In recent years, facial recognition techniques can be applicable in varies fields and has significant results. In obtaining facial images, if the face image were covered or damaged, the degree of error and inaccuracy will increase significantly. Therefore, the purpose of this paper is not only for extracting facial features, but also to recover the damaged regions. This paper uses Feature-based methodology to detect facial feature points and build up the face database. And the recovering procedure, the system will be to compare with the faces within the face database to find the applicable face, and reconstruct it.
