Most squamous cell carcinomas (SCCs) of the lower lip develop after actinic cheilitis (AC).1 Therefore, appropriate and efficient treatment of AC is important to prevent invasive carcinoma development. Vermilionectomy is a safe and effective option in the treatment of premalignant lesions such as AC, even in microinvasive SCC, owing to its easy application and excellent cosmetic results.2,3 We aimed to investigate the effectiveness of vermilionectomy and wedge resection in SCC and AC of the lower lip.
