Grow or shave off a beard
add or remove Tattoos
What I hope you wll not be able to change is your characters name.
True and true (not being able to change your characters name).
But I think there are a lot of cool possiblities here.
First, the effect can be permanent, or hard to have done, or just a temporary effect (from a spell or curse from an NPC or a regional effect, etc).
Second, it does allow for shapechange in addition to changing how your character looks keeping its race.
Our skeleton/morphing technology, like I said, no matter how attacked on some boards (the unibody debate) not only allows us to make orders of magnitude more sets of clothing/armor/etc., support changing your outfit depending on situation or sphere, allow us to give players not only an unprecedented level of character customization at character create, also apply this tech to NPCs so they look very different, both body and face-wise, but we can do a lot of this post-character create and I think there are a TON of ideas to explore here -- very exciting stuff.
