Traumatic injuries to the lower third of the face can result in damage to various vital structures. We report a case of traumatically avulsed Stenson's duct and facial vein wherein the vein was used as a free graft to lengthen the duct. The paper highlights the need on how best to utilise the locally available and viable tissues as free grafts.
