We Asked Our Doctors: What’s The Difference Between Lip Filler And A Lip Flip?

In recent years, the quest for fuller lips has become a trend in aesthetic enhancements. Whether you’re considering overlining your lips with lip liners or contemplating about injections, it’s important to understand the difference between different lip treatments and the pros and cons of each one. Keep reading to learn more about the lip treatments we offer at Cavendish Clinic to help you make an informed decision and leaving you with a fuller pout.

WHICH LIP TREATMENTS ARE AVAILABLE AT CAVENDISH CLINIC?

At Cavendish Clinic, we offer both the Lip Filler and Lip Flip treatment.

Lip Fillers

Lip Filler is an effective way to add volume and definition to the lips, with instant results. At Cavendish Clinic, our Aesthetic Doctors work with your individual features to provide subtle, natural-looking lip augmentation. We use Juvederm Ultra, Volite, Volift, Voluma & Volbella in all our Fillers.

Lip Flips

A Lip Flip is a cosmetic procedure that involves using anti-wrinkle injections (commonly known as Botox) into the muscles around the lips. Unlike lip fillers, which add volume to the lips, a Lip Flip works by relaxing the muscles around the lips, causing them to slightly roll outward. This can create the appearance of fuller upper lips and a more defined lip line without adding volume.

WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN LIP FILLERS AND LIP FLIPS?

Our Aesthetic Doctor, Dr Rosh, explains the fundamental disparity between a Lip Flip and Lip Filler. A Lip Flip involves using neuromodulators such as anti-wrinkle injections to inject into the orbicular muscle of the top lip. This relaxes the muscle, causing the top lip to flip outward, creating the illusion of increased fullness. On the other hand, Lip Fillers entail injecting hyaluronic acid dermal fillers to augment lip volume genuinely.

HOW DO YOU DECIDE BETWEEN THE TWO?

The decision between a Lip Flip and Lip Filler depends on individual preferences and their desired outcomes. Dr Rosh recommends Lip Fillers for those seeking more volume and a voluptuous appearance. Alternatively, a Lip Flip is an excellent option for individuals aiming to maintain their natural volume whilst adding subtle projection and enhancement. Combining both treatments can offer a balanced and customised result.

HOW MUCH DOES EACH TREATMENT COST?

Lip Flips are generally more affordable than Lip Fillers, involving fewer units of neuromodulators per session. At Cavendish Clinic, the Lip Flip treatment costs £150. On the other hand, prices for Lip Fillers start from £295.

PRECAUTIONS AND AFTERCARE

At Cavendish Clinic, we advise our patients to expect mild swelling, bruising, pain, and tenderness with Lip Fillers, lasting from days to weeks. Lip Flips are a faster and less painful procedure and may have little to no downtime, with results visible within one to two weeks. It is recommended to avoid alcohol, blood thinners, and fish oil before appointments to minimise the risk of bruising and refraining from manipulating the injected areas post-treatment.
