There's an image making rounds on the social media streets showing the long awaited face transplant that was finally executed on a 35 year old man.

A face transplant has been in talks for over 2 decades now after a plastic surgeon in China announced in 2001 that it can be possible but at that time, technology was so much advanced as it is now so the Doctor had to wait until the right technological inventions were brought to the table.

Unfortunately due life being life, the Chinese Doctor died before he could finally get the materials to execute his idea but thanks to a group of surgeons who made it their mission to complete what the Chinese Doctor wanted to accomplish.

The first ever person to get it is Joe Dimeo, who lost his face to a fire that came out after he lost control of his vehicle and ran into another car with fire coming out in the process.

After the first huma trials for a face transplant were announced, Mr Dimeo was first on the line and luckily, he was found to be a a candidate who qualified for the procedure.

The procedure really took a long time but after a long 11 hours, they doctors finally got it right. This is the beginning of a new dawn, those who've lost their faces due to a fire or acid burn, will finally be able to retain their faces.

What do y'all think about the transplant?? Lemme know in the comments section
