What Is Cleft Lip?

Surgeries Required For The Cleft Lip

The treatment for the cleft lip begins within infancy and lasts longer than childhood. The child may need two or more two surgeries to repair completely depending upon their condition how severe they are

These surgeries may last from the period from childhood to the teenager up to the age of 18. In the initial surgeries, the first preventive measures are taken as creating the functional palate first and then the chance to fill the ear with fluid to reduce any long-term damage. Likewise, the surgeries are performed until the baby is fully treated and overcomes all the speech and hearing issues, and the dental straightening is done by using the braces.

Hence, with our surgeons’ efforts and professionalism, this defect can be overcome.


What are the complications and the potential risk of the surgery?

Modern surgery is relatively safe, and there are higher chances of complete betterment, but there might be the case that the one side of the mouth and nose might not match with the other side of the mouth and nose. So that might look odd.

What do we need to do before the surgery is performed?

Before the surgery, these things are discussed: the amount and type of anesthesia used, complications, risk, the cost, and what to avoid before the surgery.
