Congenital double lip is rare and usually involves the upper lip. Apart from a deformity that interferes with speech and mastication, operation may also be indicated for cosmetic reasons. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the results of the operative treatment of congenital maxillary double lip during the period from July 2008 to October 2010. All patients were treated surgically in our hospital. We used an elliptical excision of the mucosal excess. The results were esthetically satisfactory.
