Look At Baby girl born with massive adult-sized tongue smiles for first time after life-changing surgery (photos)


A toddler, Paisley Morrison-Johnson, who suffered from a rare condition which made her tongue to grow more than twice the size of her mouth has had a surgical procedure to correct the condition, and for the first time smiled after the surgery.

The condition was so bad that even after surgeons cut away some part of the tongue, it still grew back and covered her mouth.


Doctors diagnosed Paisley as being born with Beckwith Wiedemann Syndrome (BWS) – an overgrowth disorder that affects one in every 11,000 births worldwide.

Because of Little Paisley's bad condition, she needed a breathing apparatus for the first week of her life to stop her from choking to death. and ad to be fed with a gastronomy-tube until she was six-months-old - because she couldn't eat normally and needed vital nutrients to keep her alive.

Her parents Madison Kienow, 21, and Shannon Morrison-Johnson, 23, from Aberdeen in South Dakota, USA, paid for her second tongue reduction surgery which had more than six inches of muscle removed after hoping in vain that their daughter's mouth would grow to accommodate her overgrown tongue
