Will a new face give you a new life?
NOVA has the answer.
Most of us take a normal appearance for granted. For those less fortunate, advances in surgical techniques can now give patients a chance for a better life. NOVA presents a stunning vision of the past, present and future of plastic surgery. Join top medical specialists to see the awe-inspiring things that can be done to create "a normal face". Chronologic photography shows how the miracles of modern medical techniques can take grotesque disfigurement and transform it by radical procedures never before filmed. From pioneering battlefield surgeons of the early 1900's, to the methods of today, NOVA explores the medical drama of surgery and the human drama of recovery.
