Cleft Lip/Cleft Palate Repair
Cleft Lip and Cleft Palate Repair at LeBeau Clinic in Pensacola, FL
Cleft lip (cheiloschisis) and cleft palate (palatoschisis) are among the most common birth defects affecting children in North America.
The incomplete formation of the upper lip (cleft lip) or roof of the mouth (cleft palate) can occur individually, or both defects may occur together. The conditions can vary in severity and may involve one or both sides of the face.
Surgery to correct cleft lip or cleft palate deformities are extremely complex and challenging. Surgeons must receive specialized training in order to perform these surgeries. The deformity can result in severe visible asymmetries, as well as internal nasal problems, such as abnormal septa and turbinates. Patients may also have significant amounts of scar tissue from previous surgeries, presenting an additional challenge to the doctor. Located in Pensacola Florida, Dr. Jacque P. LeBeau is highly experienced in correcting nasal problems and improving the shape of the nose. His years of training and experience give him the expertise required to correct cleft lip nose deformities.
