Lip Repositioning with Reversible Trial for the Management of Excessive Gingival Display: A Case Series

Paul J. Jacobs, DDS/Bryan P. Jacobs, DMD

Lip repositioning surgery is a largely unknown and underutilized treatment modality for excessive gingival display. It involves precise resection of maxillary mucosal tissues with reattachment of the lip in a more coronal position. This limits lip elevation on smiling and increases lip fullness. While this is an elective treatment, no reported cases have yet offered patients the ability to preview the outcome in a reversible manner. This case series presents seven patients who were successfully managed with trial, and then definitive, lip repositioning.
