Lip reconstruction using lateral vermillion and soft tissue advancement flaps and
a central "V" resection, in a patient with squamous cell carcinoma of the lip.
 
This patient has 1/3 of the vermillion of her lip removed.  The defect could be divided into three parts:  A central 1/3 very deep defect and lateral 1/3 shallower defects.  The lateral 1/3 defects were reconstructed by advancing vermillion and underlining muscle from the lateral lip.  The middle third was removed with a "V" resection and three layer closure.
