The entire concept of Plastic Surgery has been highly debatable for a long time. Some people enjoy it, and there are cases where people have gotten addicted to plastic surgeries. But the society still frowns upon it.
In fact, in many of the movies and the series, plastic surgery has even been shown as a joke. However, the new Netflix show, titled Skin Decision: Before & After, is showing the real truth behind Plastic Surgeries.

I remember being a medical student rotating at County USC, watching the chief resident, Dr. Lisa Jewell, operating with @uscplasticsurgery on an 8 hour microsurgery case, thinking, hoping and DREAMING… I want to do that some day. After 12 years from that moment, I did it. A plastic surgeon. And now this… Netflix. Bringing all of those work hours, sacrifices, knowledge, and (I hope) inspiration to the world… does it get any better than this? Seriously… tears. of. joy.
“Skin Decision: Before & After” follows a similar pattern of other series like “What Not To Wear.” The series starts with two people who want to change their appearance via plastic surgery. Then we get into their story regarding why they want to improve their presentations, their insecurities, and much more.
Then, the participants meet the two experts, one in a Plastic Surgeon, Sheila Nazarian, and the other one is a nurse and a skin-care expert, Jamie Sherill. Jamie is known for her work with celebrities like the Kardashians.
During the episodes, the subjects and the experts talk about their expectations from the plastic surgery. And by the end of it, they conclude as to who is the better candidate for surgery, which is then performed by the experts as required.
Plastic Surgery Needs Goes Beyond Cosmetic Insecurities To Emotional, Tragic Events
As opposed to the common notion that Plastic surgery is to make people look better and not accept their natural bodies, it goes much beyond that. Throughout the series, “Skin Decisions: Before & After” shows that plastic surgery is more than just a cosmetic tool.
Many of the subjects that come on the series had had a traumatic experience in their real-life, which has made them change their appearance. Many of the subjects had gone through scarring and disfigurement, and some were gender-affirming as well.
The series shows that plastic surgeries can also be a person’s way of healing.
