WATCH: The Face Of The Future Of Plastic Surgery

WARNING: The beginning of this story is super depressing, but it gets better.  

A 21-year-old guy in Wyoming shot himself beneath the chin with a rifle and survived!  Andy Sandness was super depressed when he attempted suicide in 2006.  A plastic surgeon tried to reconstruct his face - which was missing a nose, jaw, and all but two of his teeth - over eight surgeries, but couldn't quite put it back together.  

Fast forward to June 16th when Sandness became the Mayo Clinic's first face transplant recipient in a 56-hour surgery.  Talk about a miracle!  Check out his transformation below.
