Lip Flip Treatment

At Facethetics Skin Clinic, we are aware of your desire for modest yet significant lip augmentation that will amplify your inherent attractiveness and self-assurance. We are pleased to present our Lip Flip treatment, a non-invasive cosmetic technique that targets the muscles surrounding the mouth to gently improve the appearance of the lips. This cutting-edge procedure uses injectable neuromodulators, such Botox or Dysport, to relax the muscles that draw the upper lip inward, giving the lip border a minor “flip” and a more defined, younger-looking appearance. Whether your aim is to improve your smile or attain a more pronounced and contoured lip line, our Lip Flip procedure provides a secure, efficient, and realistic-looking outcome customized to meet your specific needs.

What is a Lip Flip?

A Lip Flip is a type of cosmetic operation wherein the lips are subtly made more attractive by injecting neuromodulators, like Dysport or Botox, into the muscles surrounding the mouth. A Lip Flip aims to relax the muscles that govern the upper lip’s mobility, letting it to roll slightly outward and giving the appearance of a bigger, more defined lip contour—in contrast to lip fillers, which give the lips more volume. The end effect is a modest but noticeable improvement that can help with lip symmetry, form, and attractiveness in general.


The Lip Flip treatment at Facethetics Skin Clinic is performed by our experienced and trained medical professionals. Here’s what you can expect during your Lip Flip procedure:

  •  Consultation: You will meet with one of our medical professionals for a consultation prior to the procedure to go over your expectations for the treatment, your medical history, and your goals for lip enhancement. We’ll determine whether you’re a good candidate for the Lip Flip surgery and adjust the course of therapy to get the outcomes you want.
  • Preparation: The treatment area will be cleaned on the day of your appointment, and to help you feel as comfortable as possible throughout the process, a topical numbing lotion might be used. Before the procedure starts, you’ll have a chance to voice any worries or inquiries you may have.
  • Injection: Our medical professional will gently inject tiny amounts of neuromodulator, concentrating on the upper lip area, into the muscles surrounding the mouth using a fine needle. The way the neuromodulator works is that it causes the muscles to momentarily relax, which causes the upper lip to roll slightly outward and produce a faint “flip” of the lip border.

  • Post-Treatment Care:You might have some little bruising, swelling, or redness where the injections were made after the Lip Flip procedure, but these side effects usually go away in a few days. To help you get the best possible outcome and reduce discomfort, our medical specialist will provide you aftercare guidelines.


  • Subtle Lip Enhancement: By giving the appearance of a bigger, more defined lip contour, the Lip Flip treatment enhances the lips subtly yet effectively.
  • Natural-Looking Results: The Lip Flip procedure improves the natural-looking shape and symmetry of your lips, unlike lip fillers, which can occasionally give the appearance of being overfilled or unnatural.
  • No Downtime:With the short recovery period following the Lip Flip surgery, you can get back to your regular activities right away.
  • Customizable Results: The Lip Flip treatment can be customized to suit your individual goals and preferences, ensuring that you achieve the desired lip contour and appearance.

Side Effects

While the Lip Flip treatment is generally safe, some potential side effects may occur, including:

  • Redness and Swelling: Mild redness, swelling, or bruising at the injection sites is common after the Lip Flip treatment, but these side effects typically subside within a few days
  • Temporary Sensitivity: Some patients may experience temporary sensitivity or discomfort in the treated area, but these side effects are usually mild and transient.


To promote optimal results and minimize the risk of side effects, it’s important to follow these aftercare guidelines:

  • Avoid Rubbing or Touching: Avoid rubbing or touching the treated area immediately after the Lip Flip treatment to minimize the risk of irritation or infection.

  • Stay Upright: For the first few hours after the treatment, it’s best to avoid lying down or bending over to prevent the neuromodulator from migrating to unintended areas.
  • Follow Up as Directed: Depending on your individual needs and treatment plan, you may need to schedule a follow-up appointment to assess your results and determine if any additional treatments are necessary.
