    Full Face Transplant Man Reveals New Look on TV

    Full face transplant man reveals his new look on TV

    The Spanish man who underwent the world's first full face transplant has revealed his new look before TV cameras.

    The 31-year-old thanked his donor's family and the medics that gave him a new face in March at Vall d'Hebron University Hospital, Barcelona.

    All things considered I think he looks pretty good.

    I can't wait to see how he looks in a few months.

    He's obviously very swollen right now.

    This is truly an amazing feat by the surgeons. Hopefully they continue to develop and perfect the procedure. With the huge number of muscles that control such intricate actions in the face I'd imagine if they can transplant a face they can transplant anything.

    Yeah ... he looks much better than I would have thought ... and as his body gets used to it, I think it will be shockingly "normal" looking.

    Procedures like this evolve quickly to ... before you know it, "Face/Off" won't be a science fiction movie anymore.
