Secondary Correction of a Cleft Lip

Published on November 4, 2016 by

Many people suffer from a cleft lip. Children find it especially difficult, as peers can be cruel. Surgery can restore the appearance and function of the lip with satisfactory results, but it does not always work satisfactorily.

In some cases, after surgery, asymmetries and deformities can still persist in children and toddlers, making the child feel isolated or different. In these cases, secondary correction is required.

Dr. Virender Singhal is a board-certified plastic surgeon who has performed over 1,500 cleft lip procedures, highlighting his expertise and skill dealing with the condition. Dr. Singhal provides his patients with normal lip and nose function for life.
