We are in El Paso, Texas. I have spent a lot of time in the past in Houston with Dr.Denise Metry, and Dr. Edmonds took care of her airway surgeries. I think Dr. Metry has said that they could remove the scarred area to her rear scalp, but that won't cause her hair to grow in thicker or faster. I have even considered signing her up for a hair club, or gluing in extensions. As for her lip,i assume that there may be something that can be done later, almost like correcting a cleft lip.
Traveling to Houston is so expensive, and if you think it is difficult to get insurance to recognize and cover, just imagine when the problems ARE purely cosmetic. They covered her treatment before because her marks threatened her vision and breathing.
