* In both ''Creator/DanielKeysMoran'''s ''Literature/TheLongRun'' and ''Literature/AIWarBigBoost'', Trent undergoes biosculpt to infiltrate a base which has something he is going to steal. The story explicitly notes the requirement to change his height and voice along with all of the other stuff. But Trent is almost caught when a computer notices that his [[Main/RapidFireTyping typing]] is different:
** “Indeed, the improvement is quite remarkable. You have improved from 55 words per minute to 140 at peak typing speed. You now strike the space bar with your right thumb rather than your left. Your typing patterns have also altered radically; your favored keyboard layout has altered from the traditional Dvorak to an enhanced 240-key Unicode board. You have acquired the distinctive habit of tapping the EOL key while you are thinking. When you configured this workstation you immediately turned off the end-of-line warning beep, indicating an adjustment to this habit. You make data entry errors that you did not make during your last tour of duty, and have ceased making the great majority of those errors which you were then prone to.”

** Shortly before his death, [[TheFlash Barry Allen]] was in a fight and had his face beaten to hamburger only to have his face reconstructed to a completely different appearance (by gorilla surgeons, no less!).[[note]]See DramaticUnmask for ''why'' Barry had this done.[[/note]] What's more, by the time he met his fate in ComicBook/CrisisOnInfiniteEarths, the surgeons of the 30th century had given him ''back'' his original face.

* There's a minor character in ''[[TheWitcher Witcher Saga]]'' who offers us an interesting take on this trope: she was disfigured really badly, so after deciding there's nothing they can do with it, the healers just hid it under an exceptionally strong illusion.
* During the ''{{Hand of Thrawn}}'' duology, while Lando Calrissian and Han Solo are freaking out about the possible [[BackFromTheDead return]] of [[IKnowYouKnowIKnow Grand]] [[ManipulativeBastard Admiral]] [[MagnificentBastard Thrawn]], the possibility of the Grand Admiral being [[DeadPersonImpersonation an impostor]] comes up, but Lando is quick to point out that facial surgery would leave marks that he would have seen when he met the man. Plus, no way could anyone have faked that aura of omniscience. [[spoiler: It ''is'' an impostor, a ConMan subverting WeWillNotUseStageMakeupInTheFuture.]]

He was played by Rutger's pal Patrick Bergin. In the commentary, the producers complained about having to go "back to the plastic surgery well" because of the original actor's unavailability.
