ABSTRACT

The reconstruction of the lower lip defects which may result from malignancy, trauma, and burn is necessary for mastication, oral competence, salivary retain, articulation, and aesthetic appearance of the face. While small (30% of the lower lip) and medium (30%–80% of the lower lip) size defects are reconstructed using primary repair and local flaps, reconstruction of the large defects including total and near-total of the lower lip is very challenging entity.
