George Ashman was born in 2006 with a big birthmark on his foreheadâ€¦
Naturally his mother wanted to get it removed, but the procedure to do so came as a bit of a surprise.
From The Daily Mailâ€¦
Last year doctors inserted two small inflatable sacks under his hair line at either side of his forehead.
Over four months, they gradually inflated with natural bodily fluid until they had stretched the skin enough to reach over the birthmark when it was removed.
His mother’s responseâ€¦
When I first saw the implants in place I was speechless.
They were larger than I expected – and placed on either side of his tiny head looked like horns. My cute, angel-faced baby looked like the devil.
But I’m really proud of the strength he has shown through all of this.
Despite the traumatizing procedure, both mother and son are â€” as you can imagine â€” happy with the resultsâ€¦
