    After 2 years of a non healing wound following 3 open wound excisions my son has been referred to plastic surgeons for consults. Of course, each one recommends a different technique. I would love to hear any stories, the good with the bad, about zplasty or cleft lift surgery. Please share what you will so perhaps I can better make an informed decision based on others experience.
    Thank you.

    My son is scheduled for his first surgery on the 16th, Cleft Lift. After MUCH research, we decided that this would be the best option for J. I am keeping my fingers crossed!!! I will share pictures and progress along the way.

    I wish you and your son the best.
