15. Lip shaving of leukoplakia of the vermilion border by means of rapid pulsed timedsurgical cutting
This patient, a heavy smoker, has had a white thickened patch on the vermilion border of the lower lip for 18 months.
Owing to the size, position and gravity of this precancerous lesion, we have decided to carry out lip shaving by means of rapid pulsed timedsurgical cutting.
After marking the center of the vermilion, we outline the area of the precancerous lesion. Excision will be extended up to the labial commissures on both sides.
