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.

On behalf of the entire team at Fechner MD Plastic Surgery & Medical Spa, we would like to take a moment to say thank you again for your loyalty and support during this unprecedented time. The past several months have been unlike anything we've ever experienced, and we're working hard to evolve so that we can continue to provide you with the patient experience you have come to expect from our practice.
Since the beginning of the COVID-19 worldwide pandemic, Fechner MD Plastic Surgery & Medical Spa has taken extreme precautionary measures, in addition to following the most up to date CDC recommendations and state guidelines to maximize the health and safety of our patients, staff and facility. Our surgical center and medical spa remain committed to providing the best patient care, and we are actively working to take all necessary precautions as we plan to safely re-open our practice. Please help us continue to protect the health and well-being of our patients and workplace by cooperating with all of our precautionary measures and protocols against COVID-19 at your next appointment, or as you plan for your surgery.
As a fully accredited surgical facility, Fechner MD has always observed the highest level of safety and sanitation. In fact, as a surgeon, Dr. Fechner is an expert in infection control. We want to ensure that we are doing everything possible for our patients to safely return for surgical and medical spa treatments alike.
The upgraded work flow and safety protocols we have implemented at Fechner MD far exceed those being recommended by any government agency.
Fechner MD will adhere to all local, state, and government mandates. We expect to cautiously resume medical spa and injectable treatments during Phase 2 of the Massachusetts phased reopening. We are awaiting a definitive date from Governor Baker. Cosmetic surgery is expected to resume during Phase 3 of Governor Baker’s plan. We ask for your patience and understanding as our staff is working diligently to reschedule all surgeries and procedures affected by our closure. Please understand that in order to open and adhere to Massachusetts guidelines, we will need to limit the number of staff and patients we have in our building and extend the time between patient appointments in order to sanitize rooms. This means we will have fewer available openings for procedures. In order to maximize our provider appointments, we will continue to hold consultations virtually rather than in person, with a few exceptions (body contouring, Instalift, vein treatments).
We thank you in advance for your patience throughout this time, and we look forward to seeing you here again as we begin to resume business operations. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Fechner MD Plastic Surgery & Medical Spa at (508) 754-4000 and our team will gladly assist you. Thank you!
