[Abstract] PURPOSE: To investigate a functional reconstruction technique for total lower-lip defects. METHODS: Nine patients with lower lip defects were reconstructed following cancer ablation using double mental V-Y island advancement flaps, based on mental neurovascular bundle combined with tongue flaps. RESULTS: All flaps survived completely. The patients were followed for 6-20 months. The lip function and sensation were normal, and aesthetic appearance was satisfactory. No patient developed local recurrence or cervical lymphatic metastasis. CONCLUSION: The technique of combining a double mental neurovascular V-Y island advancement flap with a lingual mucosal membrane flap is ideal for functional repair of total lower lip defects following cancer ablation.
