Submental Hair-Bearing Skin Flap to Upper Lip



Submental Hair-Bearing Skin Flap to Upper Lip


H. SCHAUPP





Donor sites for hair-bearing skin flaps used in the reconstruction of the upper lip are the scalp (bitemporal flaps), the cheeks (advancement flaps), and the cervical and submental regions (unilateral or bilateral pedicle flaps) (1). The submental flap is preferable for defects of the upper lip and adjacent cheeks in which at least part of the labial mucosa is preserved.
