Abstract

The bilateral cleft lip is a complex deformity involving discontinuity of the soft tissue layers of the lip and, frequently, the underlying bony structure. Satisfactory repair requires a thorough understanding of the anatomic deformity. The authors' philosophy and timing of the bilateral cleft lip repair are discussed. Details of the surgical technique are outlined.
