This patient had a severe dog bite injury which resulted in complete loss of upper lip soft tissue. Dr. Dean was able to use the patient’s lower lip to reconstruct the upper lip after two planned operations. The lower lip soft tissue with the hair bearing region was used to fill in the missing mustache area to help restore the anatomy of the upper lip.
