To watch my uncut and uncensored videos- visit my Patreon Page:

Before it became predominantly associated with celebrity nips and tucks, plastic surgery was about saving lives. The medical procedure would change a personโ€™s life โ€“ not by giving them a little extra confidence, but by making it possible to walk outside again.

On some level, plastic surgery has been around for thousands of years โ€“ but the idea really got started during World War 1, when doctors performed the first skin graft. With the world at war, medical science made some incredible leaps that would change plastic surgery forever.

    Amazing the skills to help the victims over 100 years ago.

  3. H.I.T.B nn on November 23, 2021 at 6:44 pm

    I wonder how these men survived such injuries in the first place

  4. Lori J on November 23, 2021 at 6:44 pm

    Amazing reconstruction surgeries of those times.

    I am a little confused. The video is about ww1 stuff but you included a Pic from 1944. Still interesting though!

  7. mmh on November 23, 2021 at 6:46 pm

    just imagine the pain they had to go trough….

    My paternal grandfather came home a year after WWI ended being hospitalized in France after being gassed. His injuries were internal but lifelong too.

    Ngl- I was really wary of watching this upload ๐Ÿ™ˆ, and it is very thought provoking- but impressive results in many cases, especially remembering this was over a hundred years ago!

    Here we see the product of the criminal element in human nature – to kill/destroy other men – Man is as savage as Apes, and it is the innocent that are the victims of compulsory acts.

  11. Smita Tewari on November 23, 2021 at 6:53 pm

    Yaar this video is so painful

  12. Potato blossom on November 23, 2021 at 6:57 pm

    life for us :((

  13. Toria Kaley on November 23, 2021 at 6:57 pm

    The pain these poor people went through before and during/after surgery must have been intense. ๐Ÿ˜Ÿ

    Fuck me, the woman who had no scalp really looked awful. That’s a lot of exposed flesh.

    Salute & Thank You So Much to those Surgeons , Nurses & Mask Makers for given back faces to those who have lost them during those terrible wars! May True Gods & Goddesses Blessed the Innocents & Kind Hearted to a Better World or Realm! ๐ŸŒโ™ฅ๏ธ๐ŸŒท๐Ÿ•Š๐Ÿ•ฏ

    This is so interesting

  20. runny babbit on November 23, 2021 at 7:06 pm

    Keloid was the 1st thing I thought. Especially after seeing the small lesions on the chest.
    ( See 9:20 ) That’s a more common appearance.

  21. september quest on November 23, 2021 at 7:07 pm

    Incredible post,Luth…your channel is an elite format correlating to the vast field of forensics incredibly educational!!!!!!

  22. stephanie elliott on November 23, 2021 at 7:08 pm

    Wow amazing ๐Ÿ˜ฎ
    I didn’t know plastic surgery went back this far?
    The 1st nose job was incredible for it’s time and all of these actually. Dr’s did great jobs ๐Ÿ‘
    Especially helping out wounded soldiers, giving them somewhat of themselves back after fighting in those horrific battles.
    I know mentally and emotionally they were most likely traumatized for life, but giving their looks a chance most definitely would’ve helped them out so much.

    Thankfully they were able to get as much opioids and morphine as they needed back then, cause these operations back then were very painful and dangerous due to the lack of proper antibiotics.

  23. wendy schutze on November 23, 2021 at 7:08 pm

    The โ€œ Ear Piercing Infection โ€œ is actually Keloid Scarring. It is most common in dark skinned races and is always a risk. If you remove the Keloids there is a great possibility that the resulting scarring will also be Keloid..

  24. Eunice Stone on November 23, 2021 at 7:10 pm

    God bless them all.

  25. Kishanna Conan Doyle on November 23, 2021 at 7:10 pm

    Blessed doctors who gave these people a new life!

  26. Traci71769 on November 23, 2021 at 7:11 pm

    God bless all these people and I thank them for the service

    music source?

  28. J H on November 23, 2021 at 7:12 pm

    4:49 did not grow a mustage, it was part of the mask it self, to conceal the mask better. 9:06, if it was an infection, how do you explain the tumors on her neck as well?

  29. Steff@N on November 23, 2021 at 7:12 pm

    FUCK WAR! play video games in order to experience war…worst case scenarios: Muscle cramps from staying too much in front of the pc!!!

