Cheilostomatoplasty is a medical term referring to a surgical procedure focused on the reconstruction or repair of the lip (cheilos) and the oral cavity (stoma). This specialized operation combines “cheiloplasty,” the surgery of the lip, with “stomatoplasty,” the surgery of the mouth. The main objective of cheilostomatoplasty is to correct congenital deformities, injuries, or defects in the lip and mouth area, aiming to improve both functionality and aesthetics.
This procedure is commonly performed by skilled medical professionals to address various lip and oral conditions, promoting enhanced oral function and an improved appearance for the patient. As with any surgical procedure, the specific indications, risks, and potential benefits of cheilostomatoplasty should be thoroughly discussed and evaluated with a qualified healthcare provider based on the patient’s individual circumstances.
