The World’s First Face Transplant

  • Published 2 years ago

This documentary tells the tale of a 37 year old Isabelle Dinoire, who became the first person in the world in November 2005, to receive a face transplant.

The French surgeons went against every ethical committee in the world to perform this operation, spurring a fervent debate over the ethics of this surgery.

The ethical society debated that the face is a sacred identity of a person and they are not life-changing operations and hence should not be allowed to happen.

The film explores some intriguing questions such as whether the risks outweigh the benefits, and whether face transplants are really in the best interest of the patient.
