Botox Lip Flip before and after

These days, bigger, fuller lips are fashionable. The newest fashion trends all incorporate methods to make your lips appear fuller by utilizing specific lip liners and lipstick colors to give the appearance of fuller lips.

Makeup firms have gotten on board with the craze and are now marketing lip wear that can temporarily fill in the mouth, but lip injections are the best option for people seeking a more long-lasting and realistic-looking fix.

Description of the picture “Popular culture loves full plump lips. It celebrates them and elevates the look so that it is often considered a sign of good health, beauty and youth.”

Botox®, hyaluronic acid, and a number of other substances can be injected into your lips to give the appearance that they are much larger.

One of the most common cosmetic treatments today is lip augmentation. We’ve all heard stories of actors, TV personalities, and other famous people trying to make their lips look more sexy. But it’s not just Hollywood; your neighbor down the street can also be getting their lips done.

Both the older generation and the millennials are becoming fans of this cosmetic injection. The amount of lip augmentation procedures performed on patients between the ages of 18 and 55+ increased by 70% between 2000 and 2022, according to a research by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons.

The question is: how can a couple of injections help create the perfect pout?

How Injections Can Create Fuller Lips

Juvederm, Restylane, and Vollure are three popular hyaluronic acid-based fillers used for lip augmentation. However, a more recent and novel method of lip augmentation employs Botox®.

To produce a more noticeable pout, the lips are sculpted and filled in. Because the method entails flipping out the lips along the lip line and slightly rolling them outwards to create a “sexier” look, the effects produced by Botox® are milder.

Dermal fillers only add volume to the injected portion of the lips. By injecting a chemical into the lips that encourages collagen synthesis and boosts their volume, fillers figuratively enlarge the lips. Contrarily, Botox® relaxes the muscles in the lip region and flips out the lip to provide the appearance of larger lips.

The Botox® Lip Flip Procedure

 Botox® Lip Flip, is the most popular cosmetic operation. The upper lip is rolled out using a method known as the Botox® upper lip curl after the muscles have been relaxed.

The orbicularis oris muscle, located on the sides of the upper and lower lip, is the target of Botox® treatment. It relaxes the muscle fibers by blocking the nerve impulses and preventing them from entering the muscle. This allows the lip to flip outward without affecting its functions.

A precise approach is used to place the injection into the orbicularis oris.  The patient’s ability to speak or eat should not be affected by the Botox® injections in any way, nor should the movement of the lips be restricted.

The immediate results that Botox® promises stay significantly longer than those of any other lip-enhancing cosmetic surgery.

Lip Fillers vs. Botox®

Lip augmentation assists to correct the most prevalent issues with the lips, including lip symmetry, marionette lines, volume loss, and gummy grins. Botox® injections or dermal fillers can help with these problems. Dermal fillers restore the lost volume in different parts of the face where there is a collagen deficiency. 

Dermal Fillers have a comparable impact on the lips, plumping the top lip to make it more proportionate to the lower lip. Lip fillers simply volumize the lips, which enlarges them. This kind of lip augmentation is carried out using hyaluronic acid-containing fillers.

Injections of type A botulinum toxin relax the muscles in the mouth and roll out the upper lip during the Botox® lip flip procedure. The upper and lower lip muscles get strategic injections of Botox®. The procedure is over in a flash and is fairly quick.

The main distinction between Botox® and lip fillers is that while the latter relaxes the muscles, the former adds volume. Botox® merely gives the sensation of fuller lips but does not really improve their size or volume.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is lip flip better than filler?

A lip flip might be a preferable option if your lips already have a good amount of volume but you want to change their form. Lip fillers can be the answer if you want more volume and results that last longer.

Does Botox lip flip affect speech?

A Botox lip flip can impair the integrity of the lip structure and have an impact on how you talk, smile, etc. It needs to be performed by certified aestetic dentists. 

Can you kiss after Botox lip flip?

Do lip flips look natural?

How long does a Botox lip flip last?

The Botox lip flip only lasts three to four months.

How many units do I need for lip flip?

4-6 units

The Botox lip flip normally only needs 4-6 units of Botox, which cost between $10 and $15 each, as opposed to a whole syringe of lip filler, which can cost between $500 and $1000. A Botox lip flip will probably cost less than $100. 

How much money does a lip flip cost? Will insurance cover it? 

Since a lip flip is an elective cosmetic treatment, insurance will not pay for it. Nevertheless, it is a less expensive alternative to dermal fillers because it often employs a very small amount of Botox. It usually only requires 4-6 units of BOTOX and costs under $100. 

Does lip flip prevent wrinkles around a mouth? 

The orbicularis oris muscle, which is the portion of the muscle above the top lip, relaxes after being injected with that neurotoxin, causing the lip to roll slightly upward and appear more voluminous. The injection locations can also temporarily lessen vertical mouth wrinkles and fine lines.

Is there any downtime after Lip Flip injection?

Because the operation just takes five minutes, it is known as the lunch-break treatment. You could easily fit it in during a busy workday without anyone noticing. However, it is advised that you refrain from doing any hard lifting or demanding workouts for at least 24 hours after the treatment.

How is the Botox® Lip Flip better than the dermal filler?

Injecting hyaluronic acid-based material into the lips is necessary for dermal fillers. There have been some reported incidents of responses, and it is the more expensive treatment.

The lip flip results in a more gradual alteration over time, which is why it is thought to be more natural.
