Cleft Rhinoplasty Basics

What is Cleft Rhinoplasty?

 Cleft Rhinoplasty is a specialized surgical procedure focused on correcting nasal deformities in individuals born with a cleft lip and palate. A cleft lip and palate is a congenital condition where there is an opening or split in the upper lip and/or roof of the mouth. This condition can also affect the nasal structure and lead to asymmetry, malformation, or functional issues of the nose.

Cleft Rhinoplasty focuses on reshaping and reconstructing the nasal anatomy to improve both aesthetic appearance and functional breathing. By addressing the unique challenges presented by cleft lip and palate anatomy, this procedure aims to enhance facial symmetry, restore nasal function, and improve overall quality of life for patients.

Who are the best candidates for the Cleft Rhinoplasty procedure?

The best candidates for Cleft Rhinoplasty are individuals born with a cleft lip and palate who hope to address the function and appearance of their nasal deformities. This procedure is suitable for patients who have completed their facial growth, typically around late adolescence or early adulthood.

All candidates should also have realistic expectations about the outcome of their procedure and a desire to enhance the symmetry and aesthetics of their noses. Overall, candidates should be in good physical and mental health, with no underlying medical conditions that could affect surgery or recovery.

What are the benefits of Cleft Rhinoplasty?

Cleft Rhinoplasty offers numerous benefits for individuals born with a cleft lip and palate, addressing both aesthetic concerns and functional issues associated with nasal deformities. Here are some key benefits:

  • Improved Nasal Symmetry: Cleft Rhinoplasty aims to restore balance and symmetry to the nasal structure to create a well-balanced facial appearance.
  • Enhanced Facial Aesthetics: By reshaping the nose, this procedure can improve the proportions of your facial aesthetics, boosting confidence and self-esteem.
  • Functional Improvement: Cleft Rhinoplasty can correct breathing difficulties and nasal obstruction caused by cleft lip and palate deformities, allowing for easier breathing and improved airflow.
  • Customizable: Every Cleft Rhinoplasty procedure is tailored to the unique anatomical features and needs of each of our individual patients to ensure personalized results that align with their goals and expectations.

What to expect on the day of Cleft Rhinoplasty surgery

On the day of your Cleft Rhinoplasty surgery at Cohn Plastic Surgery, you will arrive at the surgical facility, where you will be greeted by our friendly staff and prepared for the procedure. You will then meet with Dr. Cohn and the surgical team to review your treatment plan and address any last-minute questions or concerns.

Before the surgery begins, you will receive anesthesia to ensure your comfort throughout the procedure. Once you are sedated, Dr. Cohn will perform advanced, precise surgical techniques to address the cleft nasal deformity and achieve your dream results. The length of the surgery varies but typically takes several hours to complete, depending on the complexity of the case.

Afterward, you will be monitored in a recovery area until you are fully awake and stable. Dr. Cohn will provide detailed post-operative instructions and arrange for follow-up appointments to closely monitor your healing progress.

Cleft Rhinoplasty recovery

After the procedure, you may experience swelling, bruising, and discomfort around the nose and surgical site. Dr. Jason Cohn will provide specific post-operative instructions to help manage these symptoms and promote a smooth recovery process. It is essential to keep the head elevated and avoid strenuous activities during the initial days following surgery.

Patients typically wear a nasal splint or cast for about one to two weeks to protect the nose and support proper healing. As the swelling subsides and the tissues settle, you will gradually notice improvements in the appearance and function of the nose.

It is crucial to attend all scheduled follow-up appointments with Dr. Cohn to monitor your progress and address any concerns throughout the recovery period to ensure optimal healing and results. With proper care and patience, most patients can expect to see significant improvements in their nasal appearance and breathing function as you begin to heal and any swelling subsides.
