A 3-month old baby girl was brought to our hospital seeking the best possible treatment for incomplete unilateral cleft lip and palate. The parents were greatly worried about their baby girl’s present condition and also complained about the difficulty in feeding her.
Cranio-Maxillofacial Surgeon Dr. S.M. Balaji performed the primary incomplete lip repair surgery for unilateral cleft lip using Modified Millard’s technique. Following surgery, the baby appeared as any other normal baby of her age and was able to feed well. The parents were very pleased with the results.
