Key words: cleft lip and palate, correction, camouflage of congenital defects
Preparations containing hyaluronic acid (HA) have been available on the medical market for over 20 years and are successfully used both in medical aesthetic procedures and in other fields, e.g. ophthalmology or orthopedics. As a gel bioimplant, they are successfully used in the correction of volume losses. The safety, high durability of these preparations, as well as the relatively short time of the implantation procedure and its low painfulness make the above-mentioned bio-implants good candidates for aesthetic correction.
The aim of this article is to discuss the author’s preliminary observations on the possibility of aesthetic correction of cleft lip and palate, previously treated surgically, with the use of HA preparations.
