22-year-old Brooklinn Khoury was just starting off her modeling career, but all that changed in an instant when her cousin’s pitbull attacked her, ripping off her upper lip completely. “He was hanging off my mouth,” Brooklinn said. At first she thought it was a minor bite, but the horrific realization quickly set in. She has had multiple surgeries to rebuild her upper lip. Doctors took skin and nerves from her arm and transplanted them to create a new functioning lip.
