This trip had a lot of variety. We did 7 microcia surgeries (ear implants), 4 skin grafts, 1 biopsy, 6 lesions, 1 septoplasty (nose straightening), 4 burn revisions, 9 scar revisions, 1 frenulectomy (removal of extra folds of tissue that are used to hold something in place), 1 hemangiona (an abnormal build-up of blood in the skin) surgery, and several others. All procedures went well and the patients were recovering nicely.
