This causes your top lip to be lifted and it gives off the impression of a “lip flip.” Botox can make your lips look more luscious, but it is important the injector knows what they are doing. One of the most popular in procedures in Hollywood right now is called the Lip Flip which is Botox injected into the lip muscle that causes your upper lip to fold down when you smile. Many people have taken this decision to take their lips to this celebrity level as they want the beautiful results of a lip flip

What is a lip flip?

A lip flip is a cosmetic treatment that flips your lips inside A lip flip is a process whereby Botox is injected into the lip muscle that causes your upper lip to fold down when you smile. This creates the “lip flip.” The result gives your top lip an edge and will lift it up slightly so it looks like your lips are plumped, pouty and just how you want them to be! even though they have not increased in size.

How does the procedure work?

In order for the lip flip to work, you will need to see a specialist who can inject your lips with Botox properly. The specialist will give you injections into the muscle of your top lip so that when you smile it flips inside out, giving your top lip an edge and lifting it up slightly

Who should consider a lip flip?

A lip flip is for people who want fuller, plumper lips without having to undergo a painful and expensive surgical procedure. It’s also perfect for anyone who has drooping or worn dentures because it helps anchor them back in place. Also, people who tend to smile with exposed gums can benefit from a lip flip because it lifts the top lip back up in place.

The results

The result of the treatment is that your top lip will be lifted slightly and flipped inside out. This is a natural-looking, but very obvious change. It will be plumper and poutier than before.

How long does it last?

Unfortunately, a lip flip doesn’t last forever. Botox injections wears off within 6 months to 1 year after the injection. You will need to have the injections done again to ensure that your top lip remains lifted

The risks

There are many risks involved with a lip flip. For example, there is the risk of having an allergic reaction to the Botox. The Botox can also not go into the muscle and be distributed improperly. If this happens, you may end up with an uneven, deformed or drooping top lip. There is also the potential for infection (it’s not common), but it can happen if you’re not careful

The recovery

When you first wake up from a lip flip, you may notice that your top lip is slightly numb. The botox injection will wear off over the next few days and you can expect to have less and less numbness as it wears off. It’s not uncommon to experience some minor bruising on the surface of your top lip as well, but it should go away within a week or so

Also, after a lip flip procedure, it’s important to keep your top lip out of water for 24 hours. This will prevent water from going into your muscle and causing pain or discomfort

Cost of a Lip Flip

The cost for a lip flip procedure ranges between $450-1000 depending on the severity of the drooping of your top lip. The more intricate it is, the higher the price tag.

Lip flip vs dermal fillers

Both lip flips and dermal fillers lips are procedures that can be used on your lips to create different effects. A botox lip flip flips uses toxin to freeze parts of your lips inside out to give them a plumper, fuller appearance. This causes your top lip to be lifted and it gives off the impression of a “lip flip”. Although the lip has not been increased in size, it looks more prominent plus it can take up to 6 days before you see the results.

Dermal fillers use a get based HA acid are injected beneath the thin skin of the lips to ‘plump up’ and smooth out wrinkles, lines, and sagging. However one of the side effects can be an immediate lip enhancement and an over plump of the lips. The good thing about fillers is you get immediate results. In effect Both products use a similar method to achieve different results.
