Skin graft vestibuloplasty has long been popularized in increasing the depth of the vestibule. An unusual case of vestibuloplasty for correction of vestibule depth due to previous surgery is presented. Conventional methods of graft-stent fixation are traumatic, effortful and carry substantial risk. An altered method for rehabilitation of the present case by using graft-vestibuloplasty is described with underlying physiology of the process.
