According to Crowley, 25, he was "glassed" in the face by an unprovoked drunk man. Using the iPhone app, "Everyday" to document the process and converting all the photos into a time-lapse video, the 3-4 inch scar seems to miraculously fade away in due time. Online commenters are calling Crowley's video an inspiration to those facing reconstructive surgery after a trauma.
Crowley had only undergone only one surgery session the morning after the incident, which had lasted about four hours. The last photo in the time-lapse, where the scar appears to be completely healed, was taken merely seven months after the surgery.
"While damage after surgery/an assault may look bad initially, after months of healing the scars dramatically improve," wrote Crowley.
The man who had attacked Crowley was given a "custodial sentence to serve."
