A lip flip is a technique where an injectable neuromodulator is used near the center of your upper lip, causing the small muscles in that area to relax. This also causes the border of the upper lip to relax or "flip" up, creating the appearance of a fuller upper lip. This procedure is sometimes combined with fillers for dual lip improvement. We typically use Botox, Xeomin, or Dysport for lip flip procedures.
If you have a thin top lip or a gummy smile, revealing more of the flat surface of the lip can provide the appearance of fuller, more voluminous lips. Our Jacksonville lip flip patients enjoy:
Lip Flip vs. Lip Fillers
Lip fillers are typically hyaluronic acid dermal fillers that are used to add volume and moisture, increase the size of the lips, and sometimes correct unevenness. If lips are overfilled, or if results are simply beyond expectations, some patients may find lip filler too extreme or uncomfortable. In contrast, a lip flip uses botulism toxin injectables such as Botox (onabotulinumtoxinA), Dysport (abobotulinumtoxinA), or Xeomin (incobotulinumtoxinA) to achieve a refined, natural result.
Ideal candidates for a Jacksonville lip flip are those who feel they have a thin upper lip and want subtle lip enhancement without using fillers or surgery. Patients should be in generally good health and not have had any past adverse reactions to botulinum toxin type A neuromodulator injectables.
During a consultation, we will discuss your relevant cosmetic treatment history, talk about your aesthetic goals, and perform a brief examination. Our primary goal is to provide each patient with a custom-tailored, comprehensive treatment plan to ensure that your particular needs are met. To prepare for your lip lift treatment, you should avoid blood thinning medications, including ibuprofen, for about 48 hours. You should also avoid smoking, alcohol, and certain vitamins for several days. Your practitioner will provide fully detailed instructions for preparation prior to your Jacksonville lip flip appointment.
At your appointment, we will make sure your skin is cleansed and prepared. We will also use topical numbing cream if needed. Then, your expert injector will delicately administer the neuromodulator into your upper lip area to achieve the flipped appearance. The entire procedure usually only takes about 15 to 20 minutes.
There is no downtime required after the lip flip treatment, and most patients return to their regular activities immediately. After about one week, you should see optimal results and a fuller-looking pout. Typically, results last three to six months, depending on the type of neurotoxin used.

A lip flip is not considered painful, and most patients only feel a small pinch from the needle.
While a lip flip is very safe when performed by a skilled professional, rare risks with injectable neuromodulators can include allergic reactions, bleeding, and infection.
Typically lip flips last about two to three months in most patients.
This completely depends on the aesthetic preferences of each patient since these are different procedures with different goals.
The cost of a lip flip will depend on which product is used and how much is needed to achieve end goals.
