Why did the plastic surgery makeover show The Swan have a therapist on staff? Does changing our appearance so drastically change who we are that it challenges our notions of self - and is this a reason not to do it? I take this question one step further by exploring what happens when one person is given not just a new face, but the face of someone else entirely. Drawing on film and literary explorations of the question of identity transfer, as well as the history of face transplant surgery, I ask: what makes us who we really are?
