You may remember Juju Chang brought us an interview last week with reality TV star Heidi Montag, who at 23 underwent a staggering 10 plastic surgery procedures in what most critics called a desperate cry for help. Now we meet "Martine," who has spent the past three decades trying to perfect her face, starting with a nosejob in hers 20s, a facelift in her 40s and now, a second facelift procedure. She is not alone. As correspondent Ryan Owens and producer Danielle Atkin report, the plastic surgery "re-do" is on the rise. Martine's doctor estimates more than half of his cases involve repeat work — with so many unhappy patients that he wrote the book "The Facelift Letdown." And it's not just the face — many women, like L.B., pictured above, are also having their breasts redone as those hands of time tick by. We'll have a closer look the revisionist plastic surgery trend, tonight.
