Mary Jo Buttafuoco Undergoes Surgery to Get Her Smile Back, 25 Years After Attack by Husband's Teen Lover
Her incredible transformation will be revealed on Inside Edition.
Twenty-five years after Mary Jo Buttafuoco was shot in the face by her then-husband's teen lover, she's going under the knife to get her smile back.
Her incredible transformation will be revealed on Inside Edition Tuesday.
In an exclusive interview, Buttafuoco said she has struggled with self-esteem issues since she was shot by "Long Island Lolita" Amy Fisher in 1992, and left with a partially paralyzed face.
"Every day when you look in the mirror, are you reminded of the day you were shot?" asked Inside Edition's Victoria Recano.
"I'm always aware," Buttafuoco said. "As I'm talking to you, I'm aware of it."
Inside Edition was by Buttafuoco's side as she met with Dr. Babak Azizzadeh, a surgeon who has developed a pioneering procedure that he believes will fix the smile that haunts her daily.
Two months later, our cameras were there to see the results.
Tune in to Inside Edition Tuesday to see the shocking reveal. Check here for local listings.
