Unlock a More Youthful Smile 

As we all know, our smile is the gateway to our personality. And for those who have seen the expressiveness of their smile fade over the years, the lip flip offers a chance for revitalization. This delicate cosmetic procedure, performed by our expert plastic surgeons, can enhance the natural beauty of your lips and rejuvenate your overall appearance. By precisely administering neurotoxin injections into the muscles surrounding the upper lip, we can create a subtle yet impactful "flip," resulting in a fuller and more defined upper lip, ultimately revitalizing your smile and overall facial aesthetics.

Your Lip Flip Experience

The lip flip procedure is a meticulously tailored process designed to enhance the natural appearance of the lips and rejuvenate the overall facial aesthetics. At our practice, your personalized lip flip treatment plan will be meticulously customized to address your unique needs and aesthetic objectives. The procedure typically involves the precise administration of neurotoxin injections, such as Botox or Dysport, into the orbicularis oris muscle surrounding the upper lip. This strategic application of neurotoxins induces a controlled muscle relaxation, allowing the upper lip to gently "flip" outward, creating a fuller and more defined appearance. The strategic placement of the injections and meticulous attention to detail during the procedure are essential in achieving the desired outcome while maintaining the lips' natural beauty. Our experienced plastic surgeons perform this delicate procedure with precision and care, ensuring a comfortable and efficient experience that typically takes only a few minutes to complete in the welcoming environment of our office.

Recovery and Results

Following a lip flip, you can expect minimal downtime and discomfort. While you may experience mild swelling or bruising at the injection site, this typically subsides within a few days. Normal activities can be resumed immediately after the procedure, and full results will gradually become apparent over a week.

After the lip flip procedure, you can anticipate a subtle yet noticeable enhancement to the upper lip, resulting in a more defined, youthful, and aesthetically pleasing smile. The upper lip will appear fuller and more prominent, creating a natural, balanced look that complements your overall facial features.
