small. So thankful for him and his team!!"- A.W. / Google / Aug 18, 2022
"Hard to really put into words the impact my surgery has had on my life, but I will say that Dr. Dauwe and his whole staff has made this experience what I would call life changing. Dr. Dauwe has a calm, humble, demeanor, and I had been following him on IG based on a friend who mentioned he did her breast aug a few years back. When I met with his team in January they were already booked out almost 6 months for a mommy makeover. That’s a good thing! You want to find someone who is booked. Not only did I love his conservative nature and perspective in what I was looking to have done, but he spent way more time with me answering my questions than what you typically find in the healthcare space. I’ve been in healthcare working with physicians for almost 20 years, so it is saying something when a physician has no problem answering all the myriad questions you have when you are going to have a big procedure done. They also made what could be an awkward feeling, feel very normal. He has great eye contact, and his office manager Julie is great at her job and been in the industry a long time. But I have to say, what comforted and confirmed for me the most was his office staff and their friendliness, willingness to help, and their knowledge about my procedure and the process. Sara in particular is a gem of a human. I thought for my pre-op she was just being nice answering all my questions and giving me suggestions, and then when I saw her for my post op I realized: MAN! She’s not just a front desk person, she’s like THE pre and post op professional! I had called on day 3 after my surgery and she was amazing to work with on my meds. She was so patient both before and after my surgery – and it makes you feel like you are their only patient, though it looks to be a busy practice, you don’t feel that way. It’s not a mill, this is not the kind of place that doesn’t care for you and want to answer all your questions. They are truly genuine, I really felt that from Sara, Julie, Bre, and Dr. Dauwe. I haven’t seen Tess but I’m sure I will at some point, I’ve heard great things. This is a rock star team and if you’re on the fence or haven’t scheduled a consult and really walked out feeling very confident in the team – come and get one here – he will tell you his professional opinion. I have another colleague who came here before me and had a consult and he honestly told her to wait until a certain time – so he’s not doing this for volume – he really wants to do the right thing for you. But truly Sara is awesome and I can’t say enough good things about her – you are in good hands with this practice. Thank you, Dr. Dauwe and team."- H.S. / Google / Aug 11, 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.
