What was the cost of this procedure?   I always noticed my son had a strange looking top lip (inside), but never knew a lip tie was a thing. I am considering lip tie laser surgery for my 19 month old because he is having difficulty speaking. His lip tie is very sensitive and I believe it is causing pain and delaying his speech.
