Whose face is it anyway? @drfelicitym

Surgery to change facial appearance is increasingly common, for both reconstructive and cosmetic reasons. Surgical advances allow us to perform previously impossible operations, including face transplants. What does the future hold? Many patients undergo a series of multiple operations; where should we stop? Meanwhile, increasing numbers of adults and children are turning to cosmetic surgery. What drives this? Should we blame the media and glossy magazines? How do you think about disfigurement?  Might you, unwittingly, push people to accept risks of appearance-changing surgery? Share your views, discuss ethics and explore prejudice with Surgeon Felicity Mehendale.
