Face Transplant Surgery
Plastic Surgery can be a very entrepreneurial specialty, and sometimes, that can be a good thing. Such is the case of a recent reconstructive surgery you may have heard about, the first Face Transplant in the U.S. I found the story both fascinating as a plastic surgeon, but also very touching as a human being. If you haven’t read about this amazing story of a Fort Worth man who suffered from a severe electrical burn deformity to his face. Interestingly, this complex surgery was paid for by the U.S Military in hopes to learn from the process in order to help soldiers with severe facial wounds.
