Versatile and Effective Cleft Lip and Cleft Palate Surgery

Dr. Sean Boutros, the chief plastic surgeon at the plastic surgery center is well-known for his skill and compassion. He and his support team can successfully treat both unilateral and bilateral cases of the congenital deformities with maximum safety and minimal scarring.

The first course of action that would be adopted for cleft lip correction is NAM (Nasal Alveolar Molding) or preoperative adjustment. The three objectives of this surgery are:

• Proper alignment of the upper jaw's cleft divisions
• Getting the cleft's edges in closer proximity to each other to enable more precise repair
• To start adjustment of the nasal distortion to ensure a more normal looking nose

The center's cleft palate surgery aims at fulfilling the following three goals:

• Development of a working palate
• Reducing the likelihood of fluid accruing in the middle ears
• To facilitate the correct formation of the child's facial bones and teeth
