What is Cleft Lip and Palate, and how does it affect you?

Two frequent congenital birth abnormalities are cleft lip and palate. A cleft lip is a gap in the lip, whereas a cleft palate is a gap in the roof of the mouth (palate). The term “congenital” refers to a condition that exists at the moment of a child’s birth. Facial clefts can affect people of all ethnicities and are twice as prevalent in boys as they are in girls, despite the fact that cleft palates are slightly more common in girls.

Common Questions

Cleft lip repair is usually done when a child is 3 to 6 months old. Your youngster will be put under general anesthetic for cleft lip surgery (asleep and not feeling pain). The tissues will be trimmed and the lip will be stitched together by the surgeon.

Cleft lip and palate (or both) have unknown causes, while hereditary (genetic) factors may play a role in some cases. Nothing the parents did or did not do during the pregnancy causes a cleft lip or palate (or both).

A cleft palate should usually be repaired by a cleft surgeon who has received special training. This could be a plastic surgeon, a pediatric otolaryngologist (ear, nose, and throat surgeon), or someone with additional training prior to cleft and craniofacial surgery, such as maxillofacial surgeons.