  30. Debbie Pretty on November 23, 2021 at 7:14 pm

    We are all.the one human race but continue to go to war with each other and these pictures are some of the results

  31. Mizztress Bella on November 23, 2021 at 7:15 pm

    I am amazed at how brilliantly advanced this Dr. was, whose cases were mainly featured in this video. The fact that he somehow made miracles happen long before medical & technological advancements, blows my mind. I had NO IDEA that they were even capable of ANY type’s of "reconstructive surgeries" let alone such well-done reconstructive surgeries & skin graphs that long ago. These surgeons paved the way for SO, SO MANY OTHER TYPES OF RECONSTRUCTIVE & COSMETIC SURGERIES.
    Also the skill level & natural talent of the "mask maker" in the beginning of the video is unreal. I had no idea they even used such pieces as "medical / cosmetic mask’s" back in the day. That was literally early facial prosthetic’s and took so much artistic talent to create. I saw another online video & article about this same female "mask maker" from WW1 that now I HAVE TO WATCH!! Thank you so much for your odd little channel @Luth Luther lol, I think you would LOVE my main channel since you like all things that are creepy & dark!! *( I will find a way to email or DM you & give you my main channel name & custom URL because I DO NOT COME ONTO ANOTHER PERSON’S CHANNEL TO "ADVERTISE" MY OWN CHANNEL!! It’s highly disrespectful to do that on YouTube, or any other platform. )*
    I work in Forensic / Criminal Psychology and on my other channel which is my main channel, I discuss a lot of the closed cases I worked on and the "patient’s" or "client’s" that I dealt with. I have sat in a room alone for very long period’s of time with many different serial murderer’s, rapist’s, spree killer’s, school shooter’s and more than enough people admitting to multiple crimes that they DID NOT commit!! I also own my own consulting business for Forensic Specialist’s in EVERY AREA OF FORENSIC’S THAT YOU CAN THINK OF, OR THAT IS EXIST’S!!
    *I saw the video you did on UCI’S, or Underwater Criminal Investigator’s and I thought it was very, very good, AN EXCELLENT VIDEO ACTUALLY.* I have quite a few UCI’s that I work with regularly as I live in the states, in Florida. Being that it is a "peninsula state" which is a state surrounded on all 3 sides by water, we have A LOT of UCI’s working here!! That is a job that there is not enough money in the world that you could pay me to do!!

    Im taking a shit rn

  33. Felton Gailey on November 23, 2021 at 7:15 pm

    The lady with the lip injury, had such loving, compassionate eyes.

  34. Loving Mayberry on November 23, 2021 at 7:16 pm

    Having masks made for a deformed face is NOT an operation, nor is it plastic surgery. You have taken photos that are known to be of soldiers who were fitted for MASKS by Wood and/or Ladd and labeled them as operations, not true.
    The photo of the child is of a cleft LIP, not palette.
    The woman with the ear growths…it is called Keloid scarring and it is NOT caused by infection.
    The photos of the jaw reconstruction are of different men, NOT the same man. Same with the facial reconstruction photos, NOT all the same man.
    So much false information in this video, you should be ashamed!
    Be honest, or don’t upload!

  35. Kim Cook on November 23, 2021 at 7:19 pm

    Oh look it’s Robin in real life

  36. Bonnita Claus on November 23, 2021 at 7:19 pm

    Cancer Past is still around to day as Black Salve. It works by eating everything including the cancer in the skin and beyond. It has scarred people am I still starting people who think that it is a solution because he saw it on YouTube.

  37. september quest on November 23, 2021 at 7:20 pm

    These surgeons are the real medical pioneers of todays modern medicine…this is an educational and yet spectacular display of the horrors of war and other calamities…great job,LuLu.

    wow a bunch of them actually look amazing

  39. โ™› The Holy Realm Of Prussia โ™› on November 23, 2021 at 7:21 pm

    Oh my god, in my opinion these look scarier than faces after WW2. These brave soldiers went threw harsh times.

  40. william murray on November 23, 2021 at 7:23 pm

    Lest we never forget. These photos should be required viewing of past sacrifice and horrors of war.

  41. jessie mayfield on November 23, 2021 at 7:24 pm

    4:16 I donโ€™t even understand how this guy stayed alive, it doesnโ€™t look like he can chew or even breath! What medical miracle kept him alive?

  42. Realistic WW1 Gaming - The Great War on November 23, 2021 at 7:24 pm

    Thank you to these doctors , surgeons , plastic surgeons and mask builders ! These were ore are heroes ! ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป

    How is your eye skin ripped off? Hmm. He looks like he is a teenager as well not a man.

  44. Wild.girl. on November 23, 2021 at 7:27 pm

    You can repair body wounds, but you can hardly repair psychical wounds… I feel sorry for them.

  45. Chicken Little on November 23, 2021 at 7:27 pm

    India has been doing "modern" plastic surgery since the bc era the skin flap rhinoplasty procedure started centuries ago in India the first world war was just the time that western doctors took the skin grafting and flap procedure from India and expanded on it this isn’t something that we created in WW1 lol not even close

  46. Lori J on November 23, 2021 at 7:27 pm

    Sorry but I don’t have all day Move quicker.

  49. Patrick Porter on November 23, 2021 at 7:37 pm

    Wearing a mask isn’t plastic surgery

  50. Funny Lillies on November 23, 2021 at 7:38 pm

    Amazing procedures being done back then with so little to go with. I am very happy plastic surgery is much more advanced today and thankful to the Drs. who preform them. I mean life saving procedures not implants or whatnot yes they’re good but not life saving.
