While the final picture might be graphic (AFTER THE JUMP), it's totally astounding!

The victim was a 33 year-old man who had his face completely torn off in an accident that also crushed his jaw. He had the total face transplant only a few weeks after narrowly surviving — and just six days after the surgery, he was shown making a thumbs-up gesture from his hospital bed!

According to the doctors, it was the world's first life-saving face transplant carried out so soon after the damage. Other successful transplants took months or years to prepare, so this was pretty intense timeline-wise!

We're so glad that someone decided to donate the extra face they had lying around!

JK! LOLz! We TRULY are proud of whoever signed up to be a donor, even if they're not longer with us. It's a heroic thing to do, regardless if they've passed on!
