Face Transplants? (http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/health/4259538.stm)

I mean...it's kinda cool for people with severely disfigured faces I suppose...but it creeps me the crap out. They'll be wearing a dead persons face. O_o

Creepy. Sounds like a hard thing to do.

uh... I think I'd probably keep a disfigured face over having to take anti-rejection drugs for the rest of my life (if I ever had a face-disfiguring accident... but I'm hoping to avoid that :p )

There's serious health issues there, methinks..... not to mention it's sorta creepy :eek:

In my work, I've seen people who would probably rather have a cadavers face in place of what they have.

I'd probably just kill myself. Wearing parts of someone elses face doesn't sound like something I'd want to do.

That's pretty disgusting. How could you live with yourself, thinking that your face wasn't really yours?

I saw this a while back. I think on Discovery Channel.

Just wierd. REALLY wierd.

It would suck if you ended up with Michael Jacksons face. ew

I wan't to take his face, off.

Hmm nice. I can't see the beniftes of this really, can't plastic surgury and skin grafts already fix up peopls faces?

All of you people saying "omfg gross how could you do that?" need to realize that this isn't for people who just want to try something different. It's not like one of these "what do you get for the man who has everything" types of situations. It's for severely disfigured people. You know, folks that if it weren't for something like this, probably had slim to none chances of ever getting laid. Ask someone who got drunk and attempted suicide with a shotgun and survived if they think this is a disgusting idea. People have donated their organs on the back of their drivers liscences for years with little to no protest from anyone. People donate blood. People donate semen ffs. I think this is a great idea. Now if they'd just start transplanting humongous ***** to people...

I don't think they'd be able to find a willing donor, dead or alive :p

... I thought I felt something poking my prostate...


It's not that I find the idea of the transplant gross or anything. I just don't think I'd want to live disfigured, period, let alone without looking like myself. Same as I couldn't live without one of my limbs.

Having the face of a deadman would scare the crap outta me.

I think it's nice that people who need it can have this oppurtunity. :)

The identity issues might be a problem, too. I mean, disfiguring accident or no: having someone else’s face would be mentally upsetting (though, like CapNColostomy stated, it would be saving grace for someone who's face has been destroyed).

If they survived then they missed their face, a shotgun will do alot of damage.

You've obviously not been in a hospital's emergency sector.

Ummm...No. I talk to a guy who didn't miss his face with a shotgun every day. And yes, it did alot of damage. But thanks for your attempt to seem like some sort of firearms expert anyway.

Well, you won't look like the other person because your face will be a different shape than the donors, the skin would wrap around your face and change the appearance, you won't look like them, nor yourself.
