Casseus suffers from a rare form of polyostotic fibrous dysplasia, a nonhereditary, genetic disease that causes bone to become "like a big a bowl of jelly with some bone inside," said Dr. Jesus Gomez of University of Miami School of Medicine, one of the doctors involved in the operation.
Doctors said it was necessary to operate immediately or she would go blind.
Gomez said doctors would start with the left side of Casseus' skull and carve away the ballooning fibrous mass that had stretched and distorted her face, spreading apart her teeth.
If the operation is successful, they will seek to reconstruct the right side of her face and then later reconstruct her swollen jaw.
Doctors have performed such operations before, but rarely on a growth so big, Gomez said. Only about 3 percent of the 150,000 people diagnosed with the disease worldwide suffer such an extreme condition, he said.
Back home in Port-au-Prince, Casseus faced not only physical suffering but rejection by her neighbors.
"She was treated like an animal. If she was walking on a sidewalk, people would cross the street," Gomez said.

"I would say that the major reconstruction, the major risk, for surgery ... is already over," said Dr. Jesus Gomez, a University of Miami surgeon.
During the surgery, which took place at Holtz Children's Hospital, doctors narrowed the separation between Marlie's eyes and formed the bridge of her nose and upper lip, Gomez said.She can now breathe through her nose and close her mouth, though not fully.
Remnants of the mass that were deep in her face were also removed during the latest surgery, Gomez said Friday.
During previous operations doctors rebuilt the interior of her nose and inserted metal plates to reconstruct her lower eye sockets as well as a plate to recreate the joint that allows her to open and close her mouth.
Marlie will likely still need two more major surgeries as well as dental reconstruction, Gomez said.Future surgeries will work on her jaw and improve her profile, and doctors still have to remove breathing and feeding tubes.Gomez estimated the total cost of the operations would be around $500,000.

Marlie will come back to Miami in two years for additional surgeries on her nose and jaw and to receive dental implants, said Dr. Jesus Gomez, the University of Miami medical school maxillofacial surgeon who has led Marlie's surgical teams.
Doctors are waiting two years to continue the reconstruction to give her skull time to stop growing.The mass that threatened her life has not shown any sign of regrowth, Gomez said Tuesday at a hospital news conference.
"If everything continues in the same way, in the same fashion, we're going to be able to finalize the reconstruction of the face in the next two years," Gomez said.
Marlie rejected a copy of the board game "Operation."She underwent four surgeries this year at Holtz Children's Hospital in Miami to remove the growth, recenter her eyes and define her nose.In October, surgeons replaced a previously implanted titanium plate in her jaw to tighten her mouth and give her back the ability to swallow and attempt to speak.A feeding tube into her stomach was scheduled to come out Thursday.
A synthetic skeleton made of hard polymer implanted under Marlie's eyes looks like normal cheekbone under her skin.A thin, pale scar outlines her flattened nose, and her lips close in the shape of a diamond.
Marlie suffers from a rare form of polyostotic fibrous dysplasia, a nonhereditary genetic disease that causes bone to swell and become jelly-like.The condition affects her entire skeleton: she is bowlegged and short for her age, and her fingers and feet are swollen and crooked.
