I have odd shaped breasts. With being born with a cleft lip and nose and lip, is it part of the congenital effect?

Breast deformity is not typically associated with cleft lip
The breast and face have different regions of embryonic development. The breast develops at the embryonic milk lines between the fore and hind limbs. This association of breast and limbs explains why errors in development of the breast can be associated with anomalies of the the extremities such as the shoulder and hands (Poland's syndrome). Facial development arises at a different region in the cranial region of the embryo of the first and second arches. Nonsyndromal Cleft lip is not associated with breast and limb anomalies.
A consultation with a plastic surgeon is the best source of advice. Best wishes.
