Perth boy is all smiles after life-changing surgery

A very common misconception about plastic surgeons is they spend all their time performing cosmetic procedures like breast augmentation, liposuction and face lifts. At the Western Australian Plastic Surgery Centre however, this is far from the truth.

A large portion of the surgical procedures performed by our Specialist Plastic Surgeons include corrective surgery, repairs of acute hand injuries, and removals of skin cancers and lesions.

They are also Consultant Specialist Plastic Surgeons at tertiary hospitals and recently Dr Vij Vijayasekaran and Dr Anthony Williams led a specialist team at Perth Children’s Hospital to perform complex surgery on a young Perth boy called Jack Lawrence who was born with Moebius syndrome – a rare form of paralysis that left his face frozen.

Watch the video below to learn more about this special boy and the amazing surgery that has given him the ability to smile again.
