REAL LIFE - COSMETIC SURGERY
More Kiwi women than ever before are turning to plastic surgery, so New Idea looks at two very different experiences.

We also meet seven-year-old Jacob who was orphaned two years ago after his mum Suzanne went to hospital for gastric bypass surgery. She thought the surgery would give her a fresh start, but things didn't go as planned.
