Cleft Lip and Palate Repair

Correcting Abnormal Development

Cleft lip and palate repair surgically corrects abnormal development, restoring function to the lips and mouth and producing a more normal appearance.

How should I prepare for my child's cleft lip and palate repair?

Prior to your child's surgery, your plastic surgeon will discuss with you:

  • Pre-surgical considerations, diagnostic testing and medications
  • Day-of-surgery instructions and medications
  • Specific information related to the use of anesthesia
  • Postoperative care and follow-up

Your plastic surgeon will also discuss where your child's procedure will be performed. Initial cleft lip and cleft palate repair is generally performed in a hospital setting and most commonly requires overnight admission.
