This poor lady was involved in a fire and had severe burn contractures, especially from her chin to her chest. She could barely move her head. We excised the scar tissue and placed a pectorals myocutaneous flap. After healing she had normal mobility of her neck. However, we did have to sacrifice most of the right breast. Vicki Jones from the Women's Health Boutique in Longview, TX, kindly supplied her with a bra and silicone breast prosthesis. She is very happy.
