Figure 1: A 26-year-old electrician had totally necrotic tissue on both the lower and upper lip (Left). After debridement, it is seen that the skin and mucosa were simultaneously affected with similar percentages and the right commissure was intact. The percentage of the defect was approximately 90% for both lips (Center). Eleven months after reconstruction, an acceptable appearance of face was evident, and results for neurosensorial tests were also good (Right)
