@Joeyroey

Read my earlier post about the French woman. How her face looks now right after the surgery when there`s still some followup work to do, swelling to go down, etc, is not how she`ll look forever.

Even supermodels getting a nosejob look freaky right after the surgery.

I think she looks fantastic. After everything gets settled in and they can remove some of the extra tissue she will look just wonderful.

And even after all that face grafting technology, and putting a goddamn nose on her face, they still can`t figure out how to reduce her swollen cheek and neck size. Well, good for her I guess, she still doesn`t look normal, but its a start.

After it all settles in, they will go back and take up the slack. She ought to come out of it pretty well considering.

I still can`t believe her scumbag husband only got 7 years. I just hope he spends his time tossing salads and getting buttraped.

That`s amazing. I feel so sorry for her though on all that`s happened, but hopefully this will help her out a lot.

"Culp’s husband, Thomas, shot her in 2004, then turned the gun on himself. He went to prison for seven years."

wtf?

Husband only got 7 year for attempting to murder his wife.
That`s BS. Look what he did to her! He`s gonna get 7 years, but for the rest of her life she didn`t think she`d be able to even SMELL again (or taste food, since smelling is the most important aspect in taste).

"She loves to have cookies with a cup of coffee". That is probably the most touching part of that article. Something so ridiculously mundane that many of us do every day, and is taken for granted by us is important enough to her to be mentioned off-handedly in the article.

This is truly a heart warming story; to battle back from such an awful injury is so very touching.

Thank you for sharing it. :)

adidas0447, you`re just back from a month-long ban for referring to black people as monkeys, and you weigh straight in with this? Here, have a perm.

Slade8, she may still not look very good right now, but give it time. Remember that French woman who had the partial transplant?

http://www.smh.com.au/ffximage/2006/11/2...

On the left is how she looked shortly after the transplant. On the right is how she looks now; if you weren`t told, you`d never guess she`d had a transplant.

Give this woman time. I`m certain once all the remaining treatment is done she`ll look just as normal. I`m amazed at what they`ve done, and I`m very pleased for this woman.

"Wait, i didnt read all the article, so maybe i missed something...But how the hell dou you shoot yourself in the face? Arn`t shotguns like, 2ft long?"

Her husband shot her in the face and then turned the gun on himself.

And yes, shotguns are the worst weapon you can use for suicide.

She`ll look a lot better once they sort out her chin-flab. I can see the makings of a career as an Anjelica Huston lookalike.

The face actually absorbed the shotgun blast, it is not shocking to me that she survived that. I am shocked that she got her sense of smell back.

The transplant must not have included the tongue because she can talk fairly well.

I love it. This woman is so amazing.
And yeah, the husband did get off way too easy. It said he got seven years, and her operations took her five years. ( I think thats what I read) So.. he`s getting out soon, no?

@someguy83:
I do. That`s bull. but I don`t understand, because they say he turned the gun on himself, and also that he went to prison... So I`m guessing he fails at both homicide and suicide(with a shotgun, no less), and the jury was too busy making fun of his dumbass to give him a decent sentence.

She endured 30 operations to try to fix her face. Doctors took parts of her ribs to make cheekbones and fashioned an upper jaw from one of her leg bones.

jeez the poor woman, and what a bastard of husband, 7 yrs, for that ^^

That is cool but sad at the same time. I suppose the fact that the face is functional (being able to smell, breathe, eat, see) is more important than how it looks.
