Pediatric Plastic and Craniofacial Surgery

“As a dad to my three kids, I understand the importance of earning the trust of patients and their parents, and I aim to create a relationship based on compassionate care and expert technical skill. Patient safety and well-being is a priority, and I will never perform any procedure on a child unless it is in his or her best interest.”
– Dr. Evan Beale

About Cleft Lip and Palate

Cleft lip and palate are the most common craniofacial anomlies and one of the most common birth defects. About 1 in 600 – 800 births in the United States involves cleft lip and/or palate. These babies can have anywhere from a small line or notch in the lip, to a groove that runs into the roof of the mouth. There is also commonly a misshapen, malformed nose that not only affects a child’s appearance, but also the ability to breath normally. Additional craniofacial conditions can be associated with cleft lip and palate and can include:

Sleep apnea, ear disease and/or malformation (microtia), dental problems, orthodontic problems requiring jaw surgery, chronic ear infections, speech disorders, airway obstruction, difficulty feeding and gaining weight, and hearing loss
