What Is Cleft and Craniofacial Surgery?

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.

Which Medical Conditions Are Treated At Yashoda Hospital Under Cleft and Craniofacial Surgery Unit?

We treat a variety of conditions under the Cleft and Craniofacial Surgery Unit involving several syndromes associated with malformations of face and skull such as:

  • Cleft lip
  • Cleft palate
  • Craniofacial anomalies
    • Hypertelorism (unusually increased distance between eyes)
    • Craniosynostosis (a deformity of the skull)
    • Disproportionate jaws (a deformity of the jaw)
    • Midface deformities (a deformity of the midface)
      • Retrusion
      • Protrusion
    • Microsomia (a deformity of chin like small or big chin)
  • Asymmetry of face

What Are the Various Types of Procedures Used for Cleft and Craniofacial Surgery?

Some of the significant process used under cleft and craniofacial surgery involves:

  • Free Flap Reconstructive Craniofacial Surgery: The surgeons use the process to reconstruct, after the treatment for congenital and acquired deformities. With early recovery and a high cure rate, this surgery has better cosmetic outcomes.
  • Microsurgical Replantation: This surgery is used for surgically reattaching a finger, hand or arm that has been completely cut off from a person’s body. The surgery helps the patient with as much ability to gain as much use of the injured part as possible. Our unit at Yashoda Hospital is equipped with high-end surgical equipment that are used to replant ear, skull, hand or other body parts with a greater success rate.
  • Tissue Expansion: We use the latest advanced treatment for reconstructive surgery. This technique allows the normal skin to expand and cure congenital and post-trauma defects of the body.

What to Expect During the Surgery?

  • The child cleft palate and craniofacial surgery will be performed by renowned plastic surgeons. The child will be put under general anesthesia, and thus they feel no pain and discomfort.
  • The doctor will provide advice as to what to eat and what not to eat and drink before the surgery.
