Healthy Living: Rebuilding Valeria’s Nose
Animal bites are more common than most people think, with 2-5 million occurring each year in the U.S.
In Healthy Living, Courtney Hunter has more on the unique series of surgeries that changed the life of a teenager whose nose was bitten off by a horse.
Valeria says even though the process was a lot to go through, it was worth it.
The series of surgeries can cost up to $20,000 or more, but her procedures were covered by the Day of Smiles charity at Baptist Hospital in Miami.
This technique generally takes a series of four procedures, and can be used to treat skin cancers and other traumatic injuries to the nose.
