Background: Patients seeking correction of dental or dentofacial deformities also present with concomitant soft tissue deformities like decreased lip length, increased or decreased lip thickness, inadequate vermillion show etc. Correction of skeletal or dental deformities alone may not achieve appreciable results unles s a focus is made on the correction of soft tissue deformities during the treatment planning. Soft tissue deformities that exist with the skeletal or dental deformities may be self-corrected by Orthognathic surgery/Orthodontics or combination of both. But in many situations adjuvant procedures to the perioral structures may need to be performed to get the optimal overall results. This can be accomplished by dermal fillers, Botulinum Toxin A injections or by surgical soft tissues procedures.
