Who Is a Candidate for Cleft Lip Revision Surgery?

Dr. Sundine will review your medical history and closely examine the appearance of your lip to determine if you are a good candidate for cleft lip revision surgery. The lip repair may be under rotated and Cupid’s bow may be uneven. Some patients have a whistling deformity or a poor quality of scarring that they would like improved. There may also be an imbalance between the size of the upper lip and the lower lip.

While determining your candidacy, Dr. Sundine will also talk to you about your aesthetic concerns and what can be done to give you the lips that you want.

The Cleft Lip Revision Procedure in Newport Beach

The approach to revision of the cleft lip is going to be dependent on the problem identified in the lip. The procedure may be as simple as a revision of the scars from the repair. More complex deformities may require the lip to be taken apart and then reassembled. Occasionally, the lip may need to be augmented to achieve balance with the other lip. The exact procedure will be reviewed carefully based on your examination and specific needs.

Recovering from Cleft Lip Revision

Recovering from cleft lip revision will not be very different from your previous experience. After surgery, your face will feel sore and you will have some surgical dressings. Dr. Sundine will provide you with aftercare instructions, as well as medicine to keep you comfortable during the first 10 days. You will be able to return to your daily activities within one to two weeks, during which time you will see Dr. Sundine on a regular basis. As with your primary procedure, the results of this surgery will become evident over time.

    “He truly deserved the highest reviews on every level”

    I gave Dr. Sundine the highest possible review in each category because he truly deserved the highest reviews on every level. I am a very well recognized lawyer on the West Coast. My firm has spent millions of dollars on television advertising in which I appear. I could not afford to have a bad face lift or even for people to notice I had a face lift at all. I interviewed many physicians including some of the “celebrity” physicians. Ultimately, I chose Dr. Sundine because he performs highly complex complete facial reconstruction procedures on children.

    “Special thank you to Dr. Sundine! So happy!!”

    My keloid surgery was an absolute success. I am so pleased with the results and grateful to the staff pre & post surgery. I was so nervous and scared to precede w/ the procedure. For I never had a surgery or general anesthesia before.:(

    Dr. Sundine with his exceeding professionalism gave me gentle kind assurance that all will be fine. In addition, educated me to his full knowledge and experience in detail what to expect. I felt safe and secure in his hands. Very kind soul. Post surgery I had radiation at another location, and it was a success. I am still in the healing process and my ear aesthetically looks next to perfect. I’m free of the disfigurement and I have a renewed confidence keloid Free!! :-)

    It was like 1 2 3!!

    “THE RESULTS NOTHING SHORT OF EXCEPTIONAL”

    I chose Dr. Sundine because he is an expert in a highly regarded surgical technique that delivers a completely natural result. It takes longer on the operating table and it requires specialized training which many doctors just don’t want to invest in. The results, however, are nothing short of spectacular.
