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.
