Lip RECONSTRUCTION

The lips are the principal components of the lower face. They are vital to normal facial appearance, and they play a significant role in speech, articulation, swallowing, and personal interaction. The lips consist of skin, mucus lining, and muscle. It is essential to realign all components to recreate an aesthetically pleasing and functional lip. The lip may be repaired by simply bringing the wound edges together, but larger wounds may require recruiting tissue from other parts of the same lip, part of the opposite lip, or cheekfor adequate reconstruction. Dr. Bhrany chooses a method that results in the best cosmetic and functional outcome in the safest possible way for our patients.
