Both my twins have cleft lips one had BCLP and the other has BMCL(bilateral microform cleft lip(which basically means his lip has scaring as if he had the repair)) the one with BLCP has had his lip fixed and will, have his palette done hopefully in march and the one with BMCL has had not repairs but might need his lip done when he gets a bit older, it just depends on how much the scaring stretches as he grows and has for his palette its all their, but a nurse has questioned if he only has a soft palette and not a hard which means nothing to be but will be asking the cleft team when we meet again
