French doctors perform partial face transplant on 27-year-old man

French doctors have performed a partial face transplant on a 27-year-old man in the third such operation, a newspaper reported Tuesday.

The patient suffered from a condition known as neurofibromatosis that disfigured his face, Le Parisien newspaper reported. The transplant gave him a new nose, mouth and chin, and it also replaced part of his cheeks.

The operation was carried out at Henri-Mondor hospital in the Paris suburb of Creteil by Dr. Laurent Lantieri, the report said. The Paris hospital system said it could not immediately confirm the report, though it said it planned to release details later in the day, reports AP.

The new report came about a year after a Frenchwoman received the world's first partial face transplant after being disfigured by her dog. On the one-year anniversary of the procedure in November, doctors said that Isabelle Dinoire's operation was a success and that she is gaining more sensitivity and facial mobility.

Since that surgery, a Chinese farmer also received a partial face transplant after he was badly disfigured in a bear attack.
