Cleft Lip and Cleft Palate

Cleft lips come in many shapes and sizes. A child can have a cleft on one side of the lip (unilateral) or on both sides of the lip (bilateral). The cleft lip can extend all the way to nose (complete cleft lip) or to skin below nose (incomplete cleft lip). A child may also have one type of cleft lip on one side and a different kind of cleft on the other side. Every infant is unique.
