My face! My valuable face! Take my face... please!
Well, according to this New Scientist article, the first ever face transplant has been completed. Basically a woman, disfigured in a dog attack, has received the chin, lips and nose from a dead woman. I'm most interested in whether the facial components look more like the donor (owing to the shape of the skin), or more like the recipient (owing to the bone structure) or a hybrid of the two! Yikes!
