Second Chance Surgeries, Inc., a 501c3 tax deductible charitable foundation, is meant to give individuals in developing and third-world countries a second chance at life by surgically repairing disabling or disfiguring facial deformities in adults and children.
We are a volunteer-based, not-for-profit organization committed to providing no-cost, high-quality medical, psychological, and surgical care for the health and well-being of individuals, both adults and children, with acquired and congenital facial deformities, especially cleft lip and palates.
Making a donation to Second Chance Surgeries, Inc., allows us to continue to provide specialized facial plastic surgery care to individuals with various facial deformities around the world. Without organizations like us, impoverished adults and children would not have the specialized facial plastic surgery care needed to lead a normal life. The impact made on the lives of children and their families cannot be stated highly enough. Here it is in the words of a mother of a child with cleft palate who sent this message to Dr. Majmundar:
Doctor, you have been an angel that God sent. Thanks to you the life of my son changed.
This process was very difficult for me. Very difficult because my BEAUTIFUL BABY was very difficult. Since week 33 of my pregnancy I almost had a miscarried I had to go through a lot for him to be born.
He, and my little 3 year old princess are the engine (motor) of my life the ones I will fight for even though I was left alone as a single mother. But I think that's not an inconvenience to stop fighting for them no matter what.
You doctor Mike are a person that can change the life of a lot of people like you changed mine, and son's. We won't be listening to those comments that hurt us anymore He will be a beautiful handsome boy.
Thank you for everything, I don't have how to help you. I ask God to keep giving you Wisdom, and that He will be your Guide in life. God bless you always. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. A thousand times thanks. I hope to be able to send you pictures of my little one.
Mom of J.E.S.G.
Based out of Atlanta, GA, Dr. Mike Majmundar, a double board-certified facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon, founded the organization to improve facial plastic surgery care to impoverished countries with individuals suffering from facial deformities, particularly cleft lip and palates.Donate Now
Over the last several years, we have made repeated trips to Central America to aid adults and children with acquired or congenital facial deformities.
These deformities range from scar revisions for facial burns or improving scars from previous cleft lip surgeries to surgeries lasting more than 6 hours to treat massive hemangiomas or large benign tumors disfiguring an entire face.
In addition to facial plastic surgery, Dr. Mike Majmundar also specializes in oculoplastic surgery (surgery involving diseases of the eyelids), facial trauma surgery, and facial skin cancer removals; all of these specialties have also been treated over the last several years to improve the ability of a newborn to close his eye or to reconstruct a large scalp skin cancer or to treat facial fractures after trauma.
The future is exciting. We are planning expansion of the countries we visit in Central America and fostering relationships in South America as well as Asia and Africa. Increasing the number of surgical specialists to assist in the areas we visit and increasing the amount of medical and surgical care we provide individuals in these poor areas.
