Cosmetic Surgery: Younger, Thinner, Smoother (cc)

"Highly Recommended! Veteran documentary filmmaker Elizabeth Sher deftly skewers American's obsession with cosmetic surgery. Her ability to poke fun at society at her own expense is, well, eye-opening. Highly recommended and sure to be popular." -Video Librarian

According to the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons, there are over eight million surgical and non-surgical cosmetic procedures performed yearly in the United States alone. As more and more people feel motivated, entitled and even required to disguise their age, those who age naturally are becoming the exception rather than the norm. Producer Elizabeth Sher's search for answers in this program leads viewers through a history of the Baby Boomers and the parallel growth of cosmetic surgery. She interviews candid men and women who have been "nipped and tucked" as well as their doctors to find out positives, negatives and whys. At times, she finds herself checking the mirror and examining her own wrinkles and vanity. And the underlying questions remains: Can the promise of a younger look "fix" society's prejudice against old age? Produced by Elizabeth Sher. 03/08DE Closed-Captioned CA 52 min.
