Girl With Extreme Bow Legs Gets Confidence Boosts After Surgery With Amazing Result

An 11-year-old African girl, simply identified as Justine, with extreme bow legs is now all shades of confident after undergoing an operation to straighten them.

Justine, now taller and filled with renewed confidence, was all smiles as she showed off her newly-healed legs five months after the life changing surgery.

Mercy Ships who shared a before and after photo of Justine on Instagram wrote;

”Same dress; same shoes; different future awaiting her! Justine was the first patient up the gangway on hospital opening day – and over five months later, she’s walked back down those steps for the final time with the brightest smile on her face.
