It is absolutely incredible how good we are getting at doing transplants. In France, a 35-year-old man with a genetic disorder has an entirely new face including tear ducts that cry and a chin that sprouts stubble. This latest surgery was the first involving so many different facial features even replacing eyelids and tiny tear ducts. Wow, times have changed. I remember when I was a resident that they were trying to do eyelid transplants using the excess and discarded foreskins from circumcisions. These were for kids who were born without eyelids. It didn't work, however, as all the kids grew up to be cockeyed.
Ok, that was joke in bad taste.
