Race: Science's Last Taboo pt. 2: "Bleach, Nip, Tuck: The White Beauty Myth ep1"

The Body follows the emotional journeys of ethnic minorities desperate to change their bodies, as well as showing incredible surgery including pioneering limb lengthening procedures.

Michael Jackson's radical facial transformation was shrouded in secrecy and became a contentious subject for discussion.
Part of the Race: Science's Last Taboo season, these programmes examine the emerging trend for deracialisation surgery through the stories of six people who want to westernise their bodies and faces. The film also interviews the surgeons willing to make their dreams come true.
Whether it's a more Caucasian nose, longer legs, wider eyes, or even less body hair, plastic surgery and science are making anything possible. The programme asks whether it is right to want to erase your inherited ethnic features to fit in to a predominantly white society.
