Abstract

The bilateral cleft lip deformity is often a challenging surgery for younger cleft trainees because of the associated nasal deformities. Done with care, using Mulliken’s five principles of symmetry, muscle continuity, philtral size and shape, median tubercle formation using labial elements, and alar cartilage positioning, one is able to achieve satisfactory results over time. These pillars remain the constant for younger cleft trainees. Anthropometric measurements form the basis of functional aesthetic bilateral cleft lip repair. Success of bilateral cleft lip surgery involves correct anthropometric measurements and the five principles.
