A year after his face transplant



The nation's first full face transplant recipient says he can feel his daughter's kisses now, a year after the procedure. Dallas Wiens was burned in 2008 when his head touched a high-voltage power line while he was standing in a cherry picker. He also was blinded. Wiens says feeling his daughter's kisses has brought him to tears more than once. He also says he can go out with family and friends and not worry about what anyone thinks.
