Las Vegas Dr. Frank Stile saw the need for something that was missing in the world of Mixed Martial Arts, a good plastic surgeon. After witnessing many MMA fighters getting stitched up improperly, Stile thought implementing a common plastic surgery procedure on fighters could help young men whose faces were beaten so bad they bled after the tiniest impact. The procedure has become a success and in some cases fighter's skin was as tough as new. Stile's work has caused some to compare plastic surgery to steroids in that it gives fighters an edge in the ring. We talk with Dr. Frank Stile about his procedure and working on the faces of young fighters. Rebroadcast.
