LaTarah Lacey Story About Facial Plastic Surgery

By February 15, 2011 Testimonials

“Just a swollen node, I thought. But Dr Benke’s test showed a tumor. I was terrified. Before surgery, I cried. Dr. Benke took my hand and asked if he could pray for me. Then . . . peace. I call my scar a beauty mark, because it’s a sign of life, and life is beautiful.” – LaTarah Lacey

If you feel a lump on your neck, have it examined right away. LaTarah thought hers would disappear, but a carcinoma only grows. And this affected the salivary (parotid) gland in front of her ear. LaTarah’s face was also at stake. To avoid a scooped out indention, I used a new plastic surgery technique, inserting Alloderm. No cancer now, and plenty pretty. – Ted Benke, M.D., F.A.C.S.
