Steal Your Face

A doctor at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center today announced that "face transplants" are a matter of when and not if. In other words, people in the near future can have a dead guy's face if there's is deformed enough. Am I the only one who's completely freaked out by this?

To be fair, the article did say that this is not for cosmetic purposes. But you know this medical development will eventually be used in a personal capacity. I'm sure there was a time when rhinoplasty was for medical reasons only. Man, the prospect of someone getting a new face as easily as a nose job still freaks me out. Kudos goes out to these doctors, who are slightly concerned with this ridiculousness:

Other surgeons say there should be a national policy on face transplants before the procedure becomes a reality. They note face transplants would carry significant psychological and social ramifications.

I'd also like to see a national policy on face transplants. I don't know exactly what that would entail, and I don't even really want to know. And I hope it's nothing like the national policy on penis reduction surgery.

If you're also concerned about this development, write your local representative at the National Policy Center for Face Transplants and express your feelings. Don't run away from your feelings, Richard.
