When possible during the excision of the lip lesion, a segment of labial mucosa is left attached along the labioalveolar groove centrally... This mucosa helps preserve the sulcus and allows a tension-free closure to the flap mucosa... Burow triangles are designed bilaterally, with each base equal in width to one-half of the lip defect... A line is first drawn horizontally and slightly superiorly from the oral commissure... Facial musculature along the base of the triangle is incised as far laterally as necessary to suture the muscle in the midline... The mucosa is incised intraorally slightly superior to the incision through the muscle to preserve a cuff of mucosa to help reconstruct the vermilion border... Intraoral mucosal advancement flaps are also created as diagramed to create a new lip... After closure, a portion of skin is excised and intraoral mucosa is advanced to create a new vermilion border... Critical to a functional lower lip reconstruction are sufficient oral access, preservation of sensation, oral competence, and muscle integrity... Using this technique, functional rehabilitation seems to be improved with muscle transposition... The distinct advantage of this operation is its ability to reconstruct nearly the entire lower lip in a single-stage procedure... An obvious disadvantage is reduction in the size of the orifice of the oral cavity and a “permanent smile” deformity of the lips, particularly in edentulous patients... Fortunately, lip cancer remains one of the most curable malignancies in the head and neck region... The 10-year survival rate can be as high as 98% and recurrence-free survival is more than 90%.
