Cleft lip and cleft palate are facial deformities that are present in infants from birth. This congenital defect is caused by underdeveloped tissue in the mouth or the lip.
A cleft lip appears as a narrow gap of the upper lip. It extends backward from the base of the nose to include the bones of the upper jaw.
On the other hand, a cleft palate is an opening in the roof of the mouth. A cleft palate includes either the hard palate or the soft palate and in some instances it affects the entire palate.
Cleft lip and cleft palate can occur on one or both sides of the mouth. Individual patients can be affected by either one or both of the conditions simultaneously. When the patient is affected by both cleft lip and palate, reconstructive surgery is usually carried out between 6-12 months of age. The procedure is carried out under general anesthesia.
The gap in the roof of the mouth is closed by reconstruction of the muscles and the bones of the palate. The lip and the jaw are fabricated and sutured with dissolvable stitches.
The surgery usually takes two hours and the child may have to stay in the hospital for one to three days. Besides functionality, cosmetic concerns are kept at the forefront in any surgery of the lips and jaw.
In some cases, an additional surgery may be required at a later stage to improve the appearance and function of the lips and palate.
