A young American woman got terribly swollen ears after a piercing.
It was 11 years ago. 29-year-old Jennifer from Philadelphia had her ears pierced.
After a while, her head began to hurt, and her ears swelled up.
Jennifer turned to the doctor Sandra Lee for help, as other doctors could not help.
After examining Jennifer, Dr. Li diagnosed her with extreme keloids, a type of scarring that can appear after minor skin damage.
The girl had about 400 grams of tissue removed and ear implants inserted.
Later, Jennifer underwent radiation therapy, trying to keep her keloids in a normal state.
Everything has changed for the better. No more headaches, no more dizziness. I don’t need to hide. Dr. Li gave me a future.
