What is a Botox Lip Flip?

What’s a Botox “lip flip” and how does it work?

Botox lip flip is a popular treatment to give your lips more fullness without altering their natural shape. This procedure utilizes small amounts of Botox to relax specific areas of the orbicularis oris muscle.

The procedure takes only 10 minutes and is quick, painless and secure. However, only have it done by a board-certified cosmetic surgeon or nurse injector in Huntington Beach with extensive experience in this area.

How it Works?

It is a minimally invasive cosmetic technique that creates the appearance of a fuller, poutier upper lip without traditional dermal fillers. Here’s how it works:

  • Muscle Relaxation: A few tiny Botox injections are strategically placed in the muscle that encircles your mouth (orbicularis oris), causing it to slightly relax.
  • Lip “Flip”: This relaxation allows the upper lip to gently curl slightly upwards, giving the illusion of a fuller and more defined appearance.
  • Subtle, Natural Results: A Botox lip flip focuses on a subtle enhancement, unlike the volume boost achieved with lip fillers.

Benefits of a Botox Lip Flip:

  • Quick and Convenient: The procedure takes minutes and involves minimal discomfort.
  • No Downtime: You can resume normal activities immediately.
  • Natural-Looking: Creates a subtle yet noticeable enhancement.
  • Corrects Gummy Smile: It can also reduce the appearance of a gummy smile.

Can I get a lip flip while pregnant?

Expectant mothers often worry about receiving cosmetic treatments like Botox or dermal fillers during their pregnancy. Unfortunately, the FDA has yet to give approval for these procedures, and dermatologists advise against them until after delivery and when you stop breastfeeding.

Although more research needs to done to confirm if it is safe for pregnant women to get a lip flip, it recommended that you wait until after delivery and after breastfeeding has completed. In the meantime, non-invasive cosmetic treatments like a lip flip can give you added confidence and make you feel better about yourself physically.
