The lip flip procedure uses BOTOX to provide a gentle parting of the lips, creating a more feminine, youthful appearance. By relaxing the tension around the mouth, BOTOX helps the lips to look fuller and more rounded. It’s an excellent solution for those who wish to augment their lips without the use of dermal fillers. Dr. Fechner is excited to offer this innovative treatment as part of his commitment to state-of-the-art anti-aging techniques and beautiful, natural-looking results.
A lip flip is performed to help give the lips a more sensual and appealing look. BOTOX, a neuromodulator, is injected into the outside of the lips, which temporarily incapacitates the tiny muscles – particularly the orbicularis oris muscle – that keep the lips taut. Once these muscles are relaxed, the upper and lower lips curl outwards, plumping and volumizing the smile without fillers.
With BOTOX, there is no downtime or discomfort to contend with. Patients can return straight away to their normal activities. Most clients notice improvement in their pout within a few days and their final outcome within one week. BOTOX results last around 3-4 months on average.
While a lip flip is a fairly simple, straightforward procedure, it’s still essential that your treatment is overseen by a board-certified plastic surgeon such as Dr. Fechner in Boston and Worcester. This ensures your utmost safety at all points during your cosmetic journey, as well as an outcome that is natural-looking, elegant, and personalized to you.
If you are seeking plumper lips that still look natural and elegant, a lip flip with BOTOX may be the ideal solution for your goals. Lip flip can help correct a gummy smile and create a pout that is more youthful and inviting.
Good candidates are mentally and physically healthy, with no history of allergies to BOTOX. If you have keloid scars, a neuromuscular disorder, or you are currently taking blood thinners, BOTOX may not be the best option for you at this time. When you meet with Dr. Fechner for a private consultation, he will go over your medical history and examine your lips. He then will devise a treatment plan that is best suited to accomplishing your goals.
Because a lip flip is a non-surgical procedure without the use of anesthesia, there is no downtime. Patients can return immediately to their normal routine, whether it’s work, school, or just enjoying the day.
Within several days, patients will notice a relaxation in the lips that makes them appear fuller and plumper. After 10 days, your final result will be evident. Results typically last 3-4 months.
Dr. Fechner and his team will follow up with you to ensure you are pleased with your results. If needed, you can undergo additional lip flip sessions down the line to help maintain your new look.
