Maxillofacial Surgeon Dr. S. M. Balaji successfully performed an abbe flap procedure for lip correction and nose correction. A flap of tissue was taken from the lower lip, rotated across the mouth and used to reconstruct the upper lip with the base of the flap still attached to the lower lip to maintain blood supply. The flap was taken with hair follicles to ensure moustache growth. Once blood supply was established, the flap was divided giving the upper lip a more natural, improved form. The broad nose was reshaped to make it more proportionate and balanced. Following surgery the man was very happy to have an improved facial profile.
