However, in nowadays a tread of increasing amounts of such patients in plastic surgery treatment is mostly due to aesthetic demand.  
Plastic surgery for treatment gingival recession is generally considered to be a challenge in surgical technique, however, relevant indication and periodontal pre-and post-operative care is essential for clinical successful outcome. Therefore ny morphological alteration of marginal gingiva for esthetical and functional demands requires the precise surgical design and technique.
