Isabelle Dinoire's face transplant was recently deemed a success by the surgeons who performed her operation. Dinoire had the operation last November after being mauled by her dog.

A team of surgeons at the Cleveland Clinic, in Ohio, have performed the first near-total face transplant in the US. Very little information is available right now, but the surgeons scheduled a press conference for tomorrow.

Check it: The CNN story on the US face transplant also has before and after photos of Isabelle Dinoire, the French face transplant patient. She looks pretty darn good, I think.

**The CNN story was updated today (12/17/08). Still no details on the patient or the reason for the transplant, but more on the surgery and the surgeons.
