Maxillofacial Surgeon Dr. S.M. Balaji successfully performed a combined correction of the nose & lip defect. A medial & lateral osteotomy of the nose was done to reduce the large nose. With this the nose was reshaped & given a more proportionate, balanced form. The lip defect was corrected with Abbe-flap technique. A flap of tissue was taken from the lower lip, rotated across the mouth & sutured to 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. After 3 weeks once blood supply is established, the flap will be divided, giving the lips an enhanced form, function & appearance.
