The Difference Between Lip Filler and a Lip Flip

When it comes to enhancing your lips, you have two popular options to choose from: the lip flip and lip filler. Let’s take a deeper dive into both procedures so you can decide which one is right for you.

Lip Flip

The lip flip involves using Botox to relax the muscles around your lips, which causes your upper lip to roll out and creates the illusion of a fuller, more defined pout. It is an excellent choice for those who want to enhance their lip shape without adding volume. This quick and easy procedure has little to no discomfort, and there is no downtime required. Results typically last from 4 to 6 weeks, making it a popular choice for those seeking subtle changes.

Lip Filler

On the other hand, lip filler is an injectable treatment that adds volume and definition to your lips. This option is perfect for those seeking a more dramatic change or a plumper, more youthful appearance. The procedure takes longer than the lip flip and requires some downtime, but the results last for six to twelve months.

To give you an idea of what to expect, here is an example from one of our clients at MedAesthetics who underwent both procedures. She had never had lip filler or Botox before and came in knowing she wanted a fuller lip. We suggested starting with a lip flip to flip her lip out. Two weeks later, after the Botox fully kicked in, she came back for Juvederm lip filler to add volume for a fuller lip.
