A team of 30 Spanish doctors say they have successfully performed the world's first full face transplant.
A man injured in a shooting accident received the entire facial skin and muscles - including cheekbones, nose, lips and teeth - of a donor.
The man is recovering well after the 22-hour operation, said a spokesperson from Vall d'Hebron University Hospital.
Another 10 face transplants have been carried out around the world, but this is believed to be the most complex.
