Michigan Girl Undergoes Third Surgery Related To Pet Raccoon Attack

Posted on November 12th, 2012 No Comments

The recovery process has been a long and grueling one for a 10-year-old West Michigan girl who was attacked by a pet raccoon when she was just an infant. The girl was three-months-old when her face was mauled by a raccoon inside her home. As a result of the raccoon attack, the girl lost her nose, a portion of her upper lip, and one of her ears.

On Friday, November 2 the young girl underwent her third major surgery in order to reconstruct her facial features that were damaged in the attack. She started these surgeries in August, and still faces several more in the near future. This third surgery was focused on defining the tip of her newly constructed nose. The surgery took longer than expected, but the surgeon said that everything went according to plan, and that she was doing well immediately following the procedure. 

The facial reconstruction procedures have been carried out at the Beaumont Children’s Hospital in Royal Oak, Michigan. The surgeon who just completed her third surgery stated that the young girl still faces between five and six more major surgeries before the facial reconstruction process will be finished. Her fourth surgery was scheduled for two weeks after the third surgery, and the fifth one will follow one week after the fourth.
