Saving faces of the severely disfigured

Iain Hutchison is a maxillofacial surgeon in the United Kingdom who specializes in treating people whose faces have been severely disfigured. His foundation, Saving Faces, is dedicated to the worldwide reduction of facial injuries and diseases. In this TED Talk, he discusses his work and why a disfigured face can be shocking.

From about 12:10 to 13:20 the video contains images of badly injured faces, so, if you are squeamish, you might momentarily hide your screen.
