Rhinoplasty for cleft lip?

Hi xiao111,
Unfortunately, photos are not provided for evaluation, but generally, cleft lip nose may present with any or all of the following conditions: collapsed and deformed alars on one or both sides, asymmetric nostrils, undefined tip, low profile or twist bridge, and depressed floor of the nostrils; all these possibilities may be improved by reconstructive surgery using rib, ear, or septal cartilage, depending on the degree of deformity.
