Doctors in the US say most of the face transplant patients they have been following for about five years are continuing to show improvement in quality of life.

Their new faces are functioning — in terms of movement control — at about 60% of what a normal face would, and the patients are seeing “significant improvement” in the ability to feel hot, cold and pressure on the skin.
