VIDEO - Most extensive full face transplant to date completed

The most extensive full face transplant completed to date, including jaws, teeth, and tongue, was recently performed at the University of Maryland Medical Center. The 36-hour operation occurred March 19-20, 2012, and involved a team of over 150 physicians, nurses and professional staff. The transplant also included all the facial soft tissue from the scalp to the neck, so that the patient can move, feel and have normal facial expression.
