Face Transplant Case and Ethics

I understand many of this Doctor's objections. Despite the notoriety and questions that have arisen surrounding the face transplant case, the identity of the woman involved should not be made public. And while its important for practioners to share information with other practioners, her picture shouldn't be made public without her permission. It is his quote at the end that should raise more then a few eyebrows. Or all of them really.

"The transplant is normal. She even finds her face better than before -- sweeping away ethical controversies," he said

Is he saying that just because the procedure has been deemed a success no one should question the ethics of it? Hubris is too delicate a word.
