What Happened to Brooklinn Khoury?

March 21, 2024

Brooklinn Khoury has been open about her recovery since her cousin's pit bull bit off her upper lip in November 2020. The model has undergone a series of reconstructive surgeries since then, and has been documenting her progress on Instagram.

On the day of the attack, the 23-year-old was hanging out with her cousin and her dog Diesel when she reached down to pet him — as she'd done many times before. She says the pit bull sprung up and sinking his teeth into her face. The next thing she remembers is waking up in the hospital with blood everywhere.

Over the past two years, the California native has shared a number of photos and videos on social media showing her healing process. She reveals that doctors used skin grafts from her wrist and forearm to reconstruct her new upper lip, as well as her nose. She's also opened up about the emotional toll of the attack.

The model recently revealed that she may be done with her reconstruction surgery, and is looking forward to focusing on other aspects of her life. In a video, she talks about how her experiences have changed her ideas about beauty.

In the clip, Brooklinn explains that she doesn't want to focus on achieving perfect beauty, and that she wants to feel confident in her own skin no matter what it looks like. She also notes that she's been able to fall in love with her boyfriend, skateboarder Corey Lukasiak, which helped to keep her positive throughout the difficult time.
