Background: Minor true hare lip is rare central midline deficiency of the upper lip. There are multiple techniques but little consensus on the preferred surgical technique. Materials And Methods: A transoral approach for repair using mucosal V-Y plasty is described by employing a vertical inverted V incision. Result: The contour of the free labial border immediately improves with avoidance of skin scar. Conclusions: The midline cleft lip notch or minor true (hare lip) midline clefts can be effectively treated by mucosal lengthening using a V-Y plasty. Moreover, the ability to augment the tubercle with mucosa through a VY plasty is simple and easy.
