Isabelle Dinoire
Combo of pictures (dated, at L February 6, 2006, at R from November 2006) of French Isabelle Dinoire, 39, a few months after her surgery operation carried out jointly by an Amiens and Lyon team who underwent the world’s first facial face transplant, and a year later. When Isabelle Dinoire received the transplant, doctors warned she might never be able to kiss again. Now the 40-year-old French woman can eat, speak and smile normally, according to “Isabelle’s Kiss,” a book on her odyssey released this week. Mixing narrative and interviews with Dinoire, the book takes the reader from the day the young woman was rushed to hospital in May 2005 after being disfigured by her dog, to the press conference the following February at which she revealed her new face to the world.

    I do love the way you have framed this specific situation and it does offer us some fodder for consideration. Nevertheless, coming from what I have witnessed, I only hope as the actual remarks pile on that folks stay on issue and in no way embark upon a soap box of the news du jour. Still, thank you for this fantastic point and even though I can not necessarily concur with it in totality, I regard the viewpoint.
