Can facial plastic surgeons correctly estimate age from a photograph?
The lack of scientific tools to translate perceptions - such as more beautiful or rejuvenated - into numbers that can be analyzed is a challenge in the field of facial plastic surgery and it can get in the way of producing high-quality scientific publications, say experts.

Seeing Phoenix
It seems like people have been looking at our son Phoenix — without seeing him, without talking to him — since before he was born.

He wasn’t sure how it could be treated and recommended terminating my pregnancy. My husband Mike and I chose not to. Phoenix was born on June 29, 2009, with a lesion at the base of his spine. His spinal cord and nerves were exposed, so his first surgery was a skin graft to cover the lesi...
