A woman in Lexington, Kentucky, is recovering after undergoing a procedure that involved her mouth, nose and ears being removed, a plastic surgeon has revealed.
The procedure, which left her with a full face and mouth, was performed on April 6, 2015 by Dr. Daniel D. Freeman at Lexington Plastic Surgery Center.
The surgery, which took place at the Lexington Surgery Center, is the second such operation Freeman performed in the past year.
He first performed the procedure on his mother’s face, which he says was a “totally normal” procedure.
“She was very excited, she was smiling and happy.
I was just trying to do the best thing for her, for her family,” Freeman told ABC News’ “Good Morning America.”
When asked if his mother was willing to accept his offer, he replied, “Absolutely.”
“She is a wonderful mother, and she is a very proud mom,” Freeman said.
The operation was done on a small patient and the patient did not require any additional care, he added.
The woman, who has not been identified, has not received any medical or surgical treatment, and has been receiving support and counseling from her mother.
The Lexington Surgery Department said it is still looking into the incident and is in contact with her mother and family.
Freeman is a plastic surgery surgeon and a member of the Lexington Orthopaedic Association, according to his bio.ABC News’ Michael Nock contributed to this report.
