Boston Hospital Performs Nation's First Full Face Transplant
More than 30 doctors, nurses and other staff at Brigham and Women's Hospital led by plastic surgeon Dr. Bohdan Pomahac
performed the 15-hour operation last week on 25-year-old Dallas Wiens of Fort Worth, Texas. He was listed in good condition
at the hospital today.
The electrical accident in November 2008 left Wiens blind and without lips, a nose or eyebrows.
In Boston, doctors transplanted an entire new face, including a nose, lips, skin and muscles and nerves that animate the
skin and give sensation. The donor's identity was not disclosed nor would the hospital say exactly when the surgery was done
for privacy reasons. (Aol News)
I wonder now if dead celebrities will have their face sold to the highest bidder?
