Want a new face?
Researchers are studying antirejection drugs as a recent interest in hand transplants increases the possibility that a face transplant could be conducted soon.
If only they’d come up with a drug that would stop people from rejecting their current face – so that the face transplant wouldn’t be necessary to begin with!
I would really hope that face transplants would be used in the extreme event of severe burns, disfigurement, birth defects, etc. Not that someday I wake up and want to look like Selma Hayek. I wonder if she’d consent to me having her face? If we traded faces for awhile – – would it be reversible? Like…borrowing her face for Halloween, or something?
Gawd. Time for me to go to bed already!

i don’t think she’d mind you having her face as long as you didn’t get her into any trouble.
By the way, nice skin! 🙂
Kind of like the movie ‘Face Off’ with John Travolta and Nicholas Cage, hey? Haven’t seen it? It’s a good one!
Thanks, SwtGAHB. 🙂
I was just going to say it sounds like “Face Off” which is a great movie, but the reality of it – – well that is something all together different. As you wrote for those in need, burns/defects what have you then yes, but just to do it. I don’t think so.
I do so wish there was something for those with severe burns/defects. My first cousin was burned severly when she was in her early 20’s and although she has had so much plastic/reconstruction it does only so much.
