A man injured in a shooting accident received the entire facial skin and muscles - including cheekbones, nose, lips and teeth - of a donor.

This kind of thing has a certain degree of taboo attached to it, I think that its unbelievable that modern medical science has achieved this. Whether the person that needs a face transplant was born with a deformity or whether they were in an accident that left them disfigured. This Type of Medical advancement could change thier lives and give them some sort of normality.
