Fortunately, it is not very difficult to reverse the divide. It can be done as an outpatient surgeon do this procedure since there is more potential for asymmetry than there was with the initial split. Operation while being given a local anesthetic. It entails removing (cutting out) the repaired lining from the split’s tip to its deepest point along the inside of the split. Since a knife (scalpel) is frequently used instead of cautery, bleeding is usually heavier than it would be with a split. After the bleeding has stopped, the tongue is stitched to itself along both its dorsal and ventral surfaces, from left to right.
