The Men Who Make Faces

About the Show

About the Show

Making faces looks at the work of the Maxillofacial Prosthetic Department at the Queen ElizabethHospital in Birmingham. We follow the work of the team as they help patients who require a facial prosthetic due to illness, accident or birth defect. We follow the story of Anna, who had her nose removed due to a cancerous tumour and is now having aprosthetic nose fitted. We meet Frank, who is a young burns victim receiving treatment by the hospital team to reduce the scarring after his accident. The prosthetic team discuss their work and the skills they use as they make a skull plate for a young victim of a fight, and as they renew a prosthetic ear for patient Ron.
