GRAPHIC PHOTOS: Doctors Give Victim Of Domestic Violence A ‘Facelift’

Women need to do better and place value on their own lives when it comes to domestic violence. Anyone can be a victim of domestic violence but women apparently are the larger statistic. An unnamed 25-year-old woman got more than she bargained for in love’s name when her husband brutally assaulted her and ripped half of her face off.

But for advanced medical aid, it would have been near impossible for the affected woman to live a normal life ever again, going by the extent of her injuries.

The story of the young woman was shared by Medicalcreationsofficial on Instagram, with extremely gory pictures of her injuries before a final reconstruction that unbelievably patched her wounds up.

The medical handle wrote:

A 25 years old female presented with alleged history of assault by husband over the left face.

There was degloving and avulsion of the left side of her face including the nose, forehead skin and eyebrow on the left side, upper and lower eyelids and part of the cheek.

The globe as well as eyesight was intact. The extra ocular movements were present.

A thorough debridement was undertaken, and the devitalized tissue was excised.

Meticulous suturing was done to relocate the avulsed structures to their respective 
positions. 

After four weeks, costal cartilage graft was 
used for nasal augmentation.

At follow-up one year after the trauma, and after two 
surgeries, the patient was satisfied with no functional deficit.

There were no nasal or ocular complaints. Eye opening and closure were normal.

Doctors felt that the cosmetic outcome was suboptimal, and offered the patient the options of scar revision over the forehead, staged removal of skin graft over the cheek, and a more appropriate eyebrow positioning.

However the patient was satisfied and was not desirous of any other surgical procedures suggested to her.
