Russian lips are the result of injecting filler in the lips to increase the height of the lips and to give definition to the lip borders. This technique gives a very voluptuous look to the lips that has become very popular on social media. Close Up of Dr. Sturm

How are Russian lips different? 

Russian lips have more definition in the vermillion border (the outer lining of the lip) and are also bigger vertically versus lips that protrude more anteriorly (come out more from the face).

The Russian lip technique is a more natural way to get larger, more juicy lips, without having a lot of filler injected resulting in an over-injected look.

How long do Russian lip fillers last? 

The length of time that Russian lip fillers last varies depending on the type of filler used and how much filler is injected. The volume can last anywhere from 6 months to 18 months or more.

How much is a Russian lip flip? 

The cost of a Russian lip flip varies widely based on your injector, the type of filler that is used, and whether Botox is used as well.  The price can run from a few hundred dollars to $700, $800, or even $1,000, depending on how much you’re doing.

If you’re going from very small lips to very big lips, such as those of Kylie Jenner, the cost would be more because it would require a lot more filler and time.
