|Recontruction of the Adult Cleft Lip
• Back to Surgical Procedures main page >
Cleft lip repair and reconstruction is one of the foundations of Dr Apesos’ practice. In addition to cosmetic and adult reconstructive surgery Dr Apesos also directed the cleft lip and craniofacial clinics of the Children's Medical Center of Dayton, Ohio. His directorship position integrated the total coordination of the newborn cleft child with the team oral surgeons, otologist, otorhinolaryngoloist, Speech therapist, dentist, orthodontist, and nutritionist.
Today he treats many adult patients with scarred cleft repairs and with poorly and inadequately treated cleft lip problems who may have been originally treated in third world countries. This new venue of surgical dilemmas has created a great challenge, which is personally fulfilling with great results.
The adult cleft lip repair or revision is usually performed using a local anesthetic as an outpatient in our office surgery suite.
