To perform a lip flip, Dr. Chopra will make a series of injections just above the upper lip. Botox temporarily relaxes the part of the muscle over the upper lip, causing the lip to roll slightly upward so it appears more plumped and defined. This muscle relaxation can also help smooth vertical lines around the lips.
Botox isn’t a substitute for lip fillers. Lip filler is actually the best option if you’re looking for fuller lips that last a bit longer.
Side effects of a lip flip may include inability to drink through a straw or whistle. The symptoms will subside as botox wears off.
