He sustained multiple facial injuries involving both his upper and lower lips along with nose hanging with 2cms skin paddle support.

Local Advancement flap was used for reconstruction of the lip along with vermilion reconstruction on one side and Mucosal advancement flap from cheek was primarily used with a portion of muscle for mucosal defect closure for attaining perfect mouth opening and closure, or pursing movements of lips and for reconstruction of the angle of mouth.

Today in the 18 days time he is able to eat normally, brush normally and talk properly. He is a happy man today, to get his original face back and is resuming to his work in two weeks.
