Spanish Face Transplant Patient Shows His New Face

Spanish face transplant patient known only as Rafael revealed his new face at a press conference. The 30-year old had a partial face transplant surgery to repair deformation due to benign tumors:

Months of rehabilitation await him, but Rafael can now distinguish between hot and cold and feel pain in his lips.

After the operation, Rafael recognized himself in the mirror and liked what he saw, Gomez Cia said. "Not only did he not see himself as a monster, but rather he also thought he looked younger."
