A disfigured woman is given a face transplant, which currently remains an experimental procedure:

“In the US, there are five institutions — Brigham and Women’s Hospital, the Cleveland Clinic, UCLA, the University of Maryland, and Johns Hopkins University — that are now either performing face transplants or actively recruiting their first patient. And for the surgeons leading these charges, the process has long been an all-consuming one. ‘If you only knew how much work goes into every single one of these,’ says Dr. Kodi Azari, chief of reconstructive transplantation at UCLA. ‘You can’t even imagine.’”
