We all have features that we wish were a little different.  If you’ve always dreamed of a plumper pout, you may want to consider Botox for thin lips.  

While you may think of Botox for reducing wrinkles and smoothing lines, it can also be used to enhance the shape of your lips. This procedure is known as a lip flip.

Botox For Thin Lips AKA The Lip Flip

If you are looking for a non-surgical way to make your thin lips appear fuller, a Botox lip flip may be the answer.  Botox is injected into the corners of your mouth and edges of your lips, relaxing the muscles around your upper lip.  This causes your lip to “flip” upward a small amount and appear fuller than normal.

Am I A Good Candidate For A Lip Flip?

From a medical perspective, if you are in good physical health and do not have an active oral infection, you are a good candidate for using Botox for thin lip enhancement.

You may want to consider a Botox lip flip if:

  • You want your lips to appear fuller
  • You don’t want fuller or surgical augmentation
  • You want to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines around your mouth
  • You want to cover your gums more
  • You want a more confident smile

Botox Lip Flip Vs. Filler

Both of these non-surgical treatments will make your lips look fuller.  With filler, the results are immediate.  

If you choose to get a lip flip, the results will appear gradually over the week following your injections and often result in a more natural appearance.  Botox is safe to use with minimal pain or side effects.
