One of the latest trends in the cosmetic world, the ‘lip flip’ has quickly gained popularity, and for good reason. An alternative to filler, the lip flip is a quick and almost painless procedure that makes the top lip, or both lips, appear fuller, while retaining a natural look. As an expert injector, Dr. Roxana Barad combines her artistic and cosmetic skills to produce beautiful results for her Pittsburgh lip flip patients.
What Is a Lip Flip?
A lip flip is a minimally invasive procedure designed to give the appearance of a fuller, more voluminous lip. It can be used to enhance the shape and size of your lip, giving you an attractive pouty look without the need for fillers or implants. The procedure involves using Botox or Dysport injections in specific areas around your mouth to temporarily lift and “flip” the lip outward.
Lip Flip vs Filler - What’s the Difference?
Lip flips are a great alternative to traditional filler injections for those looking to minimally enhance their lips. Unlike fillers, lip flips don’t require any type of implant or filler injection into the lips themselves, rather, a small amount of Botox or Dysport is injected into the muscles around the mouth, making for a less painful procedure. Additionally, because no material is injected directly into your lips with this procedure, there is less risk of complications such as bruising, infection or allergic reactions compared to other types of lip enhancement techniques.
Is a Botox or Dysport Lip Flip Right for Me?
The ideal lip flip candidate is someone who is looking for a slightly fuller look while remaining very natural and subtle. For those opting for a more dramatic look, fillers will be the appropriate treatment. During your consultation, Dr. Barad will discuss your aesthetic goals and expectations, before recommending the right procedure for you.
An added advantage to the lip flip is control of unwanted vertical creases around the mouth which some people notice while talking or animating their mouth.
How Long Does a Botox or Dysport Lip Flip Last and When Will I See Results?
Like other Botox or Dysport treatments, you’ll begin to see results one to three days after treatment. Generally a lip flip lasts one to two months. Ongoing treatment is recommended to maintain the appearance. Overall, results may not be as dramatic as a filler treatment, but can be perfect for those wanting a more subtle fuller lip or want a bit more pout for a special event.
