Lip flip does not involve ‘flipping’ your entire top lip, but rather enhancing it. The procedure involves injecting small amount of Botox into the muscle just above your top lip. This will relax the muscle around your mouth (orbicularis oris), which allows the top lip to gently ‘roll out’, creating the illusion of more volume.

This treatment is different from a lip filler, filler adds volume and increases the size and definition of the lips, while lip flip relaxes the muscle around the lips which slightly rolls the lip outwards, creating an illusion of bigger lips.

The lip flip is more subtle than lip filler, making it ideal for someone who isn’t looking for volume, but rather a slight poutiness to the top lip.

If you’re interested in getting a little something done to your lips but don’t want to go the fillers route, this is a great alternative.

Lip flip treatment with anti-wrinkle injections is an excellent way for patients to achieve fuller lips before committing to a long-lasting lip filler treatment. This treatment also softens the peri-oral lines (lip-stick lines) by making the muscle relaxed.

In addition to this lip flip is considerably cheaper than lip fillers and has no downtime. The procedure takes around 15-20 minutes with minimal discomfort and the effects can last approximately 3 months.
