Bleach, Nip, Tuck: The White Beauty Myth: The Face

Tuesday, November 3 on 4

Part of the Race: Science’s Last Taboo season, this two part series examines the emerging trend for deracialisation surgery through the stories of six people who want to go to extreme lengths to westernise their bodies and faces. The second programme, The Face , follows three people who are desperate for ‘whiter’ facial features. It also explores how westernisation surgery is thriving across the globe: from double eyelid and ‘face smashing’ surgery in South Korea, to nose jobs in Pakistan.
