BioShock Fun Fact:

Dr. Steinman’s character was at least partially inspired by the life of Sir Harold Gillies, a man considered to be the father of plastic surgery who performed facial reconstructions on veterans during both World Wars. Gillies pioneered the “walking-stalk skin graft” technique of plastic surgery, a technique that Steinman was said to have used in the article that mentions his disappearance. Interestingly, two of Gillies’ patients were also used as the basis for the faces of the Toasty and Waders Splicer models.

Sir Gillies on the Left.

On the Right is an example of his work. A man named Walter Yeo who had is eyelids burned off. Before and after the new technique by Gillies is performed. He is said to be the first person to benefit from Plastic Surgery. You can definitely see the resemblance to many splicers in BioShock.
