These photos show Connie Culp after an injury to her face, left, and then as she appears today. Culp underwent the first face transplant surgery the United States at the Cleveland Clinic in Ohio. Culp spoke to the media at a news conference at the Cleveland Clinic. The 46-year-old mother of two lost most of the midsection of her face to a gunshot in 2004.
