The Best Lip Flip in Dallas-Ft. Worth
The way we feel about our lips impacts our confidence, our smile, and our outlook. Southlake Plastic Surgery & Med Spa offers several lip enhancement options in DFW to restore the look of aging lips or simply add a boost of fullness for thinner lips. For fuller lips without added volume, we may recommend a lip flip performed by our expert Botox® injectors!
A Botox® lip flip in Dallas-Ft. Worth gives subtle lip enhancement and improves a “gummy” smile with just a few quick injections and a very small amount of Botox®.
How does a lip flip work?
Our injection specialist makes a few injections just above the upper lip, into the orbicularis oris muscle (the muscle surrounding the mouth). While the treatment is quick (only 10 to 20 minutes) and seems simple, it requires extensive knowledge of facial anatomy and a high level of skill.
The amount of Botox® used in a lip flip is minimal, so “over treating” with too many units can happen easily if the provider lacks the specific training and experience performing lip flips. Too much Botox® in the orbicularis oris muscle limits your ability to move your lips normally.
Botox® affects this muscle the same as any other, temporarily relaxing part of the muscle over your upper lip. When administered correctly, this lets your upper lip roll upward, appearing fuller and more defined. It can also smooth vertical lines around your lips.
Do lip flips in Dallas-Ft. Worth last long?
Of the 3 most-used lip enhancement options in DFW, lip flips last the least amount of time. Surgical lip lifts are permanent and lip augmentation with fillers typically lasts anywhere from 6 to 12 months. A lip flip, on the other hand, tends to last just 3 or 4 months. This makes it a perfect option to “test drive” lip enhancement economically before opting for more long-lasting options.
Several of our patients love the lip flip so much they’re more than happy to get touch-ups every few months instead of moving on to fillers or surgery. We do offer permanent lip augmentation in DFW as well.
