Dr Nowsheeba Khurshid, Dr. Nidhi Puri, Dr Archana Goel

Abstract :

Introduction: The study comprises lower lip morphometry of 300 North Indian Adults (150 males and 150 females). Aims and Objectives : To create a baseline data of various linear & vertical measurements of upper lip ,this standard serves as a guideline for sexual dimorphism, racial dimorphism as well as restoration or enhancement of esthetic and plastic surgeries of lips . Materials and Method : Digital Vernial Calliper was used . Rt chelion-Labiale inferior (chr-li), Lt chelion-Labiale inferior (chl-li), Vertical height of cutaneous lower lip (sl-li), height of upper vermilion (li-sto).The measurements were statistically analysed using t test by SPSS. Results :All the lower lip parameters showed sexual dimorphism and were higher in males. Height of cutaneous lower lip is less than the height of lower vermilion. Conclusion: The analysis shows sexual dimorphism in most of the parameters of lower lips being greater in males .Racial dimorphism was seen.
