Lip Release

Lip release, or frenectomy, is done when the upper lip does not have the proper amount of mobility.  When the upper lip movement is restricted, baby cannot produce a good seal while feeding. 


Lip Tie Symptoms for Baby:

  • Gassiness; fussiness; “colicky baby”

  • Treatment for gastroesophogeal reflux disease, yet to be confirmed via testing

  • Fatigue resulting in falling asleep at the breast

  • Discomfort for both baby and mother, resulting in shorter feedings

  • Need for more frequent feedings round the clock

  • Poor coordination of suck, swallow, breathe patterns

  • Tooth decay
