- Surgical treatment for patients with cleft lip aims at restoring facial balance and harmony. Cronin method labioplasty in patients with unilateral cleft lip and pal-ate (UCLP) produces symmetrical lips with minimal scarring. This study evaluates lip symmetry following Cronin method labioplasty in patients with UCLP based on the protocol of the Cleft Center Harapan Kita General Hospital. Thirty-six pa-tients with UCLP were photographed on the anterior side using a standardized method at 2 weeks, 1 month, 3 months, 6 months, and 1 year following Cronin method labioplasty. Cleft side lips were measured and compared with those on the opposite side. No significant differences were observed in the length of alar curvature points (ac) to the ipsilateral commissure or the distance from the Cu-pid’s bow peak to the ipsilateral commissure on the cleft and noncleft sides. Sig-nificant differences were observed in the length from the subalar (sbal) to the Cu-pid’s bow peak (P = 0.007) between the cleft and noncleft sides at 2 weeks, 1 month, 3 months, and 6 months following labioplasty. The ratio of anthropomet-ric measurements suggests that a symmetrical lip on the cleft and noncleft sides can be achieved at 1 year following Cronin method labioplasty.
