Australian surgeons remove huge growth from Filipino boy’s face

This undated handout photo released on July 3, 2014 by Monash Childrens Hospital in Melbourne shows seven-year-old Jhonny Lameon from the Philippines after having surgery to remove a huge tumor from his face.  Australian surgeons have successfully carried out a complex and rare procedure to remove the huge growth from the boy's face, who had to lift it up to eat and drink.  NGO Interplast teamed with the Children First Foundation to bring Jhonny to Australia, as the type of surgery he needed not available in the Philippines and out of reach for his impoverished family. A team of four surgeons, who all volunteered, performed an eight-hour operation to remove the mass and reconstruct Jhonny's entire face in March, with the hospital revealing news of the case on July 3.
