The procedure is one of the most complicated ear constructions in the United States, according to an ABC News report, and allows for the formation of new blood vessels in the cartilage. The Army said Burrage recovered her hearing and that the operation was a success, according to a statement on Monday.

After the accident, Burrage said she didn't feel comfortable with how she looked and was presented with plastic surgery as an option.

" The entire objective is by the time she's made with all this, it looks great, it's sensate, and also in 5 years if someone does not recognize her they will not discover", Lt. Col. Owen Johnson 3rd, the principal of plastic as well as plastic surgery at the clinical facility was priced estimate as stating in the declaration. "After that I bear in mind individuals approaching us, asking if we were fine then I passed out".

" As a young active-duty Soldier, they should have the most effective restoration they could obtain", he claimed.

At first, Burrage was hesitant when she learned what that would entail.

Surgeons, meanwhile, believe that in five years people will not even notice that it is not her original ear. In 2016, Burrage had been driving from MS to Texas when the front tires of her vehicle blew out, causing the auto to skid and flip.

When Shamika Burrage survived a devastating auto crash two years ago, she didn't come out entirely unscathed.

UFC 224 Play-By-Play: Kelvin Gastelum Drops "Jacare" Souza To Pick Split Decision
Machida and Oleinik picked up "Performance of the Night" awards, and Gastelum and Souza took home "Fight of the Night" honors. Souza tried to posture up, but Kelvin held him down, only allowing his opponent to land a few short shots.

Private Burrage, who underwent counseling to help her deal with the trauma and the accident's effects on her appearance, is now more optimistic even if she still has two surgeries left.

While it may be a first for the US Army, it's not, of course, the first time we've seen replacement body parts grown.

The surgery is hailed as "the first of its kind".

In the 1990s, a shocking, but real, photo of a mouse with what appeared to be a human ear attached to its back was widely circulated. However, the resounding success of Burrage's surgery means that U.S. army surgeons can now restore and recreate cartilaginous body parts for soldiers in service. In 2012, a female shed her ear to cancer cells as well as expanded a substitute under her lower arm skin, ABC News reported.

Doctors later told her that if medical treatment had been delayed for 30 more minutes, she would have bled to death. This will enable her to having feeling in her ear once the rehabilitation process is complete. It's being used to cover up scar tissue around the jawline, also resulting from the crash.

Burrage did not want to go through with the surgery because of the risks involved.

"I was coming back from leave and we were around Odessa, Texas", Burrage said in the post.
