Following surgery for cleft lip and palate, and other surgeries on the face, arm restraints are used so that your child will not disrupt the sutures places at the time of surgery. Please bring the arm restraints with you to your child’s clinic appointments following surgery.

The UNC Pediatric and Craniofacial Group Give Back Program encourages families to return their children’s arm restraints after surgery. These arm restraints are valuable and can be used by families overseas following free surgeries done by UNC surgeons. Please remember to donate your child’s arm restraints after surgery!
