Abstract

BACKGROUND: As the lip contains ample blood supply, hemangiomas often occur in this area. When surgical excision is performed, wound closure is important. To prevent infection from saliva and food, watertight wound closure is needed. The purpose of this study is to demonstrate the usefulness of Dermabond for wound closure after hemangioma excision on the lip. METHODS: Between December 2015 and August 2017, 11 patients with lip hemangioma underwent surgical excision. When closing the wound, Dermabond was used for skin closure after subcutaneous sutures. Demographic data and complications were recorded. Scars were evaluated with the Vancouver scar scale (VSS), and the postoperative shape of the lip was assessed on a 10-point satisfaction scale at 1 month and 6 months postoperatively. RESULTS: All cases completely healed without any complications, such as wound dehiscence or infection. There were no recurrences at postoperative 1 month during the follow-up period. The aesthetic results of the scars were also excellent. The average VSS score on postoperative 1 month was 4.2, and it decreased to 2.2 at postoperative 6 months. The average patient satisfaction score at postoperative 1 month was 7.4, and it increased to 9.5 at postoperative 6 months. CONCLUSION: Dermabond is useful for wound closure after hemangioma excision on the lip. It prevents wound contamination, and yields acceptable aesthetic results.
