Facial defects are abnormalities or conditions that affect the structure, appearance, or function of the face. They can be present from birth (congenital) or acquired later in life due to injury, disease, or other factors. Examples of facial defects include cleft lip and palate, facial asymmetry, facial paralysis, facial scarring, craiofacial anomalies, facial tumors, and facial trauma. Treatment options for facial defects depend on the specific condition and can include surgical interventions, reconstructive procedures, cosmetic treatments, and physical therapy.
Cleft surgery is a surgical procedure performed to correct facial cleft defects, such as cleft lip and/or cleft palate. It aims to restore normal anatomy, improve function, and enhance the appearance of the affected areas. The surgery is typically performed under general anesthesia, and it involves making incisions, repositioning tissues, and suturing the cleft to close it. Cleft surgery requires a multidisciplinary approach involving a team of healthcare professionals, and it can greatly improve the quality of life for individuals with facial cleft defects.
Non-cleft surgeries refer to a wide range of surgical procedures performed on the face that are not specifically related to cleft lip or cleft palate. These surgeries may be performed for various reasons, including cosmetic enhancements, functional improvements, and medical conditions affecting the face.
