Charlotte Ponce New Ear Surgery Complete
The Today Show on NBC featured a segment about Beaumont Children’s Hospital and pediatric patient Charlotte Ponce. The interview was filmed just days following her most recent reconstructive surgery with Beaumont surgeon Kongkrit Chaiyasate, M.D., in which he attached an ear he created for her.

Charlotte, now 12, was attacked by a raccoon inside her home as an infant, destroying her ear, nose and cheek. She lives in Spring Lake, MI, and has been travelling regularly to Beaumont Children’s Hospital over the past two years to undergo a series of reconstructive facial surgeries with Dr. Chaiyasate, including work on her nose, lip and cheek.
