Traumatic lip injury is one of the most common clinical conditions in facial injuries. Nonetheless, the degree of the convex and concave slopes on the vermilion border appears to be unique and dynamic; therefore, the reconstruction of the lip defect is always challenging for plastic surgeons [1]. We present a patient who fell off a motorcycle at speed and had a severe friction burn injury with a significant loss of the skin and soft tissue on the left lower lip.
