Cleft lip and palate
What is Cleft Lip and Palate Surgery?
Some children are born with an opening or a split in the palate(upper part of the inside of the mouth) and the lip or both. Children with these defects face a lot of problems while speaking, eating and even the appearance of the patient is compromised.The surgery that corrects this defect and enables the patient to speak and eat properly is termed as cleft lip and palate surgery.
When does one need this?
When a child is suffering from a cleft in the lip or palate or both, the best age to get it treated is when the child is under 1 year. This is done only after an extensive medical assessment of the child. Standard and 3D x-rays are needed before the cleft palate treatment can be planned and started.
How long does it take?
Generally a single stage surgery is needed for this and a healing period of a few months follows.
