From AAFPRS: The program works in collaboration with the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (AAFPRS) and benefits domestic abuse survivors who would otherwise be unable to afford such reconstructive care.
“I feel privileged and honored to be chosen by the NCADV,” said Dr. Benjamin Stong. “Being invited to use my experience and expertise in plastic surgery to assist survivors of domestic abuse move towards a brighter future is such a rewarding and honorable opportunity.” Domestic abuse and violence, including physical assault, battery, sexual assault and murder, continues to be a serious problem in the United States.
“I am excited to have Dr. Stong join me on the NCADV Advisory Council,” stated leading facial plastic surgeon Ben Talei of the Beverly Hills Center. “He is one of the best in the nation and I know he will make a tremendous contribution towards our special mission to help the victims of domestic abuse.”
The NCADV is the voice of victims and survivors who have experienced domestic abuse. The coalition is a nationally recognized voice for zero tolerance for domestic violence. To drive this movement, the NCADV believes in taking steps to affect public policy, helping others understand the impact of domestic violence and providing programs and educational opportunities to promote awareness of domestic abuse.
According to NCADV statistics, one person every three seconds is physically abused by an intimate partner, which equates to more than 10 million Americans. Furthermore, fully one in four of women and one in eight men have been victims of severe physical violence by an intimate partner. The Cosmetic & Reconstructive Support (CRS) Program™ of NCADV works with facial plastic surgeons from across the country who volunteer their services to assist survivors in removing the physical scars of abuse.
