Cleft lip and palate is a serious congenital facial deformity that includes aesthetic and functional problems. This needs a number of surgical procedures which also includes bone grafting to correct. The process of pre-surgical nasoalveolar moulding not only decreases the required number of surgeries but also improves the aesthetic result of the surgery. Pre-surgical nasoalveolar moulding is passive moulding procedure in which we align and approximate the cleft segments and also improve the contour of columella-philtrum region and nose. A similar case report of a patient with bilateral cleft lip and palate is described in which application of pre-surgical nasoalveolar moulding decreased the defect and vastly improved the anatomy of lip-nose region.
