Dr Lewin just came out and gave me a big hug and said cutely "You are lucky I love your family so much"... :)))
She said that it was a long day - that everything on the list was more complicated than originally anticipated but that she perserveered. Much of the surgery was "detail" work. While she carved similar implants, they had to be readjusted because his anatomy is not identical on both sides - she said the surgery was similar to a bilateral hemifacial (asymmetry) candidate and was by far her most difficult bilateral case. The bony structure on his left side (behind the ear) is not really there, so it was difficult to get the implant to stay in place properly. His scalp area that had no hair and was damaged from an ear cup and from birth ... oops gotta go, we can see him....more later!
