A new movie that is about to hit theaters will explore a different side of plastic surgery. It may cause viewers to question the future of the industry. “The Skin I Live In” is a movie starring Antonio Banderas.
The actor plays a plastic surgeon who decides to create a fire retardant substitute for skin after his wife passes away due to burn symptoms. The movie has a rather dark tone as the doctor featured is deeply troubled. However, it does also shed light on where medicine may be heading. The movie shows the main character traveling to numerous conferences as he experiments with recent medical technology in his personal lab.
It is a theme that may have seemed far-fetched a decade ago. Today, with successful face transplants and other major medical breakthroughs occurring, it is not so unrealistic.
Whether you love or hate the movie, the commentary about the plastic surgery field is undeniable.
