Medical Options

Now you are an adult, and not in the system, you can still pursue further medical treatments yourself. It’s at this time you may decide you require some further support – if so, you can self-refer back to your local cleft clinic.

Possible options

  • Cosmetic surgery could be used to further refine your appearance 
  • You may want to discuss starting your own family with a geneticist
  • Dental work may be required
  • A Speech Language Therapist could help you with any speech issues
  • You may need to talk to someone about how you feel about yourself

Please refer to our Cleft Clinic list.
