The secondary cleft lip surgery requires a comprehensive and coordinate teamwork of plastic surgeons, dentists and dermatologists. Banobagi operates the one-stop system to resolve aesthetical and functional issues of the cleft lip in order to provide the ultimate solution for the secondary cleft lip surgery.
The deformed nose not also causes aesthetic issues but also various functional issues. Patients with deviated nasal septum may have significant breathing problems. Therefore, it should be corrected through various surgical procedures including implantation, osteotomy and autologous cartilage transplantation to resolve both aesthetic and functional issues.
Even though the cleft lip is corrected through the primary cleft lip surgery, asymmetry of the lips can be presented. During the secondary cleft lip surgery, all the factors causing deformities should be corrected in one attempt. Also, the dental treatments should be administered together to create more satisfactory outcomes.
There are many cases that even after the primary cleft lip surgery, some part of the cleft lip and palate may not be completely corrected or there are remaining scars and deformity. Therfore, Banobagi offers a wide variety of secondary cleft lip surgical techniques, such as fat graft, skin transplantation, re-suturing, rhinoplasty and facial countouring surgery to guarantee a successful outcome.
