Cleft lip and palate is a common congenital deformity affecting around 1 in 700 children across the world. A cleft lip is characterized by a split in the lip while a cleft palate appears as a split in the roof of the mouth. Cleft lip and cleft palate treatment include surgery to close the gap or the hole between the roof of the mouth and nose, to reconnect palate muscles, and make the palate function effectively. The child will also need further treatment by way of speech therapy and, in some cases, follow up surgeries to make the lips appear as normal as possible.
A craniofacial disorder refers to the congenital problems affecting the face and skull and is caused either by congenital disability, disease, or trauma. Treatment must commence within the first few weeks of the infant’s life to ease the transition as a child hits various developmental milestone. Some of the common craniofacial abnormalities include simple craniosynostosis, positional plagiocephaly, and cleft palate. Any craniofacial surgery and treatment are managed under the supervision of a team of specialized professionals, including craniofacial surgeons, neurosurgeons, paediatricians, orthodontists, speech therapists, and ENT specialists.
Oral and maxillofacial surgery helps improve the function and/or appearance of the face, jaw, teeth, and mouth.

Hair loss has become a common problem affecting both men and women. In fact, men are tackling balding as early as in their 20s. Hair loss can be triggered by hormonal imbalance, a weak immune system, or metabolic diseases. Some people are genetically inclined to lose hair. It takes a well trained and experienced physician to diagnose the reason and suggest an effective remedy. Sometimes, a hair transplant may be suggested when the scalp is healthy enough, and hair loss can be managed. Unlike in the past, hair transplant procedures are now very effective and affordable as well.
