Looking for a subtle but significant enhancement of the lip border and greater lip show when smiling? Discover a subtle yet transformative approach to enhancing your features with a LipFlip- redefining your smile with precision and sophistication without the added volume.

What is a Lip Flip?

The LipFlip is a non-surgical cosmetic procedure designed to enhance the appearance of the upper lip. The LipFlip is a simple and effective lip enhancing procedure that is achieved by using precise doses of neuromodulators around the mouth.

Unlike traditional lip fillers, a Lip Flip involves injecting a small amount of botulinum toxin, such as Botox, into the muscles around the upper lip. This causes a subtle relaxation of the muscles, resulting in a lifted appearance that exposes more of the upper lip, creating the illusion of fuller lips. The Lip Flip is also great for correcting gummy smiles and fine lines around the mouth. 

The beauty of a Lip Flip lies in its subtlety. It’s not about plumping up the lips; it’s about enhancing the natural beauty of your pout. By gently flipping the upper lip, this procedure offers a refined and sophisticated look that can make a world of difference.

The Lip Flip Experience

During this quick and virtually painless procedure, Dr. Paul Jarrod Frank will administer a few strategically placed injections. The goal of the injections are to relax the muscles just enough to create a subtle lift in the upper lip. The result is a more prominent upper lip border, giving the appearance of a flirtatious and alluring pout.

Topical numbing agents are often used to ensure your comfort during the Lip Flip procedure. With minimal downtime and no need for extensive aftercare, it’s a convenient way to enhance your appearance without disrupting your daily activities.

The Benefits Of A Lip Flip

Enhanced Lip Definition

A Lip Flip offers a refined enhancement by accentuating the natural border of the upper lip. The result is a more defined and alluring pout that complements your facial features.

Subtle and Natural-Looking

Say goodbye to the stereotype of overly plumped lips. A Lip Flip provides a modest, yet noticeable, transformation that maintains the authenticity of your natural beauty.

Quick and Effortless

With most Lip Flip procedures taking only a matter of minutes, it’s the perfect lunchtime enhancement. Achieve that coveted lip flip without the need for a lengthy commitment.

Gummy Smile Correction

A Lip Flip procedure treats a gummy smile by using neuromodulators to relax muscles around the upper lip. This prevents excessive lifting of the lip when smiling, reducing the visibility of the gums without invasive measures.

Is the Lip Flip Right for You?

The Lip Flip is tailored to enhance your unique features. During your consultation with Dr. Frank he will discuss your expectations, assess your facial anatomy, and create a personalized plan that aligns with your vision.

Can Lip Flip Be Combined With Other Procedures?

The versatile Lip Flip procedure offers the flexibility to be performed either as a standalone enhancement or in conjunction with lip volumizers, providing a range of options to tailor the aesthetic outcome to your preferences and desired results. A lip flip works on muscle while filler works on volume.


Visible results typically show within just one week following the Lip Flip procedure, and the aesthetic enhancements endure for an approximate duration of around four months, allowing you to enjoy an extended period of refined and subtly transformed lip aesthetics.

Are There any Conditions That May Prevent Someone from Getting a Lip Flip?

Certain medical conditions, allergies, or medications may make someone ineligible for a lip flip. It’s essential to discuss your medical history and current medications with a qualified healthcare professional to ensure safe treatment.

If I am Pregnant or Breastfeeding, Can I Undergo a Lip Flip?

No, patients who are pregnant or breastfeeding are not suitable candidates for the procedure.

Are Lip Flip Treatments Suitable for All Skin Tones?

Yes, individuals with light, medium, or darker skin tones may be candidates for lip flip procedures.

Can the Effects of a Lip Flip be Reversed?

While there is no quick method of dissolving or reversing the effects of a lip flip, the effects are shorter term at two to 4 months compared to other procedures with dermal fillers and neuromodulators. The goal of the procedure should be a very subtle enhancement, in which case the patient would just not elect to repeat the procedure after the effects have diminished.
