"As a couple, my husband and I decided to have facial enhancement surgery. Several years ago, I had a wonderful experience with Dr. Picard-Ami, trusting him with this made sense. Our challenges leaving the USA for this major event made us anxious because we speak limited Spanish and have hearing impairment issues. Dr. Picard-Ami and his associates clearly understood these issues and took great care to walk us through each part of the process. We followed all recommended after care treatments and instructions and are currently moving though the healing process nicely and are thrilled with the results. Dr. Picard-Ami is truly an accomplished surgeon and outstanding man. We, absolutely, selected the right surgeon for this life chaining event"

I have had several surgeries with Dr Silvio Sterman and I consider him a brilliant surgeon. It has been 3 years since my facelift when I tell people I have had a face lift I get compliments on how natural looking it is. Both trips to São Paulo went smoothly without any complications . On my first trip Dr Silvio did a repair tummy tuck for me which I am delighted with . I had previously had an unsatisfactory result with my first surgeon in England . What can I say the trip to São Paulo was worth every mile travelled . I was met with warmth , efficient service and great surgical skill in the hands of Dr Silvio Sterman . Without any hesitation I would return to him for any future surgery I might want.

What is Cleft Lip/Cleft Palate Repair?

A cleft palate is an opening between the roof of the mouth and the nasal cavity. The palate and the lip are independent and grow separately; however a combination of a cleft palate and a cleft lip can occur. The cleft lip appears as a narrow opening or gap in the skin of the upper lip that extends all the way to the base of the nose.

 

Both are birth defects caused in the formation period of the cranium, mouth and lips during fetal development. In both the cleft palate and the cleft lip, the opening may be on the left, the right or both sides. Cleft Lip and Cleft Palate Surgery is designed to close the gap in the palate or the lip and correct the shape and function of either or both. The objective of this procedure is to improve speech, nasal function, nursing and feeding, as well as the overall appearance.

 

A Good Candidate for Cleft Lip/Cleft Palate Repair

Children between the ages of 9 and 18 months are good candidates. It is better to wait until your child is at an age where he or she can handle the intensity of an operation, as all surgical operations may place stress on the body and requires time to heal.

 

Cleft Lip/Cleft Palate Repair Procedure

The first step is a detailed consultation with your surgeon who will determine the best method to achieving your desired end results. The surgeon makes an incision on both sides of the cleft, joining the muscle to the skin from the palate extensively all the way up to the nostril, if necessary. A second operation is typically not necessary. Cleft Lip/Cleft Palate repair is an inpatient procedure, which means that the patient stays in the hospital for a given amount of time. For this particular surgery, the patient will stay in the hospital for a total of about 7 days.

 

Average Duration of Surgery: 2 hours
