Lip Flip Vs. Filler. How To Choose Which Is Best For You
Until fairly recently, injectable fillers and cosmetic surgery were the only reliable options for achieving fuller lips. In some cases, however, patients prefer a less permanent solution for plumping their pout. For these men and women, the Lip Flip offers a unique alternative to lip augmentation and fillers. At Johnson Family Medical, board-certified family nurse practitioner Katherine Johnson can help you get the full, sexy, natural look you want with a Lip Flip in Frisco, TX. Read on for more information about this exciting treatment, including whether a Lip Flip or lip fillers may be right for you.
What is the best way to get fuller lips?
If you have ever looked in the mirror or taken a selfie, and wished that you had bigger lips, you are not alone. Thanks in part to celebrities and social media influencers, a full pout is one of the hottest and most in-demand trends today, with countless men and women turning to cosmetic surgery and/or filler injections to get the look for themselves. Another option, the Lip Flip, is gaining popularity.
What is a Lip Flip?
The Lip Flip is an innovative solution for creating the appearance of a fuller top lip through the use of injectable neurotoxins, such as BOTOX. The neurotoxin works to temporarily paralyze the muscle, which ultimately causes the lip to relax and sit in a lower position, giving it a fuller shape.
What to expect during a Lip Flip
During a Lip Flip in Frisco, which can be completed in our office in a matter of minutes, our experienced aesthetic injector will first discuss your goals to determine whether a Lip Flip is right for you. If so, you may be asked to smile and make other facial expressions so that the injection sites can be appropriately marked. Finally, injections will be strategically administered above the upper lip and/or in the corners of the mouth. After about 7 –10 days, the effects of the injectable neurotoxin will kick in, and patients will be able to enjoy their newly enhanced look.
Should I get a Lip Flip or fillers?
Choosing between a Lip Flip and lip fillers can understandably be difficult, but our team can help you better understand which option may be most appropriate for you. Based on your specific concerns, your goals, your budget, and other factors, you may be better suited to lip fillers vs. a Lip Flip, or vice-versa.
