Brooklinn Khoury has opened up about her healing journey a year after she was attacked by a dog which ripped off her upper lip and parts of her nose. In early November 2020, pro skateboarder and model Brooklinn Koury’s cousin in Gilbert, Arizona, invited her to visit for a relaxing trip filled with girl time and hanging by the pool.
So on Nov. 3 of last year, the cousins got their nails done and ran some errands. They were in the car driving home when Khoury snapped a selfie. Self-conscious of a small zit near her mouth, she cropped her lip out of the photo.
Back at her cousin’s home, Khoury was standing in the kitchen when she went to pet her cousin’s dog, an 8-year-old blue nose pitbull named Diesel, who she had met many times before.
Here’s everything you need to know about Brooklin, who explained the details of her surgical procedure.
