Bergman Folkers helps woman whose face was mauled by dog

Bergman Folkers helps woman whose face was mauled by dog

On April 28, Caren Henry sustained serious injuries to her leg, abdomen, and face after being attacked by a large Labrador dog. After the dog bit her in the leg and stomach, it ripped her nose off, then bit her husband, Laine Henry, on the arm. It wasn’t until Laine bit the dog on its nose that the dog let go and stopped attacking the couple.

Due to the attack, Caren lost the entire right side of her nose. Fortunately, Dr. Bergman of Bergman Folkers Plastic Surgery was able to help her by taking a composite graft from her ear to recreate the right side of her nose. According to Caren, her nose is “almost exactly the same, just with a few stitches.”

Regarding the work Dr. Bergman did, Laine Henry said, “These guys are miracle workers, that’s for sure.”
