Joanna Paliospirou introduces us to her surgeon: "She made me"

By 2 months ago

Joanna Paliospirou has not only managed to move on with her life after the horrific vitriolic attack, but has also made new beginnings, including her own podcast and a burn support foundation.

At the same time, however, the medical rehabilitation marathon never ends, which is why in her new post on Instagram she decided to honour her doctor, for whom she does not hide her gratitude for being by her side.

So in her caption she writes:

"Guys, this is my doctor, Maria Kalofonou. She has cut me, she has sewn me, she has "made" me. Every time I stand next to her I swell with pride and admiration for her.

"It is so important that the patient feels safe in the hands of their doctor. You have won half the "game". I will never tire of shouting how much I thank her."

See the new post of Joanna Paliospirou:

37-year-old Efi Kakarantzoula was sentenced to 15 years in prison in October 2021 for the attempted murder of Joanna Paliospirou with acid in the Athens suburb of Kallithea in May 2020.

At the time, prosecutor Charalambos Mastrantonakis said the attacker executed her criminal plan “in a calculated manner. She had vile motives, murderous egoism and moral pettiness.”

He stressed that the type of acid that Kakarantzoula used and the way she executed her crime “leaves no doubt about her murderous intent.”

“The defendant did not want to ruin the face of Joanna [the victim], she ruined her life,” Mastrantonakis continued.

“When she threw the acid in her face, she accepted that it could be inhaled, swallowed, find its way to her trachea, and kill her,” he said, adding: “it was revenge that accepted the risk of death.”

Kakarantzoula claimed during the trial that she had no intent of killing Paliospirou.

She explained that stalked Paliospirou after suspecting her of dating a man with whom she had embarked on a sexual relationship in 2018.

She admitted to going to significant lengths to procure vitriol to the survivor’s place of work in an office building, saying she paid a man she met outside a shop in downtown Athens to get it for her.
