BOSTON -

Face transplant recipient Carmen Tarleton will reveal her new face Wednesday.

The Thetford woman was badly disfigured when her estranged husband doused her with industrial-strength lye in 2007. Since then, she has had more than 50 operations. And in February she got a full face transplant at Brigham and Women's hospital in Boston.

Wednesday, Carmen Tarleton will reveal her new face. She will be joined by the donor's daughter.
