Now we are confronting the imminent possibility that human faces will be transplanted. This month in The American Journal of Bioethics, a team of transplant surgeons at the University of Louisville announced their intention to pursue the transplantation of faces. Last year, a task force at the Royal College of Surgeons of England cautioned against them.
The British group concluded that "until there is further research and the prospect of better control of complications, it would be unwise to proceed with human facial transplantation," a procedure that requires review board approval.
Wasn't this a movie with Nicholas Cage & John Travolta? I believe it was called "Face Off."
Of course, there was "Darkman", and I'm sure there were others LONG before these two.
