Cleft Repair Before and After Photos
Photos of cleft repairs are often very encouraging to parents. We want you to see that in the hands of a skilled surgeon, your child's repaired lip and nose will look as normal as possible as your child grows. The function of the repaired lip is important, as is your child's appearance, for social development and self-esteem. Having an experience surgeon can drastically affect your child's future surgical needs and overall appearance.
Cleft palates may require more than one surgery to be repaired. Even after their palate has been repaired, some of these children have speech difficulties and require further surgery.
Having an entire team of specialists to care for your child can make this process less intimidating.
