When Rhiannon was 3 years old, she was accidentally run over by a lawnmower while playing tag outside with a friend. The blades sheared off a large chunk of Rhiannon’s left buttock, leaving her with a significant deformity that negatively impacted her self-esteem for the next 13 years.
“When I look in the mirror, I get very depressed and sad,” Rhiannon said when she first appeared on The Doctors in September 2014. “I have breakdowns where I just start crying and thinking I’m just not worth it.”
After hearing Rhiannon’s story, plastic surgeon Dr. Andrew Ordon surprised her by offering to perform a reconstructive surgery free of charge.
During the complicated procedure, Dr. Ordon and plastic surgeon Dr. Ritu Chopra excised Rhiannon’s scar tissue then carefully repositioned tissue and fat to repair her disfigurement.
Since receiving the surgery, Rhiannon’s personality and self-confidence have blossomed. Her father says she is excited about going to prom for the first time and adds that she has started taking a lot more selfies.
“I feel amazing, like a new person,” Rhiannon says. “Everything is back to the way it should’ve been.”
