FACE TRANSPLANT UPDATE

Yesterday (2/6/06) the recipient of the transplant spoke to media about her ordeal. The face is of course a bit odd but all things considered, seems to have been attached pretty successfully. It's only by viewing the before and after photos that you can see that it truly is a new face, rather than someone whose own face had been repaired. The main problem seems to be that she is not yet able to move her new mouth very well in order to speak... I'm not sure what the prognosis is there. She admitted to having taken pills (hence the reason she was unconscious enough for her dog to eat her face), and yes, sadly, she is still smoking.
