Informed consent for facial transplantation

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterResearchpeer-review

Abstract

Facial transplantation is a complex and innovative technique still in its infancy, thus it is critical that the informed consent process has integrity. The patient population is vulnerable due to their desire for esthetic change amid a society that places much value on personal appearance. The technology of transplant, itself, requires an alliance between the doctor and patient due to matters of behavioral and medication compliance.
