Incredible moment man disfigured by severe burns has a large single piece of skin from his stomach transplanted onto his face after appearing on reality TV show

A man who lived as a hermit after suffering severe burns as a baby says he is no longer afraid to speak to his family and friends after having a face transplant.

Dilmrod, 20, from Tajikistan, was inundated with offers of help after telling his story on a Russian reality TV show in the south-western city of Krasnodar Krai.

Now, after undergoing a 13-hour procedure that saw a 11 by 12 inch piece of skin transferred from his stomach, he wants to return home and get married.
