Lip Flip

Lip flip results are subtle but profound. It is the perfect pick-me-up treatment for anyone wanting a small enhancement to their lips. A lip flip is a cost-effective way to lift the upper lip, and it’s a great way to test out a fuller pout before taking the plunge with lip filler.

If you want your lips to appear fuller without actually adding volume, you can opt for a lip flip. A lip flip is a cosmetic treatment involving Botox lip injections that can give you a pouty look. It’s an ideal option if you want a more subtle result than lip fillers.

What is a Lip Flip?

We have more lip than is immediately visible. This is both good news and frustrating for anyone with a thin upper lip. What good is lip if the only thing seeing it is your teeth? This is where a lip flip comes to the rescue. By injecting a few units of a neuromodulator, like Botox or Dysport, along the border of the upper lip and Cupid’s bow, you can “flip” the lip outwards. Because the lip flips upward, more of it is visible, and you get to enjoy a fuller-looking pout.

What Can You Treat With a Lip Flip?

A lip flip can treat a thin upper lip, but it is a great enhancement for medium-to-large lips as well. A lip flip is also used in the treatment of a gummy smile. By injecting a neuromodulator into the muscle responsible for a gummy smile, which can be done during a lip flip, the muscle relaxes, and less of your gums are visible when smiling and talking.

How Long Does a Lip Flip Last?

Some patients notice a difference in as little as four to fourteen days, with results lasting between 6 to 8 weeks. We will determine the regularity with which you should receive treatment based on your results, as results vary from patient to patient.

How Many Units of Botox Do You Need for a Lip Flip?

You only need a few units of a neuromodulator, like Botox or Dysport, for a lip flip, which is why it is the cost-effective route for enhancing your pout.  Most patients require 4-8 units.

Is a Lip Flip Safe?

Yes, a lip flip is safe. Both Botox and Dysport are FDA-cleared products. If you have any concerns, our team will assess your medical history extensively during the consultation; we welcome you to ask any and all questions that you have.

Side Effects of a Lip Flip

The most important thing to remember when undergoing any cosmetic or medical procedure is to choose a skilled, licensed provider. This will ensure that you receive the highest quality product, delivered in the safest possible way. Side effects from a lip flip are rare and usually temporary, typically only involving slight bruising at the injection site. Drinking out of a straw may also be difficult after this procedure.
