Cleft Lip and Palate Surgery
Cleft lip and palate occurs when a baby’s lip and palate do not form properly during pregnancy. It is a common birth defect that can be repaired through surgical treatment. To repair the cleft lip and palate, our surgeon may create incisions on either side of the cleft and stitch muscle and skin tissue together. This closes the cleft on the lip and palate, recreating a regular lip, nose, and palate anatomy.
