Is There Anything on the Face That Can NOT Be Fixed Even with Plastic Surgery ?

Considering the fact that so many facial flaws can be fixed, I was curious as to what facial flaws can NOT be fixed. Thanks in advance.

Limitations of Facial Plastic Surgery

The media and many unscrupulous ads have unfortunately given rise to the myth of the limitless magical powers of Cosmetic Surgery. In fact, an ethical Plastic surgeon would readily confess that we ARE quite limited in what we can do. Nowhere does the adage "You can't make a silk purse out of a sow's ear" apply more than in Plastic Surgery. What we can do depends on what YOU bring to the OR table.
