We present a 52-year-old lady who had lip atrophy with tissue loss in her lower lip (middle segment) not due to age, but due to her occupation. She is a beautician by occupation and doing lip threading for her clients and for herself since last 20 years. On examination we found middle segment of lower lip atrophied, damaged and inverted due to threading. Rest of the lip segment (upper and lower lips) was atrophied due to age. So, we treated not only the middle segment with tissue loss but also the atrophied segments in both upper and lower lip so as to get an overall fuller lip with eversion especially of lower lip segment. We hereby report a case of lip atrophy with tissue loss due to occupational injury managed successfully with dermal fillers. This is probably the first documented case for this indication.
