  1. Great job Dr.Joan Barret
    I remember an episode on I think it was TLC, it was called A New Face for Marley. I guess she got malled by a dog and she had a face transplant. Although, her face and donor had a resemblance, they did not look exactly alike.

    So I would have to agree with the previous post, if consent has been given there really are no issues.
