hi

Carmen Tarleton's husband attackerd her with industrial strength lye burning 80% of her body, doctors had to put her in a coma and perform over 50 surgeries to save her life, , but there was really nothing they could do for her face

Then 4 years later her plastic surgeon at Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston made a suggestion. He'd recently done the first facial transplant in the United States, and he thought it might work for her

She had a 15-hour transplant surgery in February, becoming the sixth person in the United States to get a full facial transplant,

Good for her but I hope they can still make it look better

HOLY. Wow. She was such a pretty girl before that monster came along. There are some very sick people in this world. She definitely looks better but yeah, still needs some work. Poor woman.

It kind of looks like they slipped one of those big thick rubber masks over her face

Are you insinuating it is her own fault? Maybe he was just plain evil.

I found a link health.yahoo.net...

." In 2007, the 44-year-old mother of two was attacked by her now ex-husband Herbert Rodgers, who believed she was seeing another man. Police say he went to the house looking for that man, then went into a fury directed toward Tarleton, striking her with a bat and pouring lye from a squeeze bottle onto her face. When police arrived, Tarleton was trying to crawl into a shower to wash away the chemical, which had already distorted her face.


Wow, so very sad.
