Abstract

SUMMARY: A method is described to correct major vermilion defects by using a transverse, cross-lip, vermilion flap. Sizable defects can be easily filled in to obtain an upper lip with better contour and simultaneously reduce the unpleasant fullness of the lower lip to produce better balance between the two lips.
