Burn is a devastating condition and post-burn sequelae are common after deep burns. Post-burn ectropion of the lower lip is one of them. The usual treatment is release of ectropion of the lower lip and resurfacing of the defect with a split thickness skin graft. Several other procedures have been described in literature. We have used a new concept to transport the defect, resulting after releasing the lower lip ectropion, to the suprahyoid region. The mental defect is covered by a bipedicled flap transposed from the suprahyoid region and the donor defect is grafted with a split thickness skin graft. We have used this technique in three adult females with post-burn lower lip ectropion obtaining good aesthetic appearance and no recurrences. Level of Evidence: Level V, therapeutic study.
