Baby girl born with a massive ADULT-SIZED tongue smiled for the first time after life-changing surgery.


Little Paisley Morrison-Johnson was born with such a huge organ in her mouth that she needed breathing apparatus for the first week of her life to stop her from choking to death.

Her rare condition caused the little girl's tongue to grow more than twice the size of her mouth.

Even after surgery to slice parts of it away, it continued to grow back and still hung out of her mouth.

She was diagnosed as having been born with Beckwith Wiedemann Syndrome (BWS) – an overgrowth disorder that affects one in every 11,000 births worldwide.



Eventually Paisley had her second tongue reduction and has smiled for the first time after having a total of more than six inches of muscle removed.

"During her second reduction surgery a massive amount of her tongue was removed and thankfully now it goes completely into her mouth", says her mother.
