Dr Ebonie's surgical plan for Brooklyn's webbed toes includes separating the second and third toes on the left foot, as well as the fourth and fifth toes. Then she intends to perform the same thing with her right foot. Dr Ebonie wants to split Brooklyn's toes and cover up the scar with her own skin. However, she suggests a skin graft, namely for the toes she would be unable to cover post/during surgery.

Even though she is not convinced she would proceed with the skin graft, Dr Vincent begins to explain to Brooklyn that she might essentially use fish skin. Dr Ebonie affirms the potential of utilizing fish skin when Brooklyn inquires. Brooklyn does not appear to be thrilled with the prospect as she wants to avoid having fish skin on her body. Dr Ebonie tells Brooklyn that she would not notice the difference after it has healed. If she were to utilize human skin, she'd have to use Brooklyn's skin, which would result in an open wound. She adds that there are other different skin grafts available that she may use instead of sacrificing a section of Brooklyn's skin.

Dr Ebonie explains that fish skin is ideal for skin grafts because it is tough, and she will be able to handle it easier while sewing it to the patient's skin. Furthermore, fish skin is known to have very high omega-3, which is very healthy and lowers inflammation. The doctor will eventually merge it into Brooklyn's skin, and it will vanish. As a result, Brooklyn would not have scaly toes. She says that it would look and smell exactly like her toes, with no traces of fish.

Dr Ebonie prepares for the procedure after Brooklyn gives her consent. Dr Ebonie says at the end of the clip that she wanted to leave the session on a good note, but the dangers remain considerable. If the blood supply isn't there after she separates them, she can lose a toe.
