  • Format

The touching series will follow Finnish men and women who feel that they are seriously dissatisfied with their body and they have the appearance of an area of concern, which can possibly be corrected by a plastic surgery. The problem may be caused by an accident, illness, pregnancy or childbirth. It can be congenital, a scar, or caused by a previous failed cosmetic surgery.

The protagonists have not had a chance to get help for their problem in the past, because of shame or lack of money. They have been alone with their problem in shame. Now they have taken the brave step towards a better life.

A team of plastic surgery experts meet people who are suffering. Hearing their concerns and considering the repercussions our medical experts consider each case, assessing how they can best help. Some individuals will receive life changing surgery, and whilst others cannot be physically helped, they can get the support and closure that they so desperately need. This warm, uplifting and moving tv-series explores the stories of individuals whose physical and mental scars run deep, and helps them to heal.
