On examination, he had defective left eye prosthesis and deformed nose. He was very conscious about his looks and lost his confidence due to the defective appearance.
Maxillofacial Surgeon Dr. S. M. Balaji surgically corrected the defective appearance of the boy without much visible scars on his face. The defective eye prosthesis was removed and orbital content was reconstructed using buccal tissue graft and silicone orbital implant. Artificial eye prosthesis in close resemblance to that of the right eye was fixed. This improved his overall appearance. Through the previous scar, defective ala of nose was corrected using chondral graft obtained from the rib cartilage. The boy is very happy for the successful facial reconstruction. This helps in regaining his self confidence.
