Cleft Lip/Nasal Surgery

Hi Dr Harris

I first want to say that I really appreciate the different approach you take for people of color and not utilizing an alleged universal approach. I wanted to ask you a question. I am an African American young 24 year old female interested in reconstructive surgery of my nose. I have a cleft lip and it has left me with a misshapen nose, particularly on the left side. Is this something I need to direct to cleft lip specialists only?

Hi Keisha,

I encourage you to seek out a rhinoplasty specialist who also has experience with cleft lip and repair. Not all cleft lift/repair surgeons have expertise with adult cosmetic rhinoplasty.

I hope this helps,
