Will Lautzenheiser (L) hugs his partner Angel Gonzalez at a news conference to announce Lautzenheiser's successful double arm transplant at Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston, Massachusetts November 25, 2014. Lautzenheiser, a 40-year-old quadruple amputee, on Tuesday thanked the Boston surgeons who performed a rare dual arm transplant on him last month and described the experience of getting the new limbs as surreal. Lautzenheiser, who lost his arms and legs to a streptococcal infection in 2011, said he has limited function in the new arms, which are encumbered by wrappings to help with healing.

Gabriel Granados carries a ball during his physiotherapy session at Mexico City's Nutrition Hospital November 26, 2013. Two years after losing his arms to severe burns, a 53-year-old Mexican man is enjoying a new lease on life thanks to a rare double-arm transplant. Gabriel Granados arms were amputated just below the elbow after receiving a severe electrical shock. But in May 2012, nearly 20 medics, including five plastic surgeons, five nurses and three anaesthesiologists, performed a marathon 17-hour operation to attach two arms donated by a shooting victim. The operation was the first of its kind in Latin America with Granados having recovered the majority of movement in his arm from the operation following an extensive course of rehabilitation.

Dr. Emirali Hamiloglu (L) performs hair transplant on his patient Ceylani Kara while he is watching TV at a clinic of Esteworld, an aesthetic private hospital group, in Istanbul March 22, 2013. As it tries to boost tourism revenues and narrow its current account deficit, its main economic weakness, Turkey is on a mission to diversify away from the all-inclusive package tours to its sun-drenched Mediterranean shores which, local businesses complain, often do too little for the local economy. Of 37 million tourists visiting Turkey last year, about 270,000 came for surgical procedures from moustache implants to liposuction, generating $1 billion in revenues and representing a small but growing fraction of tourism receipts.

Surgeon James Guarrera prepares a donated harvested kidney to transplant into patient Adam Abernathy as part of a five-way organ transplant swap in New York, August 1, 2012. Abernathy's partner David Ferguson donated a kidney for transplant to a stranger while at the same time someone donated a kidney to Abernathy as part of chain of kidney donations that allowed five people to receive a transplanted kidney of a two day period. The health dangers for kidney donors is believed to be low. The risk of death from the surgery is 1 in 1,700, according to the National Kidney Foundation, and life expectancy is said to be unchanged with one kidney. Picture taken August 1, 2012.

Thomas Charney and his daughter Laura pose for a portrait at New York-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center June 15, 2012. Laura donated a kidney to her father and the two were recovering from surgery. Charney's kidney transplant is one of roughly 16,000 that take place each year, though National Institutes of Health statistics show less than 20 percent of the donations come from relatives who are living. At the moment, about 80,000 people are on the waiting list for a donation, according the New York-Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical Center. Picture taken June 15, 2012.
