While your anticipation, excitement and nervousness may be at its peak level. Take a deep breath, here are 5 things you should know that will help the lip tie procedure go more smoothly for your baby and you. A lip tie is when a piece of skin that attaches the gums to the inside of the lip is too tight and thick. When this membrane occurs, it can lead to breastfeeding and sleep problems in your baby. If left untreated, it can eventually lead to problems with speech. A laser procedure can ensure that your baby can breastfeed comfortably and gets them the start in life they deserve. Here are 3 tips from Dr. Strutz that can help.
1. Get the facts. Know what the procedure is going to look like. Get before and after care facts. Know what to expect the first few days after the procedure. Don’t be afraid to ask questions.
2. The laser procedure helps to reduce recovery time, pain and bleeding, which is why Dr. Judy Strutz and her team chose this method instead of scissors.
3. After care stretching is required in order to make sure that your baby’s lip tie heals properly.
