Face Transplants?

LYON, France - Doctors in France said they had performed the world’s first partial face transplant, forging the way into a risky medical frontier by operating on a woman disfigured by a dog bite.

The 38-year-old woman, who wants to remain anonymous, had a nose, lips and chin grafted onto her face from a brain-dead donor whose family gave consent. The operation, performed Sunday, was led by a surgeon already famous for a transplant breakthrough, Dr. Jean-Michel Dubernard.

I think this is the next step Michael Jackson will take.
