Is the Lip Flip the New Filler?

Kylie JennerВ isВ potentiallyВ responsible forВ lip fillersВ becoming mainstream, and there's no denying that use of injectables is becoming more normalised in beauty circles. So when we heard about aВ new process calledВ a "Lip Flip", our interest was piqued.В

According toВ Allure, the "Botox Lip Flip" is a procedure whereВ Botox is administered into muscles surrounding the mouth, resulting in a more pronounced pout.В When you consider that filler floods the inside of the lip withВ stabilised hyaluronic acid,В the Lip Flip procedure is a very different approach to attaining the lips you wish you were born with.

Facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon Dara LiottaВ told AllureВ while filler adds volume toВ make the lip seem larger, you can use Botox to relax the muscles around your mouth, andВ roll your lip outward (flipping it). So, the procedure causes your lips to turn up or down, creating the illusion of a fuller, more voluminous pout without actually needing to, you know, pout.

It goes without saying, but as with any cosmetic procedure, you need to be cautious and see a recommended professional. As it is a paralysing toxin, tooВ much Botox can cause your mouth toВ stop moving effectively.В
