Please watch: Sheila Nirenberg: A prosthetic eye to treat blindness It is possible to restore vision to give a person the ability to, say, see the face of their daughter. We're making amazing progress towards recreating all the things we have naturally, with the aid of biotechnology.

The DVabel could he qualify for the bionic eyes

Because he has all of this new tissue that has no feeling yet, his lips, and he has to talk around them for now. He's kind of like a stroke victim at this point until the nerves generate and give him control of his own mouth, at which point he'll be able to talk without the slurring.

On another video they state that with time, his speech will return to normal

When face transplants are completed, you don't resemble how you looked before, or the donor. It doesn't raise serious ethical questions, because it's just like any other transplant. Heart transplants and face transplants are equally as important. Sure a heart transplant helps keep you alive... but if your face was seriously disfigured like his was before, could you continue to live? I don't think there are many who could. Some day we'll see this surgery perfected and they will look amazing.

I totally agree. In fact, I can't believe scientists and doctors can be so seemingly dismissive about the fact that regardless of what people think, those who undergo face transplants, are basically wearing someone else's face. I wonder do the patients who undergo having someone else, who died, face placed on their own - do they ever think of the people whose faces that they have sewed onto their own flesh? Or not? It raises serious ethical questions.

mucho respecto!!
yxoxuxxtxuxbxe (6 лет назад)
wow that is amazing when this becomes a well worked out thing for people that lost their face or at least most of it then the relatives of the donor might see their relatives face on a other person which might be hard to take

He went from only having a skull for a face to looking like a stroke victim. A really terrible terrible stroke, but that's absolutely amazing.

@DLarson1083 the "fat" is post op swelling, if you look at the other videos of face transplants they all have the swelling in the neck and cheeks
Hamoodi (6 лет назад)
didn't he talk alot better before...
NajaRistiina (6 лет назад)
Are the mouth going to be like... alive or something after a while? Like they are moving when he is talking? So he can talk clearly?
Kellie Altieri (6 лет назад)
@CALICOTV301 Those are the same exact things I think of. I don't know if I would be able to go through this surgery for those reasons. Shallow? Maybe but, if I were a member of the donor's family, I don't know if I would be able to handle it. I dunno - I'm on the fence about either argument. It's an amazing procedure - life saving? Maybe, in some aspects but, it's not like a heart transplant or kidney transplant or something like that. Ya know what I mean?

Kyle Boudreau (6 лет назад)
man that guy makes me happy, as well does anyone else who's been seriously disfigured/injured and has been given a second chance of well-deserved, normal life, everyone should watch this video and stop and think about how good their life really is, people like Dallas have faced death, disfigurment and serious injury but have made it through and are living happy, joyous lives.

Thank you SCIENCE for this miracle!

@kooldaug It's the nerves, there is no control because some important nerves from the one side of the face were probably too damaged to be repaired.
Trash Can Prince (6 лет назад)
@kooldaug I think it's because from the way his face is built, the way they had to attach the face added kind of a strange tilt in the mouth. Nobody is exactly the same, and this proves it.

why is his mouth lop sided?
cottonfever1221 (6 лет назад)
Its a good thing he cant see because it maybe a shocking site to see what he looks like or what he did at one time look like,Hopefully after some time his vision can be restored after he's used to his new appearence so the shock of everything all at once would be a bit easier. This is NOT an insult about his eyesight,its just my take on how much harder it would have been with having eyesight while disfigured and the shock of a new face is all I mean to say.

@Cutegurl111792 Yeah, i hope so. Pretty sure it will take it's time.
Fl0 (6 лет назад)
