Cleft and lip palate are developmental defects of the upper lip and roof of the mouth that are present at birth (congenital malformations). Cleft lip and cleft palate repair, in Mexico City, is surgery to fix birth defects of the upper lip and palate (roof of the mouth).
Cleft lip and cleft palate occur in about 1 or 2 of every 1,000 babies born in the United States each year, making it one of the most common major birth defects.
The good news is that both cleft lip and cleft palate are treatable. Most kids born with these can have surgery to repair these defects within the first 12-18 months of life.
Cleft lip and cleft palate are openings or splits in the upper lip, the roof of the mouth (palate) or both.
At Plastic Surgery Telich for Infants and Children, we provide compassionate care for children with congenital disorders and birth defects. Cleft lip and cleft palate deformities can be successfully corrected through advanced surgical techniques.
