Hello, 

Many Thanks for taking the time to read this.

6 years ago my little boy was sadly bitten by a dog. It was just before his first birthday.

As you can imagine it was a very traumatic time for our family.

He underwent two surgeries on the left side of his face with 42stiches in total.

The surgeon was amazing and we couldn't have thanked her more. 

My little boy is now coming 7 and is more aware of the scars on his face and we don't want to put him through major surgery again so we have decided after much consideration to use the latest in laser treatment. Due to the number of scars on his face he will have to have numerous treatments.

As a parent you always want the best for your child and I want him to have the best possible treatment as I do not want him growing up feeling self conscious of the scars.

I didn't want to upload a photo a photo of my little boy as you can imagine it could be distressing for some people.

Once again I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for all the help.
