World's first face transplant

By Brandigal (Donna)     Nov 27, 2006 in Health
Woman with a new face transformed in 40 weeks
After undergoing the world's first face transplant, Isabelle Dinoire makes her first public appearance.
The operation took 15 hours and a 50-strong surgical team.
She became disfigured after her pet labrador attacked her while she was unconscious after an overdose. Her appearance was so shocking that people would stare and even recoil in horror. Now no one can even tell.
She is now able to feel hot and cold and is able to lead a normal life.
Her was was donated from a suicide victim.
Amazing what modern medicine can do today. This can help alot of burn victims I believe also.
