Reconstructive plastic surgery reported by media: shock!

On my daily tube commute I often have a flick through the Evening Standard. Over the last year they have run a number of plastic surgery related stories from the Royal Free.

These have included "Boy born without ear gets one built from rib cartilage", "Cancer woman has new breast made from her tummy tissue", and lastly the ". . boy born with a frozen face".

None of the stories report new advances. However, it is good to see the reconstructive side of plastic surgery getting coverage for once.

The ear reconstruction and bilateral facial reanimation surgery was also covered by The One Show on BBC1..
