Seoul, South Korea (PRWEB UK) 30 March 2013
Increase in enquiry and request for cleft lip repair prompted Seoul TouchUp to include cleft lip surgery into their portfolio. The customer-focussed company is pleased to be able to offer patrons cleft lip surgery (cheiloplasty) to treat this congenital deformity.
According to data obtained from the World Health Organization International Collaborative Research on Craniofacial Anomalies, cleft lip occurs in approximately 1 in 750-1000 live births. Although the ratios vary considerably across geographic areas and ethnic groups, clefting is more prevalent in Asians and certain groups of Native American decent. Africans and African Americans have the lowest incidence of cleft lip deformity.
A cleft lip is a physical split in one or both sides of the lip to give a narrow opening or gap in the upper lip. This condition occurs in the early development of the baby inside the mother when the left and right sides of the face and the roof of the mouth fail to fuse together correctly, leaving a gap in the upper lip. The opening can be on one side or on both sides of the face. In more severe cases, a cleft lip can extend to the base of the nose to expose both oral and nasal cavities. Cosmetic repair to a cleft lip significantly improves quality of life and at the same time it restores function and a more normal appearance.
