Interview with Women Who Had Full Face Transplant
In 2008, Connie Culp became the first person in the USA to undergo a successful full face transplant. Connie became horribly disfigured after her husband shot her in the face with a shotgun in a failed murder/suicide attempt. Connie’s face was destroyed after the shotgun blast shattered her nose, cheeks, mouth, lips and eye, but miraculously she escaped with her life.
The operation took 22-hours and 80% of Connie’s face was replaced with the face of a women that recently died. Doctors rebuilt her nose and were able to repair some of the disfigurement that Connie suffered to her face.
Here is a recent interview with Connie Culp, after her face transplant has had two years to heal:
Modern science is pretty amazing, but the most bizarre and shocking part of this story is that Connie claims to still love the man that blew her face off with a shotgun and plans to be there for him when he gets out of prison. WTF?!
