What is the Lip Flip?

The lip flip is a minimally invasive, non-surgical cosmetic technique that uses Botox injections near the upper lip in order to produce a subtly fuller and more aesthetically pleasing appearance.

This procedure relaxes muscles in the upper lip through the effects of the neuromodulator botulism toxin, causing it to curve or "flip" upward gently. The subtle transformation creates a more defined cupid's bow and provides a slightly plumper, more full lip look. This approach is cost-effective, avoids the need for fillers, and requires only a modest amount of Botox.

What can a Lip Flip do for me?

A lip flip procedure stands out as a quick, non-surgical, and minimally invasive treatment that is both easy to administer and comfortable. Opting for a lip flip is an excellent choice for those seeking a simple, subtle way to rejuvenate their lip appearance and gain:

  • Youthful and fuller lips
  • Enhanced facial harmony
  • Immediate and long-lasting results
  • Minimal downtime
  • Enhanced confidence

Lip Fip vs. Lip Fillers

The primary benefit of a lip flip is that it provides a subtle and natural enhancement to the lips. It imparts a more pronounced cupid's bow without adding volume to the lips themselves. While lip filler can offer more dramatic results, it does come with significant swelling and can result in an overfilled appearance for some.

Additional Lip Rejuvenation Options

For enhanced results, there are a number of procedures that, performed in combination, can bring about excellent lip rejuvenation.

  • Chemical peels can address pigmentation issues, smooth the texture of the skin, and help bring a refreshed tone via exfoliation
  • Neuromodulators can be used to smooth fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth
  • Dermal fillers can plump up and add volume to the lips
  • Lip Lift is a simple surgical procedure that adds permanent lift to the lips

Lip Rejuvenation can significantly enhance the lips and make the face appear younger as a result.

Am I a candidate for a Lip Flip?

Ideal candidates are individuals seeking a more defined and striking lip appearance without surgery. This procedure is particularly well-suited for those interested in exploring various aesthetic options, as it offers temporary results. Those who have had serious reactions to botulinum toxin type A or other neuromodulators in the past are not good candidates for this procedure. If you'd like to find out if you'd make a good candidate for our Botox lip flip Boston injectables experts at Clareo Plastic Surgery can address that and any other questions you have during a consultation.

A complete treatment usually takes about 30 minutes and is a quick and simple procedure. During treatment, your skilled injector will inject a small quantity of Botox into the upper lip area. You might experience a brief and mild sensation of pressure or mild discomfort during the injection.

Results, Recovery, and Aftercare

After the procedure, initial results should appear within a few days, but it may take up to two weeks to see the full effect. Most patients can resume their regular activities immediately after the treatment with no downtime. Lip flip results typically last up to two to three months.

Lip Flip FAQs

Lip flips are considered minimally painful by most patients, and typically, only mild discomfort is experienced.

This treatment is considered a safe alternative to lip augmentation surgery, but possible risks include redness or irritation at the injection site, along with the very rare but serious risk of allergic reaction.

For most patients, results last about two to three months.

Because the upper lip is more relaxed, a lip flip treatment can help lessen the appearance of a gummy smile.

The cost of a lip flip varies depending on how many units of Botox are needed. Typically, the cost is less than other Botox treatments since it is a very small treatment area.
