Lip Flip Treatment

Are you self-conscious about thin lips that make you look older than you are? Want to add volume and fullness without invasive surgery or questionable fillers? A lip flip may be the natural-looking solution you've been seeking.

What is a Lip Flip?

A Lip Flip treatment strategically injects botulinum toxin (e.g. Botox) into the upper lip muscles. By relaxing specific muscles, it allows the lip border to gently evert or "flip out" slightly.

This subtle muscle manipulation creates the visual effect of fuller lips through natural-looking sculpting from within. Unlike fillers, implants or surgery, this augmentation uses our own muscle activity and tissue to create the effect of a lip augmentation.

Skillful Injectual practitioners precisely map lip muscle anatomy to administer botulinum toxin or Botox with minimal precision injections. Within days, the lip takes on its new shapelier position through paralysis of targeted depressor muscles alone.

Gradual yet undetectable, Lip Flips can create a more desirable lip shape through artful facial neuromodulation—not through volumet addition or anatomical reshaping.

Am I a Good Candidate for Lip Flip in London?

Most suitable lip flip candidates generally:

  • Have thin, sagging, or partially everted upper lips lacking definition
  • Are bothered by outer lip border descent with ageing but not wanting drastic augmentation
  • Are generally in good health and realistic about expectations for enhancement

    What is a lip flip? 

    Our lip flip is a fast-growing procedure that makes your lips look bigger without having to inject dermal filler and increasing the volume. By injecting a number of Botox injections in the lip border, and therefore minimally relaxing the muscles around your lip, you create a flipped effect of the lips which make them appear larger. 

    What is the difference between lip filler and a lip flip?

    A lip flip and lip filler both make your lips look bigger. With lip filler, we inject just like the name suggests dermal filler in the lips. Because it is done with dermal filler, this has an instant effect. With a lip flip, we inject Botox into parts of the lip border to make them appear ‘poutier’, without having to add any volume. It is entirely up to personal preference as to what would be your best option. Because we don’t necessarily add any volume, a lip flip is often a good gateway into seeing if lip filler would suit you. 

    How long does it last? 

    Just like Botox in the forehead, this treatment lasts 3-6 months. The results often don’t last as long as forehead Botox because the muscles in the mouth are used much more frequently than the muscles in the forehead. 

    How much does it cost? 

    Our lip flip costs £150 in our London clinic which includes a complimentary LED treatment post treatment to aid healing and minimise swelling and bruising. If you want to book an appointment for the best lip flip London click here!
