Cleft Rhinoplasty

 

Cleft Rhinoplasty

Clefting of the lip almost invariably involves the nose, where the rim of the nose is often malpositioned.  In addition, the septum is often deviated causing obstruction and decreases passage of air through the nose.  A remodeling of the  tip of the nose (tip rhinoplasty) can be offered at any time to help improve the appearance.  A full cleft septorhinoplasty is performed at skeletal maturity and involves correction  of the complete deformity as well as the airway.
