'Fastest' face transplant completed in Poland

A Polish man who received a face transplant three weeks after being disfigured in a workplace accident has seen his new face in a mirror for the first time.

It is thought that the procedure marked the fastest time-frame between needing a transplant and getting an operation.

The operation was also Poland's first face transplant.
