Face Transplant :: Face transplant woman doing well, can smile – update

Isabelle Dinoire, who had a partial face transplant a year ago, has recovered so well that she can go out without people noticing her scars, said her doctor, Professor Devauchelle, Centre Hospitalier Universitaire, Amiens, France. Isabelle says she is now able to smile.

Isabelle Dinoire, from Amiens, France, received the graft from a brain-dead donor after being mauled by her dog.

One year on, her surgeon Bernard Devauchelle said she continued to make excellent progress and that he had plans to carry out more operations.
