Dr. Kridel event at Saks Fifth Avenue

Saks Fifth Avenue, Houston Texas

On Thursday, April 8th Saks Fifth Avenue hosted a coctail reception to raise awareness for the Face Foundation.  Delicious lite bites were graciously donated by HauteBox Meals.   

The Face Foundation was founded in 1995 by Houston Facial Plastic Surgeon, Russell W.H. Kridel, MD, FACS to help victims of domestic abuse.

Injuries can be severe and are a daily reminder of living in violent situation. The Face Foundation is dedicated to improving the lives of men, women or children who are wearing physical scars of abuse. Victims of domestic abuse are provided with free reconstructive plastic surgery of the head, face and neck.

Coctail reception for the Face Foundation

The Face Foundation provides needed surgery to previous victims of abuse who are sponsored by these organizations:  The National Coalition for Domestic Violence, The American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery and the Face to Face Program.

The Face Foundation strives to obtain hospitals, nurses and anesthesiologists to donate their time, expertise, rooms and care needed for surgery. Yet, donations are always welcome to fund the costs of recovery, prescription drugs and printed educational material concerning reconstructive surgery and domestic violence that are not always cost-free.
