The face transplant from the chimp attack is a success so far.
Victim Charla Nash, who was attacked by a 200-pound pet chimp two years ago in Connecticut, has a new face now. She can even make expressions and show emotions on her face, according to her family members, reported Healthland.
Her new look (seen below), released on Thursday for the first time by Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston, shows a remarkably 'normal' looking face.
Previously, her hands, nose, and eyelids were ripped off by the chimp and she could not see and smell.
Nash also received a pair of transplant hands. However, complications developed and the new hands were removed.
"Losing the new hands is just a bump in the road of my recovery. I believe that one day I'll have two hands to help me live as a blind person with confidence," said Nash in a statement released by the Brigham and Women's Hospital.
"I have been blessed to be in the care of many incredible doctors, nurses, and caregivers. These professionals first saved my life, then healed my wounds and strengthened me to face an uncertain future," she said.
