My Cleft Treatment Timeline

This is my treatment timeline of all the procedures I've had as a cleft lip and palate patient. From the initial repair as a baby; my bone graft, braces and false teeth during my teenage years; to finally my jaw surgery, nose reconstruction surgery and lip reconstruction surgery as a young adult. Whilst reading this, I hope you find my story helpful, but please remember that every cleft patient is different, and that each baby born with a cleft lip and/or palate will have a different treatment path (no matter how similar ours may look). Please have a click through the images below to explore my treatment journey.
