What To Expect
A frenectomy corrects a lip- or tongue-tie. It is a simple, common procedure that is most often performed on infants. The frenum, which is the thin piece of tissue that connects the lips to the gums, is removed with a laser. Laser frenectomies also reduce bleeding and the risk of infection. The treatment itself is very fast, as is the recovery.
Dr. Robles did a wonderful job with our newborn repairing her tongue and lip tie. She was gentle and kind and did a great job communicating what to expect. The procedure was quick and we had immediate relief from pain with breastfeeding. We can’t thank Dr. Robles enough for her services.
