    Isabelle Dinoire, recipient of the world's first partial face transplant, speaks at a press conference in Amiens, France, on Monday. The 38-year-old Frenchwoman underwent the surgery in November after being mauled by her dog.

    "Since the day of the operation I have had a face like everybody else," Dinoire said, according to Reuters. "I am now able to open my mouth and eat. Recently, I have also been able to feel my lips, my nose, my mouth."
