Abstract

The technique of a lower lip reconstruction with a composite radial forearm-palmaris longus free flap was further refined in this report. A ventral tongue flap enhanced the lip aesthetics by recreating the vermilion. Lip suspension was enhanced by securing the palmaris tendon to the malar eminences as well as to the cut ends of the orbicularis oris muscle. The patient achieved oral continence as well as dynamic movement of the lip during speaking and swallowing.
