13 Before And After Photos Of People Who Had Facial Transplants


There are dozens of people whose faces have been destroyed or burned for various reasons. Facial transplant operations carried out by taking faces off cadavers are a great hope for these people.

Here are before and after photos of 13 patients who have had face transplant operations from all over the world:

1. Patrick Hardison was the first person who had an extended-facial transplant in the world.


As a former firefighter, while performing his duty, he lost his eyelids, ears, lips, nose, and beard. He suffered heavy burn injuries in 2001 after the house he had rushed into collapsed on top of him.

2. This man, known only as Rafael, is a Spanish farmer suffering from neurofibromatosis, received a partial-face transplant in 2010.
