Daily Mail: How Mohammad Jawad saved the face of Katie Piper, a TV presenter who was victim to a brutal acid attack
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.'

Victoria Lambert of the Daily Telegraph writes: The chemical burns suffered by Katie Price in an attack from an ex-boyfriend were so savage that, as well as destroying her looks, they threatened her life and blinded her in one eye.
Katie has spoken widely about her ordeal, but her remarkable recovery, which is testament to a pioneering new procedure performed by Mr Mohammed Jawad, a reconstructive plastic surgery surgeon, at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital, London, has not been reported in detail before. It holds enormous potential for burns victims and could be a genuine alternative for potential face-transplant patients. Read the full story by visiting the Daily Telegraph's website - Click here
'My Beautiful Face' documents the story of one of my patients, Katie Piper, who suffered a brutal acid attack last year, severely damaging her face and several regions of her body. Since the attack I have performed a series of very intense operations on Katie in order to reconstruct her damaged face and body using a variety of ground-breaking techniques and surgical procedures. As you can imagine, over the last 18 months have formed a close relationship with the Piper family and we have all been on the most meaningful of journeys together.
I was thoroughly impressed with the documentary and left the private screening feeling very content that the world would finally get to see how truly brave, courageous and inspirational Katie has been through her ordeal. Please share Katie's journey by tuning in to Channel 4 on October 29th at 9pm to view 'My Beautiful Face'.
