Cleft Lip-Secondary Repair

  • Cleft Lip-Secondary Repair
  • Cleft Lip-Secondary Repair

Description of Disability:

Residual deformities after cleft lip repair can range widely from wide scars, stepping of cleft margins, gross asymmetry, a furrow (marking the absence of a muscle repair across the cleft), and whistling deformity. Correction ranges from scar reductions to realignment of the Cupid's bow or correction of a whistling deformity of the vermilion. Sometimes a redo muscle repair is necessary to achieve symmetry of motion in mouth closure, smiling, talking, and drinking.

Treatment:

Most corrections can be done under local anesthesia as a day procedure.

Post Operative Care: 

Stitches are removed after a week.
