The photographs show the extraordinary transformation in Kanwal’s appearance since the attack ten years ago as surgeons have rebuilt her face and created a new nose for her. One of the team helping her has been hair transplant surgeon Asim Shahmalak, from Manchester, who travelled to Karachi to create two new eyebrows and new eyelashes in the left eyelid for Kanwal from hair taken from the back of her scalp.


Dr Shahmalak, best known for his work with celebrity hair transplant patients like Calum Best at Crown Clinic close to Manchester Airport, was reunited with Kanwal on a trip to Karachi last week where she proudly showed off her new eyebrows and eyelashes which have grown back following his reconstruction work two years ago.
