I hope this works because it would be a blessing for people that have been disfigured. It sounds scary and painful though. :eek:

It's possible--they've actually done a partial one, i believe. The big danger is that the immune system suppressants that would keep your body from rejecting your new face leave you open to a host of otherwise non-fatal infections & diseases.

I am really going to watch this story. I hope it works out well for the patient and the doctor.
