Age Limit For Cleft Lip Surgery?
Excuse me. I want to ask. I used to have a swing lip disease when I was born. I have been operated but the results are perfect. My question is this. Can I still be operated again, but my age is almost 22 years
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
What do you mean by swing lip is a cleft lip? Basically, plastic surgery can be done at any age as long as your health condition allows surgery. On a heavy cleft lip (which causes breathing problems and eating disorders, has the potential to cause speech problems), surgery is done as early as possible while still a baby / toddler. But if you have already performed a repair operation but the shape is not perfect, then you can do the surgery again to perfect the shape anytime you want. Even at the age of 22, plastic surgery can be performed.
It is best to check with a plastic surgeon to plan your next lip operation. If it is needed (for example, you still have a speech disorder), then you can also be referred for speech therapy to improve your speech disorder.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
