Patient of the Month: Alessa

November 2020

Alessa was born with a several complications in her home country of Nicaragua. Unable to breathe in the womb, her mother had to undergo an emergency C-section in order to save Alessa and/or herself. After a very complicated delivery that nearly cost Alessa’s life, and several years of praying for a nose, Alessa was transferred to Nicklaus Children’s Hospital for a plan of care that required multiple surgeries and collaboration from our craniofacial and plastic reconstructive surgeons.
