The face of a 45-year-old donor, was used to the 19-year-old Ugur Acar a new look. The 19 year old boy running around all his life maimed because his face was almost completely burned by a fire blanket, when he was a baby 40 days old.

Turkish surgery team also performed Turkey's first double arm transplant in September 2010 and the world's first womb transplant from a cadaveric donor in August 2011 in Antalya City.
