A case of a 63 year old woman with microstomia caused by accidental swallowing of a chemical substance when she was a child is presented. The small mouth opening didn´t let her smile or receive dental services and decreased her life quality. She is remitted to Plastic Surgery Service, where an excision of scar contracture with W-plasty and bilateral commisuroplasty were made, improving oral opening from 2.5 to 4.8 cm and providing a better social environment and life quality.
