Cancer patient, 69, has her face rebuilt.

 

.

  • Ann O’Sullivan had a large part of her jaw, her left eye and some of her teeth removed after a large tumour was found spreading across her face
  • Surgeons then used 3D technology to rebuild the left side of her face
  • They electronically scanned the other side of her face to build a 3D profile
  • They replicated the healthy side using bone from her leg to rebuild her jaw
  • She is now having chemotherapy and radiotherapy.
