Charla Nash, the Connecticut woman who was horribly mauled by a chimp in 2009, gave her first post-operative interview to Sky News after receiving a groundbreaking face transplant.

The 20-hour transplant took place in May and addressed horrible wounds that Nash received from the berserk chimp. As a result of the attack, Nash's hands and portions of her face, including her nose and eyelids, were torn off. An attempt at a hand transplant failed, unfortunately.

Still, Nash seems remarkably upbeat about her new face, cheerfully noting that several people have even remarked how beautiful she is.
