Facial Difference

Facial Difference

Facial Differences should be more clearly defined as a Disability

Vanessa’s face was reconstructed with an orbital floor (x2), Zygomatic osteotomy with titanium plates and fittings, failed 3D-printed alloplastic¬†Zygomatic implant, artificial eye, silicone orbital implant and several plastic surgery procedures including a cheek rotation flap and ectropian¬†corrective surgery.

Vanessa advocates for patient rights’ to be clearly defined as a disability in terms of appearance diversity as some conditions cannot be rectified with surgery and many patients live their entire lives in social isolation.
