    And that`s saying something when most of today`s plastic surgery started with something normal in the first place.

    Works for getting your picture taken at least, and I imagine walking around in a crowd would be ok. I think it would less effective in face to face conversations, only cause some(if not most) people would bring it up.

    I was raised that staring at or intentionally avoiding looking at deformities or handicaps was rude let alone actually mentioning it or asking about it. I say all this because I find your story hard to believe. Canadians doing something perceived as rude by someone somewhere in the world? PREPOSTEROUS!

    Well surgery today uses skin grafts and what not. What they stitched onto him is obviously pure plastic

    The photo is grainy and black&white, which means that thing could have looked horrible in reality.

    cobrakiller: They`re actually quite realistic. They were custom-made for the person`s face.

    While still in its early stages during the Great War, it was still a great help to those in need of it--especially those recovering from such injuries.
