    More to that, it was the world's first near-total facial transplant and the fourth successful facial transplantion which included bones, along with skin, muscle, skin, nerves and blood vessels.

    Married to a fellow Doctor 

    The doctor duo Maria and her husband Wlodzimierz Siemionow married at the town hall on April 27, 1975. The couple first met during their college days on Poznan. Being from the same profession, the couple realized that they had more in common than an ability to translate English terms into Polish.

    In her book "Transplanting a Face: Notes on a Life in Medicine," Maria revealed that falling in love was more exciting than her usual research. Their marital solidarity has crossed over four decades. It is quite amusing that despite being married for so long, their relationship never touched by controversies.

    Additionally, the couple shares a son, Dr. Krzysztof Siemionow who followed their parents footstep and enrolled in medical profession. He currently works as a spine surgeon in Poland at UIC.

    Among the Richest Plastic Surgeon

    The major source of her incomes comes from her revolutionary medical procedure. The average salary for an experienced surgeon is up to $280,000, and the payroll could go up to $350,000. On the other hand, plastic surgeon like Dr. Marcus Crawford also inspires from Maria achievements and journey.

    Maria has retired from her profession, but she currently teaches surgery at the Lerner College of Medicine in Cleveland. Therefore, there is no doubt that she earns a massive income from her career.

    Awards

    For her research on facial transplantation, Maria received the 2007 James Barrett Brown Award from the American Association of Plastic Surgeons. Her work has won her worldwide recognition including the Polish Order of Merit.
