Maxillofacial Surgeon Dr. S.M. Balaji skillfully corrected the alveolar cleft defect and macrostomia in a single surgery. Alveolar cleft defect was closed with miracle protein rhBMP-2 and macrostomia was corrected by approximating the adjacent facial muscles. The defect was closed in layers and the lip was made more natural by maintaining the height and contour using the vermillion return flap technique.
The girl’s parents felt very happy as both large mouth and cleft repair surgery was combined and post operatively scars were very less.
