What is a Botox Lip Flip?￼
A Botox lip flip is a non-surgical cosmetic procedure that gives your upper lip a fuller appearance without adding volume from fillers or fat injections.
Unlike permanent lip augmentation surgery, a Botox lip flip can last anywhere from 2 to 6 months.
People who are otherwise happy with their appearance but would like fuller lips without having to commit to having invasive surgery yielding permanent results are good candidates for the Botox Lip Flip procedure.
Yes both Botox and Dysport injection relax muscles around the corners of your mouth called oral commissures and muscles along the edges of your upper lips called vermillion border. When these specific muscles are relaxed the lip appears to “flip” upward slightly for naturally plumper looking, larger lips.
As with other Dysport and Botox injections there is no significant recovery period after having the procedure to give your lips a fuller appearance. Although some people experience injection site swelling for up to a few hours after the procedure, most people feel back to normal in a couple hours.
A lip flip is temporary, lasting only a few months. However, lip fillers and implants are permanent, so if you don’t like the results there’s not much you can do about it other than have surgery again. Botulinum toxin injections can help create a softer, more youthful facial appearance in general, but Botox lip flips are a procedure growing in popularity recently because it’s a safe way to achieve fuller lips without committing to permanent lip augmentation results.
