Cleft Lip and Palate
It is a type of congenital deformity of the lip and palate where the various parts fail to fuse. This type of deformity is sometimes referred to as a cleft. Cleft lip is usually treated at the age of 3 months. Cleft palate is treated at the age of 1 year. Other congenital anomalies must be ruled out before undertaking the procedure.
Defects of the Ear
The ear may be congenitally absent, rudimentary or cup shaped. If it is absent, the new ear is preferably constructed at the age of 6 years.
It is made from the costal cartilage (cartilage of the ribs). The final appearance requires 3-4 operations.
Post Burn Deformities
There can be contracture formation after burns. These may restrict movement in addition to looking ugly. The contractures are surgically released and grafting of the raw areas is done.
