Facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon Benjamin Stong has donated his time and expertise to repair the disfigured face of a woman who sustained second- and third-degree burns on her face and neck when her ex-boyfriend allegedly threw a bowl of liquid drain cleaner on her. "We can't make it like it was before the injury, but we can certainly improve her quality of life," said Stong, who heard about the woman through a local domestic violence advocacy group. The patient also has established a foundation to help other victims of domestic violence.
