Abstract

Summary A new technique is presented for severe lower lip disfigurement resulting from war injury. The procedure consists of a Kirschner wire used as the means of traction on the remaining soft tissue of the lower lip, using the upper teeth or pyriform aperture bone as remote fixed points for tissue traction. The technique which is simple, short, and effective provides an acceptable appearance, texture, and skin sensation. It proved to have several advantages over other more commonly employed methods.
