How does a lip flip work?
A lip flip focuses on the upper lip. Age can cause your upper lip to shrink, and for some, genetics causes the upper lip to be thin. And when you smile, your upper lip curls inward, and appears to vanish. This type of smile is called a “gummy smile,” a condition that causes the lips to sit too high on the gums, far above the teeth.
Botox is injected into the Cupid's bow and the corners of your mouth, which gently relaxes the tiny muscles above your upper lip. This causes your upper lip to unfurl and look plumper and naturally attractive, and provides a fuller, more beautiful smile.
Lip flip candidates
Ideal candidates for a lip flip would like to enhance their smile and boost the volume of their upper lip without surgery or the use of fillers. Lip flip candidates should meet the following requirements:
- Are 18 years old or older
- Are in general good health
- Have no allergies to neuromodulators such as Botox
- Would like to resolve a gummy smile, a thin upper lip, and/or vertical lip lines

Lip flip after care
After your lip flip, you have some redness in the area, or you might feel some tenderness or temporary numbness. These side effects fade quickly and allow you get right back to your usual routine.
