reconnect blood vessels

transplant heart


restore for instance fingers

underlaying unity

micro surgery

reconstruct breasts, in case of breast cancer with breast amputation, use tissue and bloodvessels from for instance belly abdomen, use it for the reconstructed breast, own tissue is better than sillicone, Result: improvement in quality of life


entire face transplantation

skin tissue has a high risk of being rejected, high dosis to surpress immune system, medications, high risk of infections

recent facial transplantations, whos gonna be a donor?, will the patient accept a new face, you will be a mixture of your self and partly of someone else, the face not my face
