Reconstruction of Defects Involving the Lip and Chin

Abstract

Successful perioral reconstruction is the result of consideration of both functional and esthetic goals. The lips are complex esthetic units with multiple tissue layers and distinct anatomic landmarks. Reconstruction can be difficult due to variables affecting the defect, such as size, depth, location, and involvement of adjacent subunits. There are many local flaps that can be used to match the complex tissue layers and anatomic landmarks. Use of the same reconstructive principles can be applied to secondary reconstruction to attain a successful outcome. This article focuses on local reconstructive options for defects of the lip and chin.
