La Visage de Francais...

Last May, she had a wide, tilted nose, a prominent chin and thin lips. Today, the donated face of suicide Maryline Saint-Aubert has given her a straight and narrow nose, a neater chin and a fuller mouth.
Hmmm... some things may be better left unsaid...

That quote from the story I saw this on Drudge and love how they coupled this photo with the story... classy.

But the article is full of tragically funny quotes from these nutty French surgeons.
Another of her surgeons, Bernard Devauchelle, said:
"She certainly does not look like the living dead. She's eating and drinking without dribbling."
Apparently we're making progress!
Especially when considering her previous lifestyle...
Dr Devauchelle and his colleagues faced ethical questions about the transplant. The fact that Miss Dinoire had attempted to commit suicide led critics to ask if she was psychologically robust enough to adapt to life with someone else's face.

As a single parent, she had struggled to cope with her daughters and, according to friends, spent most of her time chain-smoking in front of a TV.
Now she's a genuine French phenomenon
...like that GĂ©rard Depardieu dude...

Yikes, nevermind.

Without knowing what she looked like before, I would think anyone would have a problem dealing with this! Besides looking at an altered face with scars, you have people following you around (I bet!) trying to get you on film! It's amazing that it can be done, but I don't think I'd want to be in her shoes! The constant staring would be unbearable!
