It has been just over one year since his break through face transplant surgery he received by Dr. Guo and his team in Xi?an. After Dr. Guo Shuzhong completed China's first face transplant surgery in 2006 both he and his hospital in Xi'an have become a household name both throughout China and the international cosmetic surgery community. These days Dr. Guo's hospital is consistently full of patients requiring both reconstructive and cosmetic surgeries. Dr. Guo who has more than twenty years of clinical experience, further broadened his horizons by studying and visiting plastic surgery clinics in the US for over two years, today he is one of the worlds leading plastic surgeons.
