Plastic surgeons helping victims of Las Vegas shooting cope with scars

(WTNH)–A plastic surgery practice in Las Vegas is helping shooting victims cope with their scars. Cosmetic surgeons at Plastic Surgery Vegas are offering free services to survivors like 19-year-old Alexandra Pettis, who was shot twice.

Surgeons say they will be able to use a skin graft to cover up the wound on her arm.

“We thought we could maybe help with the smaller things that go on for weeks and months sometimes.”

“It would be there forever, kind of like a reminder, so I think it’ll help having it look somewhat normal.”

The doctors are encouraging other victims who want cosmetic surgery to make an appointment.
