  • The First TV Makeover was discussed on Merv Griffin Show in 1970 (and the doctor was ostracized)

    10
    Dr. Kurt Wagner's first appearance on Merv Griffin show was on Sept. 29, 1970 to promote "The Youth Game" book and the host brought him back a month later (in an episode with Victor Borge and Totie Fields) Oct 28, 1970. Dr. Wagner's wife Kathy appears in this episode. Teachers should show this episode to students and then let students read Dr. Wagner's description of what happened when the local medical association of plastic surgeons heard about his appearance -- "self-aggrandizement" ... Often an innovator is punished for pushing the boundaries of a profession. Dr. Wagner's appearance on a national talk show was (positively) disruptive. Young people can use this incident to learn that anyone can (with enough expertise) find some area of a profession that needs reform or change. Dr. Wagner provides a mentor's guidance to future doctors: you can use the media to shake cobwebs from ossified viewpoints. His appearances helped to show that plastic surgery has a place in every community, not just Hollywood "appearance improvement" procedures.moreless
