"Russian lips" technique has gone global and is now serving as the go-to style for a plumper pout. Learn more about the technique and lip augmentation anatomy.

Originating from Russia, this technique has traveled all the way to West Hollywood, Los Angeles and London.

This technique is done using a bunch of tiny injections that creates a heart-shaped lip where the areas near the philtrum columns and Cupid's bow are very augmented and the rest of the lip remains almost the same. This gives a plump mid-lip pout which has become very popular on Instagram and on other social media platforms.

The lips will be shaped to lift or flip the lip, rather than add excessive volume. Also, it enhances the cupid's bow eminence, that can be really attractive.

The key difference with the Russian lip technique keeps the lips flatter from the side. Unlike traditional lip filler, an injector employing the Russian lip technique injects the product working from the inside out, rather than starting from the lip border and working inward.

This shape gives a "Russian doll" aesthetic.

Where do Russian lips come from?

Russian lips derive from the 'Russian Doll', where they form a heart shape in the center with a flatter, higher appearance. This shape gives a "Russian doll" aesthetic.


If you are interested in trying out a pair of Russian lips, it is important to note that it's preferred to have a fresh canvas to work with, meaning your previous lip fillers, if had, will need to be dissolved first, roughly two weeks in advance. This ensures that the injected volume will be solely based in the center of the lips. (Note: dissolving doesn't apply if you already have Russian lip fillers, and are touching up and/or adding to them).
