  6. 6. Lip reconstruction Anatomy Muscles Orbicularis oris Closes the oral sphincter Primarily horizontal fibers - compress lips Originate lateral to the commissures Mingle with cranial VII muscles at modiolus Cross the lip Decussate in the midline Insert into opposite philtral column Oblique fibers - evert lip Arise from modiolus Travel upward and medial Insert at the anterior nasal spine, nasal septum, and anterior nasalfloor
  7. 7. Lip reconstruction Anatomy Muscles Major elevators upper lip Levator labii superioris (LLS) Originates from orbital margin Curves around the alar base Inserts into ipsilateral orbicularis oris and philtral column Zygomaticus major extends from malar eminence inserts in modiolus Levator anguli oris arises just below the lateral edge of the LLS
  8. 8. Lip reconstruction Anatomy Muscles Nasalis muscle Three components Arise from bone below the piriform aperture Depressor septi muscle is the most medial of the three. Thispaired muscle arises from the periosteum over the central andlateral incisors to insert cephalad into the footplates of themedial crura (Fig. 2). Its function is primarily the depressing ofthe tip of the nose and secondarily the lifting of the uppercentral lip. The nasalis muscle alar part sends fibers to the alaand the nasalis transversus part to the nasal dorsum19.
  9. 9. Lip reconstruction Anatomy Muscles Mentalis muscle Paired Function primarily in the elevation and protrusion of the centralaspect of the lower lip. They arise from about 2 cm of alveolarperiosteum just below the vestibular sulcus and descend obliquely toinsert into the skin of the chin. Loss of these muscles below the labiomental areafollowing resection, mucosal scarring, or inadequatemuscle suture technique results in lip incompetence andlower incisor “show”
  10. 10. Lip reconstruction The depressor labii inferioris (quadratus) arises from the lowerborder of the mandible between the symphysis and the mentalforamen. The fibers pass upward and medially, interminglingsuperiorly and more medially with the orbicularis oris. This muscledisplaces the lower lip inferiorly. The depressor anguli oris(triangularis) arises inferior to the quadratus muscle and continuesupward to the modiolus. At its origin, the muscle mingles with theplatysma fibers. It functions to help draw the angle of the mouthdownward and laterally.
