Woman has first face transplant - From Dead Persons Face

In the controversial operation, skin, fat and blood vessels were removed from a dead donor before being attached to the patient's lower face.

Doctors stress the woman will not look like her donor, but nor will she look like she did before the attack - instead she will have a "hybrid" face.

It has been technically possible to carry out such a transplant for some years, with teams in the US, the UK and France researching the procedure.
