Make Me BeautifulDownloadable Video - 2015
What happens when a patient becomes the customer and health is a consumer product, where money gives you access to the best available care? This observational documentary series looks inside the world of private medicine in Harley Street, the iconic British institution. Home to the greatest concentration of medical expertise anywhere in the world, Harley Street is an exclusive one-stop shop for everything from cutting-edge cancer treatment to cosmetic surgery. But while the wealthy form a significant part of its custom, Harley Street is also a last resort for desperate people. "Make Me Beautiful" follows liposuction, face lift, and hair transplant patients to understand why they choose to undergo expensive and somewhat risky elective surgery. It includes interviews with doctors and real estate agents about the neighborhood's shift from serious to superficial medicine.
