The Looming Controversy Surrounding Facial Transplant

nder if the new transplanted face would resemble the donor’s. It is indeed true that such a transplant can be performed only after ensuring that there is an acceptable level of match between the donor and recipient in terms of the blood group, tissue, skin color etc. But this does not mean that the donor and recipient would look alike. The unique arrangement of the bones of the face (recipient) would ensure dissimilarity of the ‘new face’.

The currently existing alternative for patients whose face has been disfigured beyond recognition is the skin graft method that is based on rebuilding the damaged part through muscular and skin flaps taken from elsewhere in the body (most commonly from the thigh and back). The only advantage of this procedure is that the problem of immune rejection is circumvented due to tissue compatibility.

Even while members of the medical community and the general public are arguing over the acceptance of face transplant, the option would seem much more compelling for somebody who would otherwise have to undergo at least 100 operations for restoration of their near normal facial appearance. It would impart a whole new confidence to individuals such as Isabelle Dinoire and Jacqueline Saburido and to chase their drems.
