Deformities related with cleft lip are not only limited to the cleft site but also extended to all around the nasolabial region. Facial development is composed of several complex processes as the formation, migration, coalescence and interaction of separate fields. When there is a cleft event, it means there are general problems of those processes. As a result facial elements should have displacement, deformation and functional hypotrophy. These also affect the mucocutaneous structures, which result in the typical deformities of cleft lip. Traditional surgical methods are not sufficient of the correction of functional impairments in the cleft lip. Accordingly, there are relatively high possibilities of occurring secondary deformities. The Delaire's method focuses on repair of functional impairment of the cleft. Consequently, it can maintain the initial good surgical result and avoid the unnecessary incision scar. And this method can minimize secondary nasal deformities which can reduce the risk of additional nasal correction. Therefore authors introduce this advantageous the Delaire technique cheliolplasty which it can be widely used for the cleft lip correction in Korea.
