The principles of management of lip cancer require resection with negative margins and reconstruction of the defect to restore form and function. The ability to restore esthetics and oral competency, whether the defect is acquired by ablation or trauma, is based upon the size, location, and integrity of the local anatomy. Historically, surgical options for reconstruction of the lip have been categorized according to the size of the defect.
