“Lip flip” is a cosmetic enhancement term that refers to the process of “flipping the lip” to help enhance the mouth’s curve and pout.
A Botox® lip flip is a treatment that uses the popular botulinum toxin injectable to achieve this coveted look. The approach harnesses the powerful cosmetic benefits of Botox® and helps patients achieve a more dramatic lip that enhances their overall appearance and accentuates the mouth nicely that cannot be achieved with filler alone.
A Botox® lip flip uses botulinum toxin injections to visibly lift the edges of the lips to produce a more dramatic “flip”, or pout. The Botox® allows the upper part of the lip to relax and naturally flip upwards.
The procedure is fairly simple and can be performed in as little as thirty minutes at our comfortable facility center for facial plastic surgery in Palm Beach. The Botox® is injected directly into the lips at strategic areas to deliver the final result. Some swelling may occur after the appointment, but patients should be able to see their results within the first few days.
When it comes to lip enhancement treatments, most patients automatically think of cosmetic surgery or the ever-popular facial fillers. Lip fillers were recently popularized by celebrities and the media, with an exaggerated and dramatic lip pout. It can draw attention to your face and help you make a dramatic and bold impression.
Using Botox® for lip treatments is known as a lip flip, and is a beneficial alternative for many reasons. Some patients find that they need less formula with Botox® as compared to lip fillers since it works to create the pout naturally by relaxing the muscles in the upper lip. It can also reduce a gummy smile and enhance your lip shape without adding excessive volume.
Botox® is a versatile and popular injectable available in Palm Beach. It can be performed on adults who want to reduce the appearance of dynamic wrinkles or enhance certain features, such as with a Botox® lip flip.
It should only be performed on eligible candidates, including those who are not allergic or can safely get injections. Patients who are pregnant, breastfeeding, or have a neurological disease are not advised to get Botox® injections.

Non-surgical procedures like a Botox® lip flip are excellent ways for patients to achieve noticeable improvements to their facial features without extensive recovery time or incisions.
These procedures are not permanent, so they are better suited for patients who are not seeking dramatic results. A Botox® lip flip can last anywhere from three to six months, and regular appointments can be set to maintain your desired look.
Botox® injections are considered minimally invasive and virtually painless when compared to alternatives like plastic surgery. A lip flip requires injections to be made in the lips or around the lips, which can feel like a sharp poke or pinch, but most patients find it easy to manage.
There are numbing options also available to help make your experience more comfortable. Some patients opt to use arnica to help manage swelling and pain.
A lip flip can achieve many results, including reducing certain signs of aging like sagging or thinning lips. More commonly, it is used to enhance the overall look of the lips, so the best age to undergo the treatments may vary for everyone. At Troiano Facial Plastics, we offer Botox® as a cosmetic enhancement and preventative treatment to patients 18 years of age and older.
