Cleft lip and palate are deformities that occur in the upper lip and roof of a child. These are congenital conditions that occur right from the birth of the child; it can cause distortion of the nose, lips and also causes misalignment in the upper jaw of the mouth. Any one of the condition may occur or both the condition may be present simultaneously. Infants with this condition need to be provided treatment at the earliest, reconstructing has to be done to make the lip look normal.

 

The main cause for cleft lip and cleft palate still remains to be a mystery; however there are few reasons that include defective genes, vitamin deficiency, viral illness, etc. Moreover alcohol consumption during pregnancy is also considered to be one of the causes for deformities during birth.

 

Lack of folic acid is also results in cleft and craniofacial deformities. If the conceived woman fails to take folic acid during the first 3 months then it can lead to various side effects. Based upon a recent research it has been found that the risk can increase more than 4 times if folic acid is not taken during the initial period. Next common reason is smoking when pregnant; even passive smoking can lead to congenital defects and affect the child in womb.

 

If the problem is not fixed at the earliest it can cause problems like speech abnormality, impaired hearing, dental and orthodontic issues along with mental trauma and stress at a later age.

 

The surgery needs to be done with the help of an experienced cosmetic surgeon. Reconstructive surgeryNorth Carolinaprovides treatment for cleft lip and palate treatment.

 

During the procedure plate is built inside the mouth of the child.  Crooked lips is corrected to its original shape, the growing bones are also aligned perfectly to make sure that it does not get misaligned during growth.

 

 Normally the cleft lip procedure is done within a minimum of 7 to 15 days after the birth of the baby. It is a challenging process and during the procedure the nasal defect is rectified perfectly by enhancing the look of the nose.

 

Infants with these cleft lips face feeding problem and they may need specially designed feeders to feed them. It is good to fix the cleft problem as early as possible because as the child grows it would become difficult to perform the procedure. Reconstructive surgery North Carolina offers various types of surgery procedures and they have highly experienced surgeons to fix deformities.

 

Discuss with the cosmetic surgeon before performing the procedure, the right time to perform the surgery is between 2 to 3 months of age. Normally the surgeon waits until the infant attains 10 weeks of age or reaches a minimum weight of at least 10 pounds.
