Cleft Rhinoplasty in Dallas, TX
What Is Cleft Rhinoplasty?
Cleft lip and palate is a common birth defect that occurs when the facial structure does not fully develop as intended during gestation. While corrective surgery during infancy usually allows children to live healthy lives, functional and cosmetic issues with the nose may linger into adolescence and adulthood. Cleft rhinoplasty is a nasal reconstruction surgery that aims to improve nasal issues caused by cleft lip and cleft palate deformities. Cleft rhinoplasty is a very complicated surgery, so if you have issues with your nose and are a former cleft lip and palate repair patient, it’s imperative to find an experienced plastic surgery group like Sage Plastic Surgery Group. Contact our Dallas, TX facility for more information about cleft rhinoplasty and to schedule a consultation.
How Is Cleft Rhinoplasty Surgery Performed?
Cleft rhinoplasty is an outpatient surgery that is conducted under general anesthesia. Usually, the open rhinoplasty technique is used, with an incision made between nostrils so the top strip of skin can be pulled back. The underlying bone, tissue, and cartilage will subsequently be modified or augmented based on your aesthetic and functional goals and where your cleft lip and palate occurred during fetal development and infancy. The procedure typically takes 2.5 – 3 hours to complete and is often performed in conjunction with a cleft lip revision surgery. For more in-depth information about how this intricate surgery is performed, please contact Sage Plastic Surgery Group today.
