Younger, Thinner, Smoother puts the current plastic surgery craze into a social and historical context. When 80 year olds look like 60 year olds and 60 year olds look like 40 year olds, what will it mean to be old and what will old look like? Sher's personal journey leads to candid interviews with men and women who have been "nipped and tucked" (and their doctors) to decide should she or shouldn't she?

Quotes:
"Veteran documentary filmmaker Elizabeth Sher deftly skewers American's obsession with cosmetic surgery....Her ability to poke fun at society at her own expense is, well, eye-opening. Highly recommended and sure to be popular." A. Conti, Video Librarian (reviewing Sher’s documentary Younger, Thinner, Smoother)
