Caption: Face transplant. Conceptual computer artwork of a faceless woman holding a face mask that represents face transplantation. Transplanting faces requires advanced microsurgical techniques to connect the numerous muscles, blood vessels and nerves of the new face to the patient. The donor face would come from a dead person and the patient would have their existing face muscles, skin and fat removed. The technique could help those whose faces have been disfigured by disease or accidents such as burns. One major problem is the possible rejection of the new face by the patient's immune system. There are also psychiatric and ethical problems.
