Has anyone got any experience if having a lip and tongue tie lasered here? I saw a lactation consultant on Monday and she diagnosed an upper lip tie and tongue tie. We are booked into have it lasered next week and was wondering what others experiences have been like?
I left the lip tie alone after being more impressed with my consultant dentist than the Huddersfield team. Lip ties are normal they aren't routinely associated with feeding issues though ones that are tight might be a problem. Ours is huge and through the gum but not at all tight, no feeding probs, no subsequent issues. I started doing random surveys and we nesrly all have a lip tie or Tt according to the diagnosis private snipping teams make.
We had our Tt done on the nhs, free and following the best evidence based research. Lip ties are known to cause some problems for some children - not all. My consultant bought much research and was happy to admit more could be done but I am uncomfortable with the over dominance of a few internet outlier experts and the ready referrals running between some ibclcs and expensive snippers.
