Cleft Lip and Palate are the most common congenital abnormalities of the orofacial structures. Along with the cosmetic problems, there may be associated feeding problems, speech problems and dental anomalies. Cleft Repair Surgeries are aimed at restoring the normal anatomy. The aesthetic and cosmetic outcome is a major determinant of the success of Cleft repair surgeries. We hereby present five pictorial cases of Cleft Lip and/or Palate who have undergone Repair surgeries at our institution, with their corresponding long-term cosmetic outcomes.
