As a little girl, Basma Hameed suffered a painful accident that left half of her face obscured by third-degree burns. She endured hundreds of surgeries and laser treatments to repair her damaged skin before a plastic surgeon told her nothing else could be done an answer she refused to accept. Hameed went on to pioneer a groundbreaking procedure that allows pigment to be implanted into scar tissue as a way of camouflaging the damage. Today, equipped with a steady hand and unflinching optimism, she helps thousands of people heal from the inside out at her Basma Hameed Clinic.
