Tarleton Excited With Her New Transplanted Face

Tarleton Excited With Her New Transplanted Face

"It's really good to look in the mirror this time, compared to last time", said Carmen Tarleton after undergoing a face surgery. In 2007, when her husband smeared her face with lye, she lost her previous charm.

In her way towards recovery, she grappled with her new blemished face and her blindness. She was in a lot of pain and salivated almost persistently. The registered nurse and mother of two from Thetford, Vt., Tarleton, was injured in 2007.

She was attacked by her husband when he forcefully entered the house and started beating her with baseball. He then drenched her with lye making her face distorted and leaving her blind.

A team of more than 30 members were part of the surgery and spent 15 hours in transplanting facial skin, including the neck, nose, lips, facial muscles, arteries and nerves of the donor. After the surgery that was done in Tarleton hospital in Boston, she finds herself happy to meet reflection of her face. She is the fifth person in this hospital to undergo this surgery.

For the first time, she came on a show called" The Doctors". She explained how excited was she when she looked at her face after surgery which looked far better than the last time when she dared to look at its reflection. She plans to show her face to the world in a few weeks.
