Lip Tie Effect, The Membrane Under The Lip Of The Lower Or Upper Jaw?
In the morning, yesterday I was just from dsa and he said my son had upper lip tie grades 4. And had to have surgery to make breastfeeding easier. I want to ask, is there any harm or effect as an adult if my child is not operated on. Apart from the extra effect it has for breastfeeding, are there any other effects from this grade 4 upper lip tie?
Hello Mrs. Monica,
Lip tie, or the presence of a membrane under the lip of the lower jaw or upper jaw greatly interferes with the movement of the lips. This makes it difficult for the baby to breastfeed properly because it can only suck on the nipple, not the entire areola. This condition then causes the baby to feel dissatisfied with breastfeeding and is at risk of developing growth problems because of not getting enough nutrition. In addition, if the lip tie is left alone, it will also cause the child to experience speech delays.
for that, please reconsider the size of the benefits if you decide to perform or reject the operation, ma'am,
