Face Transplant Patient, No Longer 'Living As A Recluse' After Surgery

quote:

The 36-hour surgery required replacing both jaws, teeth, tongue, and skin and underlying nerve and muscle tissue from scalp to neck, the release said. "People used to stare at me because of my disfigurement," Norris said. "Now they can stare at me in amazement and in the transformation I have taken. I am now able to walk past people and no one even gives me a second look."


Can't wait for this:

Norris was injured in a gun accident in 1997, according to NBC Washington. He lost much of his upper and lower jaws as well as his lips and nose.

That's awesome.

Reminds me of the chick that got her face torn off by that chimpanzee. Charla Nash.

It's amazing some of the shite that we (and our technology) are capable of.
