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.
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.
