The surgeons carried out the facial reconstruction using virtual surgery and 3D models, removing a vascularized piece of pelvic bone and reshaping it to adapt it to the rest of the face before transplanting it through the inside of the mouth, with no scars left at all.

‘In the past, facial reconstruction surgery would have necessitated multiple interventions and left one or several scars. Canadian surgeons have now conducted the first scar-free facial reconstruction in the history of plastic surgery. ’

The doctors said, "In the past, this type of procedure would have necessitated multiple interventions and left one or more scars."

Dr. Borsuk said, "The operation, during which the latest technologies were applied to reconstructive plastic surgery, sends a real message of hope to anyone who feels they must simply live with this type of disfigurement and who often feels so self-conscious that they isolate themselves."
