Dallace Wiens found himself in a tragic electrical fire. His face was desecrated, leaving him with a missing place to see, smell and feed himself. Yes – Dallas was left without a mouth, eyes, or a nose.

For two years he made the most of his circumstance – he ate through a tube and learned to function without eyesight. When he learned that facial transplants were possible, he began considering the merits of giving it a shot.

Dr. Lawrence K. Altman offered to perform a transplant for Dallas at the Brigham & Women’s hospital. Despite the inherent risks, Dallas chose to pursue the opportunity.

After hours of surgery, Dallas’ nose, mouth and skin was restored. Now, his face has a typical oval shape, and he considers himself lucky. In his own words Dallas believes, “There is life after tragedy. My entire life is a miracle.”
