Cleft Palate & Cleft Lip | Lives Transformed

Transforming Faces And Lives

Cleft lip and cleft palate is one of the most common birth anomalies in the world. When children and adults receive long-term comprehensive cleft lip and cleft palate care, their physical and psychological health improves dramatically.

A Multi-Disciplinary Approach to Cleft Lip & Cleft Palate Care

That’s why Transforming Faces uses a multi-disciplinary approach to cleft palate rehabilitation. We go beyond the cleft lip and cleft palate surgery to provide nutrition support, speech therapy, oral health, counselling and ongoing care to our patients.


  • What is cleft palate & cleft lip?

    Cleft lip and cleft palate is one of the most common birth anomalies in the world. A cleft lip or cleft palate is an opening in the baby’s upper lip and/or the roof of their mouth that occurs during pregnancy.

    Cleft lip and palate can impact a child’s appearance, speech, teeth, eating, hearing and ability to develop socially.

    Cleft lip and palate can be successfully treated using a comprehensive team approach. By this we mean, pre-surgery support and long-term post-surgery care.

    Find out how our unique approach to treating cleft lip and palate results in lasting transformation.
