Unilateral cleft lip surgery is part and parcel of every trainee cleft surgeon’s armamentarium. As their cleft expertise is founded on solid principles and anthropometric measurements, the chances of error and iatrogenic deformity are significantly lower than that of the untrained surgeon who attempts cleft surgery. In this communication we would like to mention the possible dimensions of cleft surgery, and how one can improve outcomes by looking at different ways to ease the psychological burden of cleft children. The sequential repair makes for better aesthetic functional results and patients will be satisfied with the post-operative results when the surgery is properly executed, taking into consideration all the rules of engagement in tackling cleft challenges.
