Surgery

Babies born with a cleft will need repair surgery to close the gap left by the tissue not coming together in the womb. Usually, a cleft lip will be repaired at 3-6 months a cleft palate will be repaired at 10-18 month.

One or more follow up procedures may be needed once the lip and/or palate repairs have healed including:

Additional surgery to help with speech(pharyngoplasty). When the gum is involved, Alveolar Bone Graft procedure at 7-12 years may be needed. Teenagers may also need:

  • Rhinoplasty to change the shape and/or function of nose
  • Restorative dental surgery, such as implants, to improve the appearance of missing or misshapen teeth.

Rhinoplasty

“A well mended harelip would pass unnoticed at a cocktail party are it not for the nose” (Gillies, 1966). Without an intervention to correct the nasal deformity in a unilateral complete cleft lip nasal deformity, nasal architecture can progress to an exaggerated deformity. We present the results of a modified unilateral cleft rhinoplasty procedure, “The Gujrat Approach”, to correct this deformity.
