Cleft Lip Repair

Clefts are extremely variable: some are narrow, others are wide. They can occur on one or both sides of the mouth and some impact the nose and palate as well as the lip. Their size and type impact the facial muscles. That’s why we take an individual approach to repairing cleft lips, so we can restore facial movement as well as appearance through several surgeries in the first two years of life as your child grows. This multi-step approach continues to deliver outstanding results in both look of nose, lips and face as well as function for children born with clefts of all sizes and types. Others may never know your child had a cleft lip.
