Amalia Mendoza, center, wearing her new face for the first time, is accompanied by her daughter Rocio, left, and financial consultant for the surgeon Betsy Torres-Alicea, right, after leaving the surgeon's office to show off her new look. The first question Mendoza asks everyone she meets is how does her face look. 'They say I look pretty, totally transformed, almost the way I used to look before the accident,' Mendoza said.
