Facing something is a culture of thinking, a resilient and rebellious posture in the face of adversity. Facing faces is in the same mind and spirit, an enabler to give back function, shape and dignity to the disfigured faces. The french acronym IFF, which may be pronounced «if», «What if ?», is also this bold statement «Pourquoi pas ?», a research and education centre devoted to disfiguration.

Connecting within an advanced technological platform, welcoming searchers around the world to imagine the future of reconstructive surgery, the regenerative medicine of tomorrow, are our vocation. This is the natural evolution from the first transplanted tissues to the face transplant, summarizing in few words a century of advances in a surgery born during World War I and the famous «Association des Gueules Cassées».

The Facing Faces Institute is a great opportunity to create a new rupture in the story of cranio-facial surgery and, without any renouncement of it’s past, to be aware of all the innovative technologies and explore them in a multidisciplinary network.

Our face is a complex entity, in it’s appearance and in what it want to make visible, through the way we look on it. Even more complex is the visage when, destroyed, you have to rebuild it. The Facing Faces Institute, a unique place in Europe which we invite you to visit and discover.
