  • An amazingly premonition of our present!!!

    I saw this episode as a child and it has stuck with me for over 20 years because it's ending was so shocking. I never knew the title but I researched it on the internet and found it. I wish I could send it to all the Dr. 90210's out there as well as the patients who believe that their self-esteem must be wrapped up in their beauty because of how highly society values it. Sadly, it is true. And even more sadly, many who have stridently been anti-plastic surgery find themselves as hypocrites when they give in to youth obsessed culture and discover they really are happier when prettier. Plastic surgery was once reserved for those who were disfigured, but today those who have normal faces and bodies often feel that they are not normal, as a manufactured form is becoming the standard of normalcy. This episode nailed it on the head.
