They airlifted in a faceless meatlump— and a thousand tiny stitches later, Dr. Lee had not only put me back together, she had put me back together in eminently recognizable form. Now when I tell people that my face was torn off by a bear they predictably do two things:
First, they let out an audible gasp and tell me they don’t believe me. Then, after they see the pictures, they ask me for Dr. Kimberly Lee’s business card. The word “painstaking” doesn’t begin to describe Dr. Lee’s surgical approach. Some might even call it obsessive…I just call it Genius.
Thank You, my Friend, my Hero. Love,
My mama took me to get my ears pierced when I was young. She has since passed away, but it’s one of my fondest memories I have of her. I am a victim of domestic violence and my ex- pulled my earrings, creating a tear in my earlobe. Through the FACE to FACE organization, I thankfully found Dr. Lee who fixed my ear while keeping my ear piercing, allowing me to hold onto the memory of my mama and the original ear piercings I got with her. Thank you Dr. Lee!
