Congenital maxillary double lip is a rare anomaly in which a fold of redundant labial tissue becomes apparent at rest or while smiling. This might pose cosmetic or functional problems, as well as serious impact on psychological well-being, especially when it affects young children or adolescents. The treatment of choice is surgical excision. This paper presents a successfully managed case of maxillary double lip using elliptical incision under local anesthesia in a 15-year-old female patient.
