* In ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolidVThePhantomPain'' this is offered at the start of the game, apparently allowing the player to choose any face they want for their version of Big Boss via CharacterCustomization. Subverted as this turns out to be a TrollingCreator moment and the character doesn't doesn't end up getting the surgery at all. After the final mission the player finds out that [[spoiler:this was actually a DoubleSubversion - the player character is not the real Big Boss but one of his closest lieutenants. The lieutenant received a SurgicalImpersonation makeover before the game started, along with hypnotherapy to make him believe that he was the real deal. This drew attention away from the genuine article, allowing him to escape and work on his own plans]].

* While ''Franchise/{{Tintin}} and Alph-Art'' was incomplete at the time of Creator/{{Herge}}'s death, one of the plot twists he was considering (and had sketched out) was revealing that the main villain, Endaddine Akass, was actually longtime enemy Roberto Rastapopoulos, after extensive plastic surgery to alter his appearance. Downplayed in the eventual [[FanFic/TintinAndAlphArtYvesRodier version by fan artist Yves Rodier]], as Rodier redesigned Akass's appearance to be more consistent with that of Rastapopoulos, meaning that he only needed some minor surgery (along with glasses and a fake beard) to achieve his new look.

* Janet Green on ''AllMyChildren'', a convicted murderer and known psychopath, is given her release from prison in exchange for undergoing experimental plastic surgery. Her portrayer, Kate Collins, left and was replaced by Robin Mattson. However, when Janet returned in 2005, she was Kate Collins again, with no explanation. (Same happened when James [=DePaiva=] left ''{{One Life to Live}}'' but later returned.)

* A failed pilot called ''Fugly'' begins with a radical plastic surgery that turns one of a pair of identical twins that looks like [[HollywoodHomely 5-foot-nothing, 150 pound]] MarissaJaretWinokur with ugly prosthetics into 5'7'' bombshell Nikki Cox. Yeah.

* Jo (Red Striker Borg) from ''SeriesBigBadBeetleborgs'' also had her appearance ([[TheNthDoctor and actor]]) changed by magic. ''Accidentally,'' when a spell backfired. A second spell makes the world see her old face, but it doesn't work on her teammates or the audience.

* In ''Franchise/TheGreenHornet'' Series, a criminal uses this to take the place of a reclusive millionare to avoid capture. Unlike most versions, the look of the person is similar enough to be believed. Also the Green Hornet points out that there ''are'' hairline scars that if a person was observant enough would notice.

*** Subverted in the same game. One minor side quest has you investigating a missing person, and the clues end up leading you to the clinic's basement. Once inside, [[spoiler:you find out the missing person wanted to get a MagicPlasticSurgery, but the doctor botched the operation. To preserve his reputation, he murdered his patient, and you enter just after he finished dismembering the body. If you try to forcibly arrest him, you end up having to kill him, and trying to convince him to give up results in him having a MyGodWhatHaveIDone moment and killing himself by overdosing on [[FantasticDrugs Psycho]]]].

* Subverted in an episode of ''Series/TheAdventuresOfSuperman'', where it appears that a mobster has had surgery to alter his face and fingerprints, but which Superman keeps seeing through because of his old mannerisms. Turns out, the mobster was still in hiding and trying to discredit superman by spreading the plastic surgery story and getting someone else to mimic his mannerisms.

* Parodied in a ''ComicBook/TheSimpsonsComics'' story when Sideshow Bob is released from prison yet again, but has to get plastic surgery after being run over by a truck as soon as he steps outside of prison. Bart and Lisa panic on finding out about this and try digging up dirt on new Springfield residents to discover which one of them might be Bob, but come up empty. Eventually, Bob shows up at the climax... and turns out to look exactly the same as before, and is even amused at the notion of plastic surgery doing anything more than just repairing the injuries he got in the accident.
