Docs rid girls giant mole by inflating balloons under her scalp

35 ratings | 17989 views
Courageous Jessica Brett, nine, was born with a mole covering half her head and doctors warned her parents if it became cancerous, it would likely be untreatable. Medics did not want to leave Jessica with a bald patch by using skin from elsewhere, so decided to help the girl grow more on her scalp to use in two complex operations. In a UK first, surgeons put balloons under her scalp in a 'mohawk' and spent a total of six MONTHS inflating them with more than a pint and a half of saline to stretch her skin. Plucky Jessica coped with her unusual "hairstyle" by drawing inspiration from her short-haired hero Jessie J and didn't complain once throughout the tough ordeal.
