Cleft Lip and Palate
How Are Facial Differences Surgically Treated?

The incomplete formation of the upper lip at birth is referred to as a cleft lip. The same defect in the roof of the mouth is known as a cleft palate, and these two craniofacial malformations are among the most common in the United States. They can occur completely or incompletely, as well as together or individually, which makes the conditions vary in severity.

A cleft lip or palate is more than just an aesthetic facial difference; they can impair a child’s ability to speak, eat, and breathe. The Plastic Surgery Clinic of Chicago has experience in hundreds of procedures to repair facial clefts. We recognize that each case is highly individualized, and that the functional aspects of this procedure are just as important as the aesthetic.
