Full face transplant patient appears in public

The world's first full face transplant recipient, identified only as Oscar, appeared in public for the first time at a press conference held at a Spanish hospital on Monday.

In March, University Hospital Vall d'Hebron performed the  transplant in an operation that took 24 hours. Oscar, whose face was severely injured in an accident, had undergone nine failed operations before being considered for the transplant.

Surgeons transplanted the entire facial skin and muscles, nose, lips, maxilla, palate, all teeth, cheekbones, and the mandible through plastic surgery and micro-neurovascular reconstructive surgery techniques, according to the hospital.

Although this is the first total face transplant, there have been partial face transplants in France, the United States, China and Spain.

    Together with every little thing that appears to be building inside this particular subject matter, a significant percentage of opinions are actually relatively exciting. However, I appologize, because I can not subscribe to your whole idea, all be it radical none the less. It looks to everyone that your commentary are actually not completely validated and in actuality you are generally your self not even thoroughly certain of your assertion. In any case I did take pleasure in reading through it.
