As published in the Daily Mail:
London-based Plastic Surgeon, Mohammad Jawad, has revealed how he used a pioneering technique to rebuild the face of a model and TV presenter who was attacked with acid. Mr Jawad, 51, was part of a team of eight doctors who treated 26-year-old Katie Piper. The six-hour operation was the first procedure of its kind in the world.
Ms Piper was left disfigured after her jealous ex-boyfriend Daniel Lynch hired a man to maim her. The sulphuric acid he threw at Ms Piper stripped away four layers of skin in the worst case of acid burns her doctors had seen. Eighteen months later, she is making good progress thanks to the Chelsea and Westminster hospital's burns unit, which treats about 600 people a year.
In his first interview, Mr Jawad told of the emotional impact of seeing Ms Piper's injuries: 'It broke my heart when I saw Katie. She was so young and was there through no fault of her own.'
