* Christopher Chance, Franchise/TheDCU's ''HumanTarget'', has made a career of impersonating people with dangerous lives. He's had plastic surgery more times than should be possible in a single issue alone, and much more. He's used plastic surgery to become ''black'' before. He's had his face altered to look like a man for a short time, then returned to his normal face, then altered to resemble the same man ''again'', ''then'' back to his regular face again, with no ill effect. Cosmetic surgery is used as a magic wand. At least some of Chance's transformations are done with latex masks, body suits, makeup and suchlike. [[LatexPerfection The masks are as suspiciously convincing and easily removed]] as those in ''Scooby Doo''.

** Steven Carrington of ''{{Dynasty}}'' is another example of this. He was originally played by Al Corley. He was in an accident and had plastic surgery and was then played by Jack Coleman (Noah Bennett on ''Series/{{Heroes}}'') until the series ended. For the reunion movie, he was again played by Corley, with no explanation.

* Jack Napier ''wanted'' this in Creator/TimBurton's ''Film/{{Batman}}'' after getting a deflected bullet to the face (that split to hit both cheeks) and getting dunked in a vat of unspecific chemicals and/or acid. The concept is [[AvertedTrope averted]], however, in that the best the back-alley surgeon can do is keep him from looking as [[BodyHorror horribly disfigured]] as he should be, and "just" end up as [[SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker the Joker]].

* In the Brazilian SoapOpera ''Brega e chique'' and its Chilean remake ''Rompecorazón'', a bigamist rich man goes FakingTheDead, goes through one of these and returns under a fake identity, to keep an eye on his two families ''and'' on a girlfriend he had on the side. Logically, in each setting two actors play the same character before and after surgery.

* In the original Golden Age ''ComicBook/WonderWoman'' comics, [[TheBaroness Baroness]] Paula von Gunther cements her HeelFaceTurn by rescuing Diana from a burning building and [[RedemptionEqualsAffliction suffering severe facial burns]] in the process. A magical Amazon healing ointment is then used to give her a new face that looks totally different from her former one, symbolising her moral rebirth.

* In the original Golden Age ''ComicBook/WonderWoman'' comics, [[TheBaroness Baroness]] Paula von Gunther cements her HeelFaceTurn by rescuing Diana from deactivating a burning bomb in an already-burning building and [[RedemptionEqualsAffliction suffering severe facial burns]] in the process. A magical Amazon healing ointment is then used to give her a new face that looks totally different from her former one, symbolising her moral rebirth. This is the possible UrExample.

** Come the ''Kelvin'' timeline, it becomes something of a plot point in ''Film/StarTrekIntoDarkness''.

* 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.

* In Miss Guillotine, two major characters have undergone plastic surgery. Julie's is more realistic, limited to minor facial touches and laser eye surgery. Hailey/Michelle's meanwhile, requires major facial reconstruction, liposuction, elongated limbs, extensive skin treatments and dietary changes...
