Can you repair a split tongue?

Ask the Plastic Surgeon We’ve just had an interesting query through enquiring about the possibility of surgery to repair a split tongue.

While it isn’t a procedure we currently offer at Aurora Clinics, we thought it would be useful to answer it here for anyone interested in the same surgery:

Cosmetic Surgery question:

Hi, I’m from Japan, I have a Brazilian friend that has his tongue split from doing body modification. I want to know if there’s a way to fix his tongue from the split, making it normal again? Thank you.

Cosmetic Surgery answer:

Thank you very much for your enquiry. It is possible to fix a tongue that is split and this would normally be done by a maxillo-facial surgeon. They tend to specialise in tongues and other areas inside the mouth and I think would be the best person to see your friend.

I think it would be best looking for a surgeon in your area who specialises in this field. I wish your friend the best of luck should they decide to proceed with treatment.

Best Wishes,

Adrian Richards
