The Dallas surgical protocol for primary bilateral cleft lip/nose repair depends on the anatomy of the deformity. In cases of asymmetric bilateral clefts, an extremely small prolabium (<6 mm in vertical high) or a displaced premaxilla, a 2-stage lip repair was performed. At the same time, assessment of the tissue available for the columella determined the approach to the nose. In this part, the technique of 2-stage lip/nose repair of the bilateral cleft lip and palate is reviewed, and the long-term outcomes are presented.
