Before & after

There are different names given to the cleft lip according to its location and how much of the lip is involved. A cleft on one side of the lip that does not extend into the nose is called unilateral incomplete. A cleft on one side of the lip that extends into the nose is called unilateral complete. See examples of unilateral clefts » 

A cleft that involves both sides of the lip and extends into and involves the nose is called bilateral complete. See examples of bilateral clefts » 

Our gallery includes photographs of patients throughout their progress, boys and girls, from newborns to toddlers.
