Lip Fillers vs. Lip Flip

Lip Injections Dallas Texas

Many of our patients want fuller lips without completely diving in. OMNI SCULPT MD Medical Spa team is happy to offer a lip flip for those patients that want a fuller top lip without a significant volume increase. Lip fillers are one of our most popular types of dermal fillers that work by increasing the volume of your lips with a hyaluronic acid gel filler. The main difference between lip flips and lip fillers is the amount of plumpness for your pout. OMNI SCULPT MD Medical Spa in Dallas is the area’s premier anti-aging and skincare medical spa. We work with you to customize solutions that meet your specific goals. We’ll explain the differences between a lip flip and lip fillers and help you find the best solution for you.

What is a Lip Flip?

A lip flip gives you nice, plump lips using neuromodulators like Botox. We inject a neurotoxin into the upper lip, center of the top lip, and the corners of your mouth. The idea behind a lip flip is that Botox allows the lip to relax and perform a “flip” upwards. This flip creates an appearance of a fuller upper lip without dermal fillers or surgery. 

What is Lip Filler?

Lip filler gives you a voluminous pout using dermal fillers. We inject dermal fillers into your lips for instant volume. Lip fillers plump the skin and smooth away fine lines and wrinkles in the area. Dermal fillers are made from natural hyaluronic acid.

Lip Filler vs. Lip Flip

If you’re having trouble deciding between a lip flip and lip fillers, we’re here to help you. If you want controlled fullness and a voluminous boost, go with lip fillers. If you want a simple, natural boost without volume, go with a lip flip. Other differences include:

  • Lip fillers offer immediate results, while a lip flip may take about two weeks.
  • We can control how much lip filler we use, offering the perfect pout.
  • A lip flip provides little to no swelling.
  • More controlled fullness can be achieved with lip filler. 
  • Lip fillers can correct facial asymmetries. 
  • We can dissolve lip filler if you aren’t happy with the results.
  • Lip fillers can last up to two years, and a lip flip lasts six to eight weeks.

Can You Get a Lip Flip and Lip Filler?

We’ll consult with you if a combined lip flip and lip filler are best for your goals. If you have thin upper lips, we can also use both treatments to achieve your desired results. The lip flip is targeted more towards defining your upper lip without thinking about volume. Lip filler can be used to add volume to this definition. One thing to remember is that it takes one to two weeks for your lips to look fuller. You don’t want to combine all treatments into one without knowing you’ll love the outcome.

So, What's Best for Me?

There is no right or wrong choice between a lip flip and a lip filler. We base our decisions on your goals and your natural lips. We’ll never let you have an unnatural look. We work with you to ensure you have the perfect, natural pout. We typically recommend lip fillers when you want a boost in volume. If you’re happy with the size and shape of your lips but want subtle enhancement, we typically recommend a lip flip.
