Lip Flip

Lip Flip with Neutromodulators (Botox, Xeomin, Dysport, Daxxify)

Lip Flip with Botox is a cosmetic procedure that involves using Botox injections to enhance the appearance of the lips. This is a popular procedure to achieve a plumper and more defined pout. It is an effective way to subtly enhance the aesthetics of your upper lip at the center and the corners of the mouth to create the illusion of plumper lips.

How does it Lip Flip work?

Lip Flip with Botox is a non-surgical treatment that works by injecting Botox into the muscles around the mouth causing them to relax, which makes the lips appear fuller and more well-defined.  It also reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth. It can also treat a gummy smile by relaxing the muscles that elevate the lips so that less of your gums are visible. Lip Flip also permits more of your upper lip to be exposed when you smile.

What is the Lip Flip procedure?

The Lip Flip with Botox procedure is performed by Dr. Sheila Farhang. Before the procedure, Dr. Farhang will examine your lips and your smile and discuss the procedure, risks and benefits with you.

During the procedure, she will clean your lips and use a small needle to inject Botox into the muscles surrounding the lips. The injections are strategically placed in order to achieve the desired results, such as reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth and enhancing the appearance of lip volume.

The procedure itself is generally quick and relatively painless, with most patients experiencing only mild discomfort. Dr. Farhang may use a numbing cream or local anesthesia to minimize any discomfort during the procedure.

What are the benefits of this procedure?

A key benefit of Lip Flip with Botox is that it can produce noticeable results without the need for surgery or downtime. Patients can typically resume their normal activities immediately after the procedure, and the effects of the treatment can last for several months. Another benefit is that it is more affordable than lip filler.

When are results visible?

Patients can typically see the results of Lip Flip with Botox within a few days of the procedure, with full results becoming visible within a week or two. The effects of the treatment can last for three to four months, with most patients requiring touch-up treatments every three to six months in order to maintain the desired results.

What are the risks and side effects?

As with any cosmetic procedure, there are potential risks and side effects associated with Lip Flip with Botox. These can include:

  • Bruising or swelling around the treated area
  • Temporary numbness

Dr. Farhang will discuss the risks and side effects with you so you can make an informed decision about whether to undergo the procedure.

Are there any other options for fuller lips?

While Lip Flip with Botox can be an effective solution for those looking to enhance the appearance of their lips, there are also other options available. Some of these alternatives include:

  • Dermal fillers: Like Botox, dermal fillers can be used to enhance the volume of the lips. However, unlike Botox, dermal fillers work by injecting a substance such as hyaluronic acid into the lips in order to plump them up. The effects of dermal fillers can last for several months to a year.
  • Lip lift surgery: Lip lift surgery is a surgical procedure that involves removing a small amount of skin from the upper lip in order to lift and enhance the appearance of the lips. The results of lip lift surgery are generally long-lasting, but the procedure does require some downtime and recovery.

Lip Flip with Botox may be a good option for those looking for a non-surgical and minimally invasive solution for enhancing the appearance of their lips. Importantly, the best results are achieved by an expert injector like Dr. Farhang who has an artist’s eye and the training and experience to provide you with customized aesthetic enhancements.
