Whether The Voice Will Improve After Cleft Lip Surgery?
Hello, the impact of the cleft lip is the difficulty in communicating with a very loud or unclear voice. Then, can the voice come back clear and no longer confused?
Hello Sayyidatun, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com
Cleft lip (cleft lip) and cleft palate (cleft palate) are among the most common birth defects. The occurrence of cleft lip and cleft palate can indeed cause complications in the form of speech disorders, respiratory problems, eating disorders, hearing disorders, dental growth disorders, and so on. Surgery for cleft lip and cleft palate repair is recommended to be done as soon as the child is 18 months old so that there is no significant disturbance in the child's growth and development.
If you want to do cleft lip and cleft palate repair surgery in adulthood, your voice will certainly improve too. However, you will certainly need to familiarize yourself with this new condition. You will need further therapy in the form of speech therapy to help train the muscles in your mouth and larynx to speak properly. Consult with the doctor who treats you about the continuation of speech therapy and where you can do it.
So much information from me, hopefully it will be enough to answer
