Every year, about 4.5 million people are bitten by dogs, with the face and hands being the most commonly bitten areas of the body. Children and women are the most vulnerable members of this group. Lip reconstruction after a dog bite, also known as restorative surgery, can help serious dog bite victims repair the damage, restore function, decrease scars, alleviate the infection, and restore their appearance and confidence.

Mouth And Lip Correction Surgery at Our Hospital
One of the most difficult aspects of plastic surgery is the reconstruction of dog bite injuries. Plastic surgery for dog bites often involves avulsion (tearing off) of facial tissues, which requires skilled restoration and tissue preservation to optimize recovery. Bite injuries are typically caused by dogs gripping tissue in their mouth and pulling it away from the victim, causing the tissue to tear and/or rip. Richardsons Dental and Craniofacial Hospital recently received a request for mouth and lip correction surgery from a patient named Prita ( name changed ). The scar was at the commissure, which is the point where the upper and lower lips meet. She had already undergone a couple of surgeries in an attempt to cure the defect, but the results were insignificant. When we asked how she got such a scar, she explained that it was from a childhood accident caused by a dog bite many years ago. Apart from the fact that she couldn’t close her mouth properly, the abnormality was harming her self-esteem. According to the World Health Organization, dog bite injuries affect 17 out of every 1000 individuals worldwide. It is more common in males than in females, and it is more widespread in younger guys since they are out of their homes for a longer time period in order to earn money, and so have more chances of being exposed to stray dogs.
Lips are one of the most used features on the face. They are used for talking, eating, whistling, and expressing love and affection. Lips that are either too thin or too thick do not always match the size of the face. If your lips are too big, they can be decreased in size and reshaped to fit your face better.
