Doctors in Spain say they have carried out the world's first full face transplant on a man who severely damaged his face in an accident.
Animation from Vall d'Hebron Hospital in Barcelona depicts what doctors say is the world's first full-face transplant.
The Cleveland Clinic will announce Wednesday the successful completion of a near-total face transplant surgery, a clinic spokeswoman told CNN on Tuesday.
When French patient Isabelle Dinoire received a partial face transplant, she became the first person in the world to undergo such a groundbreaking procedure.
Talking publicly a year after having the world's first partial face transplant, Isabelle Dinoire declared: "It may be someone else's face, but when I look in the mirror, I see me."
The woman who received the world's first partial face transplant thanked her doctors as she stepped before the media for the first time since the groundbreaking surgery.
