Abstract

This article discusses the reconstruction of full-thickness defects of the lower and upper lip. Although these may occur as a result of hereditary disorders (cleft lip) or trauma, reconstruction is described in relation to oncologic ablation for primary lip cancers. These defects will obviously be preplanned and most often of regular shape, unlike injuries sustained from penetrating trauma. Therefore, precise elective planning of reconstruction techniques must be undertaken.
