First Black Man To Receive A Face Transplant After Waiting For 6 Years (Pics)

A California man has become the first African American to receive a face transplant after waiting six years to find skin that matched his own.

Robert Chelsea told Time that he turned down the first face that doctors found for him in 2018 because the donor was fairer than him and he didn’t want to become a ‘totally different looking person.’

At long last, Chelsea got a new face in July in 2019.

In August, 2013, Chelsea was waiting for his overheated car to cool down on the side of a Los Angeles freeway in when a drunk driver swerved into the left-hand shoulder where Chelsea was sitting in his vehicle.

Chelsea’s car was instantly engulfed in flames.

About half of his body was covered in third-degree burn.
