In the quest for fuller, more alluring lips, many patients are turning to a cosmetic procedure known as a “lip flip.” At the Park & Rebowe Clinic, our aesthetics experts frequently perform this non-surgical treatment for patients who desire subtle lip enhancement without adding volume, as with dermal fillers.

A lip flip is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure offered at Park & Rebowe Clinic that involves the use of Botox to create a fuller-looking upper lip.
During this procedure, our skilled practitioners inject Botox near the Cupid’s bow of the upper lip and the corners of the mouth, causing the muscles to relax, so the upper lip “flips” outward. The result is the appearance of a larger, plumper upper lip.
Advantages Of A Lip Flip Over Lip Fillers
The advantages of a lip flip over dermal fillers are distinct. A Botox lip flip is often ideal for individuals seeking more subtle yet impactful enhancement than lip augmentation procedures that involve dermal filler injections. Unlike dermal fillers, which are used to add volume to the lips, a lip flip offers a unique approach by relaxing the orbicularis oris muscle in the upper lip.
Rather than augmenting the upper lip by filling it with soft tissue filler, a lip flip reveals more of the upper lip by slightly flipping it outward. This creates an enhanced upper lip contour that can address a “gummy” smile and/or give the patient’s lips a more shapely, alluring look. Because lip flip results are more subtle and will wear off more quickly than dermal fillers, this treatment is often appealing to patients who have never undergone a lip enhancement procedure. With that said, some patients who love their dermal filler lip augmentation results will opt for a lip flip as a complementary treatment.
At the Park & Rebowe Clinic, our experienced professionals strategically administer Botox injections near the center and corners of the upper lip. The goal is to create a sexy pout while effectively reducing fine, vertical lines above the lip. Notably, a lip flip can be particularly effective for individuals with gummy smiles, as it minimizes gum exposure when smiling.
What To Expect After A Lip Flip At Park & Rebowe Clinic
No downtime is necessary after a lip flip at Park & Rebowe Clinic. However, you will be given post-treatment recommendations to follow for a few days following your lip flip treatment to minimize swelling and ensure optimal results. Most patients notice the plumping effect of their lip flip treatment within a week. Retreatment to maintain results will likely be needed every three to four months.
