Oscar’s Face Transplant In Pictures

by | 26th, July 2010

AT the Vall d’Hebron in Madrid, the man known to the media only as Oscar, 31, shows the result of his full face transplant. It took medics 24 hours to remove the donor’s face and place it on Oscar’s head. Oscar needed the treatment after accidentally shooting himself in the face in 2005. He can drink and speak, although not yet that well. He wants to do “little things, like walking down the street without anyone looking at him, or sitting down for a meal with his family. Doing things that all of us do on a normal day.

(Hollywood plastic surgeons await demand for the next big thing.)
