Kaalia undergoes plastic surgery


New Delhi: Kaalia, one of Odisha’s twin sisters who continues with an artificial respirator, underwent plastic surgery at AIIMS on Saturday.

The surgeons removed an unhealthy part of the skin flap from his skull and replaced it with skin obtained from the institute’s fur bank.

A team of plastic surgeons from Coimbatore was also present during the operation that lasted about two hours. “Kaalia is still on the ventilator and is under observation,” the doctors said.
