What is Plastic Disasters about?
Tummy tuck. Nose job. Lipo. Millions of people routinely undergo these cosmetic surgeries each year, hoping the results will help them look and feel better. But when something goes wrong, the consequences can be devastating. This HBO Documentary Films presentation exposes the dark side of plastic surgery with a shocking look at three case studies of procedures that went horrifically wrong. Featuring operating-room footage, home videos, personal 'before' and 'after' photos and interviews with patients' doctors and lawyers, the film reveals the physical and emotional havoc wrought by subsequent corrective surgeries, the toll it takes on family and friends, and the knowledge that patients' ordeals could have been avoided had they not had plastic surgery in the first place.
