Abstract

  When we consider reconstructing the lower lip after an oncological ablation, "staggered reconstruction" begins with simpler procedures up to the most complex ones. Generally, these defects are previously planned in a regular way, since they need a precise design of the reconstruction technique. The local flaps are within the second reconstructive option, after the primary closures. They have the advantage of a good harmony with color, easy access, simplicity in the surgical technique and the use of an innervated muscle for its function. Among its disadvantages, it includes the need to make extra skin incisions on the face and the lack of enough tissue for very extensive defects. The objective of this article is to demonstrate the total reconstruction of the lower lip with modified bilateral cheek advancement flap.
