Last trip, this young lady came to NCH with a terribly disfiguring right maxillary mass. We removed the tumor. The orbital floor was destroyed so we made a sling of Vicryl mesh to support the eye and transferred a temporalis muscle flap into the maxillary cavity. The pathology was fibrous dysplasia-a non-malignant, but not so benign disease where normal bone is replaced by fibrous tissue. Today she  came to visit us. She is very happy with the results of her surgery. I explained that we could make her look even better with some smaller surgeries but she refused. As long as she is happy, that is the most important thing.
