Cleft Lips: Definition, Complications, and Treatments
A cleft lip is a birth defect that affects the upper lip to varying degrees of severity. Depending on how severe the defect is, the affected child can experience a range of physical and emotional challenges. Treatments for a cleft lip defect usually include a team of doctors and care over time.
Healthy upper lip development during pregnancy begins with lip tissue growing in separate segments. These segments are then supposed to fuse together to form the complete lip, but in the case of a cleft lip, this fusion is incomplete. This means the infant is born with a physical notch in the lip, sometimes up into the nasal area. Most often the cleft is on the left side, and occasionally can occur bilaterally – on both sides of the upper lip.


Cleft lips can be visualized during routine ultrasound exams. They may or may not be in conjunction with cleft palates (but these are not necessarily visible on ultrasound. Cleft lips may also accompany other growth abnormalities such as heart problems.


Because cleft lips can significantly separate the upper lip, they can severely impact a newborn’s ability to nurse or feed with a bottle. Lactation consultants can assist new moms with helping encourage the sucking motion, and nutritionists can help make sure that the newborn is getting enough nutrition through one method or another. Until the cleft is repaired, new moms can pump breast milk for feeding. Cleft lips can also influence speech development, and in severe cases where the cleft involves the nose and gum area, can influence breathing and dental development.


In order to treat the cleft lip, infants usually need surgery somewhere before their 6th month of life, and sometimes multiple surgeries are needed. A plastic surgeon will likely be involved to minimize the scar on the upper lip. Sometimes the baby will need pre-surgery stretching of the related tissue to prepare the area for surgical manipulation. This can improve the treatment outcome and reduce the number of overall surgeries needed. As children grow older they sometimes require additional surgeries to address scarring or scar tissue. If the gum area is involved this might require surgery when the child is about 8 or 9 years of age, before the teenage years when large growth spurts in the mouth take place.


With an early diagnosis and treatment plan, many babies can grow up with minimal permanent side effects once the surgeries and other approaches have been used. If the cleft lip is in association with a cleft palate, the implications and treatment can be more significant.
