Daisy: Story of a Face-Lift
Program Number


Series Description

FRONTLINE is investigative journalism that questions, explains and changes our world. Since 1983, FRONTLINE has served as PBS's flagship public affairs series. Hailed upon its television broadcast debut as "the last best hope for broadcast documentaries," FRONTLINE's stature is reaffirmed each week through incisive documentaries covering the scope and complexity of the human experience.

Program Description

How society values youth and beauty, with one woman's decision to have a facelift as the backdrop. Daisy is fifty-five and terrified of growing old. She feels she needs a facelift. From the moment of her decision, FRONTLINE follows her through all the procedures, but the heart of the story is an exploration of values, character, cosmetics, and the business of plastic surgery.
