The lip flip has become an increasingly popular cosmetic procedure throughout the early 2020’s. It only takes a minute to perform and can subtly turn out the upper lip to make the lips appear fuller.

The lip flip works by relaxing the muscle around the mouth with anti-wrinkle injections. In a few days, when the anti-wrinkle product starts to work, the upper lip can subtly turn outwards giving the appearance of a fuller upper lip. In some patients the lip flip treatment can also help reduce a ‘gummy smile‘. Are you looking for a lip flip treatment in Melbourne?

A lip flip treatment typically requires between 2 and 4 units of anti-wrinkle product. Each injection site is usually treated with 0.5 to 1 unit of the product.

The effects of a lip flip treatment usually last for up to 8 weeks. Compared to other facial areas, the longevity of the treatment is relatively shorter due to the use of smaller units when addressing the upper lip.

The side effects of a lip flip procedure are mild and are likely to wear off within 2 weeks. They include:

  • A small bruise at the injection points
  • Temporary muscle weakness in the upper lip making it more difficult to purse the lips and use a straw.
