Injury doesn't damage beauty queen's outlook

(Continued)

LAUREL COUNTY, Ky. —

“She had had the same surgeries I was going to have,” Hubbard said. “She talked to me about the procedures.”

This did much to calm her fears.

Her next surgery will take place in Lexington, Ky., in about two months. Its primary goal will be to smooth the scars and advance the healing, Hubbard said.

From there, she will travel to New York for revision and removal with Dr. Nassif, who will follow up with a microdermabrasion surgery, also there. Hubbard then will be sent back to Lexington for a second laser surgery.

Surprisingly, Hubbard said her life is no different today than it was before she was bitten.

“They (scars) don’t bother me. I could go through my life with them,” she said. “I never placed an emphasis on outward appearances.

“I hope people don’t first notice what’s on the outside. I want to be noticed by my actions.”
