Cleft palate repair is a surgery which is used to repair a cleft, or hole in the palate or the roof of the mouth. The surgery is also called as cheiloplasty (KY-lo-plass-tee) is usually performed when the child is around three months old.
Craniofacial surgery is a form of surgery which is performed to correct and reconstruct malformations or problems of the skull. The surgeons usually perform the surgery when there is craniosynostosis- early closing of the spaces between the bones of the skull, which results in abnormal skull growth. If the surgeon corrects the craniosynostosis, the surgery is called cranial vault remodeling.
