This four-part documentary series - featuring unflinching operation room footage of medical procedures - dissects the industry to show both what's attractive about it, and also its uglier side.
'Cosmetic Surgery' Part 1 - 'The Pursuit of Perfection' - follows three patients before, during and after their very first plastic surgeries:
A young mother undergoing a breast augmentation;
A computer consultant who hopes liposuction will rejuvenate his love life;
And a middle-aged teacher who is optimistic a full face-lift will help her career.
How will the procedures affect each person, both physically and emotionally?
This show also explores the best way to pick a surgeon and shows you the dangerous ramifications of picking one in haste.
If you've ever wondered about plastic surgery yourself, this realistic, honest programme may well influence your decision.
