What is a Lip Flip? 

A lip flip and lip fillers are both excellent options for achieving fuller lips, each offering unique benefits. Lip fillers involve injecting hyaluronic acid (HA) into your lips to add volume, giving you instantly plumper lips. In contrast, a lip flip uses wrinkle relaxer injections in specific parts of your upper lip. Within about a week, these injections create a fuller, "poutier" look without actually adding volume. Many people find that lip flips result in a more natural appearance compared to lip fillers.

Your Lip Flip Procedure

Before your lip flip in Bakersfield, you'll have a consultation with a medical professional, who will take the time to understand your desires and ensure your comfort throughout the process. During this consultation, they will discuss various aspects, including your goals, expectations, and any concerns you may have about your appearance. They may ask questions such as why you're interested in a lip flip and whether anyone close to you has influenced your decision.

During your visit they will also assess your overall health, including any existing medical conditions or risks that may affect the procedure. It's essential to inform them about any allergies, especially to cow milk, as some botulinum toxin brands contain albumin derived from cow milk. Additionally, disclose all medications you're currently taking, whether prescription or over-the-counter, as they can impact your recovery.

To optimize your results and ensure a smooth healing process, it is recommend to refrain from alcohol, cigarettes, and aspirin for at least a week before the procedure. These substances can thin the blood or increase the risk of bruising at the injection sites.

During the lip flip procedure, a medical professional will use a fine needle to administer the wrinkle relaxer into specific areas of your upper lip, including the corners and edges. While the procedure itself is relatively quick, typically lasting between ten to twenty minutes, you are assured to be informed and comfortable throughout. If you have concerns about discomfort, they can discuss options such as applying a numbing cream or performing a nerve block to minimize any potential pain.

Rest assured, Dr. Rao and her team of professionals are dedicated to providing personalized care that meets your aesthetic goals while prioritizing your safety and well-being.

Your Recovery

After the lip flip procedure, we will closely monitor you for up to fifteen minutes to ensure no immediate side effects. You may experience slight swelling, sensitivity, or numbness in your lips, which typically subsides within 24 hours.

To aid in your lips' healing and prevent the wrinkle relaxer from migrating to other areas of your face, consider the following tips:

  • Apply an ice pack for up to ten minutes to reduce inflammation, pain, and swelling.
  • Avoid using lipstick, lip balm, or any other products on your lips for at least three to four days.
  • Refrain from applying pressure to your lips, including touching, puckering, kissing, or using a straw.
  • Be gentle while brushing your teeth and avoid sleeping facedown to support optimal healing.

These steps will support a smooth recovery process, ensuring your lips heal beautifully while maintaining the desired results from your lip flip in Bakersfield.
