photos - plastic surgery cases - part 1

Widmiya Luc is a 12 year old girl who was scalded by boiling water from a pot that spilled onto her trunk area. Itchy keloid scar tissue grew over the burnt areas of skin. Hopefully the plastic surgery team can treat this problem.

This is a close-up of the scar tissue.

Rose Sthergelie Sobia is now a 2 month old baby who was born with a cleft lip. We are hoping that she too will be able to have this defect surgically repaired.

Jimmy Jean is a 7 year old boy who suffered burns to his head and upper arm when battery acid fell on him. The scar tissue over his shoulder area is quite tight and needs to be released by surgery to improve his mobility.

His ear was completely burned off. He can still hear though. I don't know if there is such a thing as an artificial ear that can be created for him.
