Abstract


Corner mouth lift is in increasing demand among young patients in East Asia. Although various surgical methods exist for corner mouth lift, many patients are reluctant to undergo surgery due to fears of postsurgical scarring. We present a new technique aimed at reducing postoperative scarring. The technique involves triangular excision of the corner of the mouth and incision of the commissure with transposition of a lateral vermilion flap to lift the corner of the mouth. The muscle around the corner of the mouth is dissected to release tension. The corner mouth lift was successfully performed in all patients. It can be effectively used even in patients, such as young Asian women, who are susceptible to hypertrophic scars.
