A new design of a cross-lip vermilion flap

A new design of a cross-lip vermilion flap

Annals of Plastic Surgery 36(2): 197-200

A new technique is described for the treatment of major vermilion defects using a cross-lip vermilion flap as a multistaged procedure. There is minimal disfigurement of the lip. The reconstruction is achieved using tissue of similar quality, texture, and color. The advantages of this method over the currently available techniques are discussed.
