Q: Lip Flip with Botox?
I’ve always thought that my philtrum is on the longer side and would like for more of my teeth to show. Would getting a lip flip result in more of my teeth showing or less?
A: Thanks for your question. Without photos and a dynamic evaluation, ie examination of your lip and how it functions and looks on your face, it is impossible to give you a personalized answer.
Botox is a muscle relaxer and when used in micro-amounts can rebalance lip muscle activity and create an outward rotation of the lip or lip flip. Fillers, typically used to add volume can fashion the lip as well. A subnasal lip lift can reduce the length of the lip, improving tooth show and adjust for any philtral differences. Please consult with a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon to examine and review your options. All the best!
