Cleft Lip And Palate Repair: Q&AAsk a Question
37 Yr Old, Would Like Continuing Nostril and Upper Cleft Lip Repair, Is This a Possibility?
Born with bilateral cleft lip and palette,10 surgeries since birth including 3 bone graft attempts. Last graft was semi-successful with bone taken from skull. Also had cartilage taken from ears to revise nose and create more of a tip (very flat before) Q: gaping holes of the nostrils due to having no nostril sill, can this be fixed/created/manufactured in some way or from some other part of me? Also the flatness of upperlip. Can ANYTHING be done about either of these? PS Scared of abbe flap
