Performing a face transplant requires expertise in both facial reconstruction and microvascular technique. The best way to approach the microsurgical aspects of face transplantation is to break them into smaller parts. Defining microsurgery loosely as procedures typically done under a microscope, this chapter will describe the details dealing with the arteries, veins, and nerves of face transplantation from anatomy to the technical aspects.
