Strange Medicine

Rita Hayworth gave good face, and she may be joined soon by many others if a radical new surgery catches on. Doctors in France have announced that they’ve performed the world’s first partial “face transplant”. The subject was a 38-year old woman who was a victim of a dog attack. Doctors transplanted the nose, lips, and chin of a woman who had been declared brain dead, with the approval of the deceased’s family. The resulting appearance, if the surgery is successful, will look like a combination of the deceased and the attack victim. The recipient of the grafted tissue wishes to remain anonymous.
