Model and Skater Brooklinn Khoury Reveals Surgery Plans to Repair Mouth After Dog Ripped Off Lip

Brooklinn Khoury is on the mend.
In a YouTube video earlier this month, the 22-year-old professional skater shared that just over a year after she was attacked by a pit bull, she found a surgeon repairing her upper lip and parts of her nose.
The procedure, scheduled for November 17, involves making a skin graft from her forearm to replace the skin on her face. Khoury said she spent a year looking for the right doctor for the job.
Khoury added that she is an active person and worries about being "in poor headspace" while recovering from her surgery, when she cannot move her mouth and needs a feeding tube.
"I have really mixed feelings about it," she said of her operation. "I'm looking forward to having an operation to heal again and working with this doctor. I'm also really sad to give up my life and go through the healing process."

On the year-long anniversary of the attack earlier this month, Khoury spoke about how her "life changed completely" afterwards.
"This attack taught me to really love myself inside and out, regardless of what people have to say," the skateboarder wrote on Instagram. “It taught me that society has high standards for beauty, but the reality is that everyone is beautiful in their own way. It taught me to be patient with the way people reacted to my story. "
"It taught me to love even when I didn't feel it from others," she continued. "It showed me how precious life is. I will never take this for granted. Thank you for your continued support on this journey and don't forget to hug someone you love today."
Khoury is currently dating Dance Moms alum Chloé Lukasiak. For the one year anniversary of the attack, Lukasiak planned a surprise picnic in honor of Khoury.

"4 days ago, that's 1 year since Brooklinn was attacked by a dog. Despite all the hardships she has endured in the past year, she never doubted being the most incredible person I have ever met," wrote Lukasiak also took photos of the evening on Instagram.
