Cleveland Clinic performed its third face transplant on Katie Stubblefield when she was 21 years old. She is the youngest patient in the United States to receive a face transplant. The procedure replaced 100 percent of Katie’s face. Katie's story: https://cle.clinic/2MMVeDd

her face was very symmetrical and proportionate her nose,chin,teeth(smile),eyebrows, and eyes are very much desired in societies aesthetic of what is beautiful and is sought out by ppl with BDD,for example ppl undergoing rhinoplasty typically want her kind of nose.
I wonder if she's relief that she doesn't have to live up to such high expectations of being perfect anymore? Having made such a terrible mistake, other mistakes that she will make as she live through life would hopefully not be so fearful. Perhaps courageously living through this period of her life will help free her from all the worries and fears that lead to that choice.
This story is heartbreaking on so many levels. What a gorgeous girl before the incident, her whole life ahead & now she looks & acts like someone much older.... the regret of her actions must haunt her every time she looks in the mirror.
Bruh, no offence, but if I tried to kill myself, failed, and then I became unable to speak, see, barely walk, and at 22 looked like a 40 year old, I’d rather just die. Sometimes there are fates worse then death, and I think this is one of those fates. Sure, she may want to live now, but what kind of life is this? Being a medical breakthrough? Nah, not the life for me, I’d rather be dead than live like this. But all the luck for her in the future I guess.
Her parents are selfish and this girl is a dumbass. This video is utterly retarded. The girl shoots herself over a breakup. Moron. The parents keep her around even though she's disfigured and blind. Fools. If I'm the girl I apply for euthanasia and death with dignity not some stupid face transplant you can't even see anyways.
The medical community creates such havoc when they save people who should have been left to die in the first place. Now, they have tortured her more with a “body part” from a cadaver that requires expensive drugs and continued medical help throughout her life. This is an example of the medical community being insane! I’m sorry she suffers from depression. They all should have let her die. What a horror. She won’t last with that new face, mental illness and constant medications to keep the face from rejecting. Awful situation perpetuated by the family and medical community.
Unless she got some added functionality from the transplant it doesn't seem like it was worth it. In cases like this they should just make extremely realistic masks based on how they looked before the accident.
She went from being a young girl to looking like she's middle-aged. Not just the face (which is obviously still way better than it was right before the surgery) but the way she dresses and stuff, it's weird.
That emotional pain is the worst pain u can ever feel in ur life. It can take ur life apart faster than drugs and it can hurt u for life yrs after the hurtful situation is over. The best cure is to allow yourself to become stronger and don’t become emotionally involved, because people will ultimately break u down if ur not strong enough
Did they remove her eyes during the transplant? That kinda defeats the purpose of the transplant if the patient themself can't see their new face right? Unless there were issues with the new face and the position of her eyes after the accident, or she was blind before the transplant.
Wow... I hope people feeling like giving up see this...Nothing on Earth is worth destroying yourself like this...this is very disturbing...this woman had Everything to look forward to...and this is coming from someone who's had a Lifetime of suffering... I'm not being judgemental, I just know with the right help you can bounce back... there's Many, Many young women who Never had the opportunities this young lady had, and Still found a way to beat the odds...shout out to the doctors...they are Amazing.... I'm glad she's doing Alot betta...my heart goes out to her family...their strength is something We can All learn from...this is kind of a side bar, but... that's unbelievable how much damage a gun can do...when I watch crime shows and they describes what someone looks like after being shot in the face, it's a little hard to really imagine if you never saw Anyone that disfigured...WOW...if this isn't enough to ban guns Nothing will be...
So many people are saying she got the face from an old woman. Like that’s more important than being alive. The donor was Andrea Sinclair 31. Hardly “old”. Her family have given this girl the most precious of gifts. That’s what’s important. If you Google National Geographic Andrea Sinclair face donor you can easily see her.
So.. what do they do with the donor's head? There's still blood flow or whatever it's called, since the face can't survive the transplant if it's dead.. so do they stitch the donor up? I mean, do they just leave the body as it is or what happens? I'm really curious, sorry for being weird..
remember this video if you want to kill yourself by shooting in the head. draw an invisible line of where the gun will destroy and make sure it takes as much brain matter as possible. don't fuck it up, I believe in you.
If you are planing to kill yourself over a boyfriend then you should do it already you are definitely not ready to face serious life problemes. Cancer, war. Poverty. Loss i dont mean a stupid breakup!! How can you service if you have lost your child?? Rapist, violence, un treatable illness??? Killing yourself over a boy is like killing yourself over a fuel. Stupid pathetic selfish girl. You put your parents in hell tortured them everyday seeing their little girl like that only cause of stupid guy!!!!!! Why! Why!
Couldn't even successfully kill herself. Pathetic. If you're going to kill yourself make sure you complete the job or you will end up worse off than you were before. Find a tall building or a high mountain and jump off or if you want to shoot yourself at least put a rope around your neck and tie it to something strong so that after you shoot yourself you will continue to hang from the neck. Come on people, tragedies like this are preventable with proper suicide planning.
So many emotions from watching this, some of them not so great.
First one, holy shit her face is gone,secondly wow 60 people working on it, they must have great insurance and thirdly I thought maybe she aimed like that on purpose so her outsides would match how badly she thought of herself inside...then I cried
You can say whatever you move conscerning Sam Sam and the other sisters. ! Loved you bomb everyday. Know your family hates me cause of Paul !! Good luck you bad brothers ! I laugh cause you guys are so sleep and really don’t actually love. Your mother was the ONLY one that tried to teach you better. She was called a “busybody “by Paul. He’s the biggest busybody of all hahahahaha LOL 😆😂😂🤔
You Perrymans don’t care about people . That’s all completely Paul Perrryman ! He’s just greedy, not honorable at all though I tried !! He used his brother Jystin till the end.i actually loved Justin Lee Perryman and knew his heart. Your a pity Paul Perryman !!!! 😢😢😢
We usually never know what goes through a persons head as they commit themselves to the last fateful actions that lead to the decision to take their own life. It is very easy to criticize and judge. Every suicide attempt is just tragic. I stress to my kids that there is never a situation that they can't talk to me about. There is never a situation in your life [youth] that can't be overcome.
For some reason this young woman felt that there were no other alternatives for her but the one she choose that day. This should serve as a life lesson for us all. Be well Katie.
So tragic. That in itself is the reason America NEEDS to ban guns from civilian use. A senseless, reckless decision that impacted everyone, because she had access to a gun. So much unnecessary suffering.
I have a different outlook on this. Fate works in very strange ways..
Perhaps this had to be done for the doctors and surgeons to advance in face transplanting..and meant for this young woman to understand that life is nothing that we should take..
She is a survivor to her own hands. And there is a good reason for that. ♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡
Lemme guess... she went for the "BAD" boyz..and had her little selfish heart broken. Then, she tried to kill herself, which would have solved what? Besides hurting her own family of course. Well, had she had enough common sense to date decent men (translation in 2018: nice guys.. not talking looks here btw..) then this never would have happened.
The class of drugs that Levitra, Viagra, Stendra, and Cialis belong to are called PDE5 inhibitors. They work by relaxing tight blood vessels, allowing more blood to surge into the penis and cause an erection, says Gregory Bales, M.D., an associate professor of urology at the University of Chicago.
The little pills do the trick for more than two-thirds of men with Viagra protects the heart (ED). They also work for guys who simply need them for a short time to get their “confidence back,” says Michael Eisenberg, M.D., director of male reproductive medicine and surgery at Stanford University.
