I wonder whether you're ok with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.

Thank you!

Expert:  DrRussMD replied 4 years ago.
actually you need to see a reconstructive [plastic] surgeon.
Yes there is a lot that can be done if there is deformity, even now.

That hands on assessment is needed to see what can be done.

OK. If you have further questions or details, use reply to expert.
