A cleft lip is a condition that affects about one in every seven hundred live births. It can affect the appearance and ability of a child to eat, speak, and breathe. Cleft lip repair is a surgical procedure that can restore the functionality and normal appearance of the cleft lip nasal deformity. Cleft lip repair is a procedure that is usually performed three months after a child’s birth. Nasal splints are used to reduce scarring and preserve the appearance of the nose. A cleft lip may be repaired in children, teens and adults. Dr. Michael Sundine is a board-certified plastic surgeon who has special expertise in cleft lip repair.
