ABC loves its face transplants

Face
Earlier this month, ABC News’ “Boston Med” series wound down with the story of Jim Maki, a Boston man who received the nation’s second-ever face transplant surgery.

It was a luck of the draw for “Boston Med” cameras, which were already following the plight of Joseph Helfgot, who was looking to receive a heart transplant. When Helfgot died, his wife allowed Helfgot’s face to be donated and transplanted on Maki.

Now, ABC News’ Diane Sawyer has landed an exclusive interview with Connie Culp, who received the the nation’s first face transplant. Culp, who is now completing the final phase of her procedure, talks to Sawyer on Thursday’s “World News with Diane Sawyer.”

What does it all mean? Apparently ABC is Your Official Face Transplant Network.
