Northwestern prof’s innovation heals facial burns, teams with Army
The first face transplant in Spain shocked the world in 2010, advancing facial reconstruction techniques that hadn’t changed in more than 15 years. Now, Northwestern , University of Texas at Arlington and U.S. Army researchers are giving the field a new face with an invention called the Biomask.
The Biomask, which is currently undergoing testing at the microscopic level, would work by allowing a doctor to essentially build a face out of individual cells. A doctor would take a 3-dimensional mold of a burn victim’s face and determine with a computer which parts of the face need to be thicker or thinner.

More than meets the eye: Northwestern doctor hoping to change stigma of plastic surgery
Plastic surgery might just be the most controversial field in the health care industry. Tabloid pages are plastered with pictures of past vixens who have undergone certain enhancement procedures. Some gossip websites have made it their sole purpose to show botched jobs.
But is this really the light that should be shone onto this profession? Even the most narcissistic person has at least one cosmetic item on his or her wish list, so why condemn those who go for it? Furthermore, should plastic surgery be backed into this one corner? There’s more to it than just looking pretty.
