A Baby with Unilateral Cleft Lip and Palate

A 3-month old baby boy born with unilateral cleft lip & palate was brought to our hospital by his parents seeking the best treatment for cleft lip and palate. The parents were greatly disturbed on seeing their firstborn son’s condition.

Primary cleft lip repair

Maxillofacial Surgeon Dr. S.M. Balaji performed the primary repair surgery for unilateral cleft lip using Modified Millard’s technique. Following surgery, the baby appeared to be like any other baby of his age with minimal to no scar. The parents were overjoyed with the results. Consecutively cleft palate correction surgery will be done at a later date.
