Summary

Skin Decision: Before and After is a better series than it should be — Season 1 is emotionally driven and well-rounded. It’s 100% worth the watch.

Netflix series Skin Decision: Before and After season 1 will be out on the platform on July 13, 2020.


The stigma around plastic surgery and skin treatment has always been overwhelmingly negative, mostly because of the tabloid media that chase down celebrities, demanding to know how their face or body has changed. It’s a stigma that I’ve never truly understood — if you have an insecurity that derails your life daily, and you have the money to fix it, why wouldn’t you?

And I believe Skin Decision: Before and After will change that stigma. Plastic surgeon Dr. Sheila Nazarian and nurse Jamie use the latest, most innovative treatments to give their clients their best selves. But there’s a story behind each client that I think will warm to the viewers and provide an understanding and education of why people want changes.

Both surgeon and nurse give a full-circle view on each client; the discussion before the consultation, the consultation, the story, the expectations, and then the final treatment decision. Skin Decision: Before and After shows two experts that put the client’s needs first — both professionals complement each other, sometimes conceding that surgery is better than skin treatment and vice versa; neither Sheila nor Jamie allow their professional pride to work to the detriment of the best results.

So Skin Decision: Before and After has a human side and taking away how clinical the whole process is, the series does well to justify the decision making. Some of these clients have had traumatic experiences in their lives and only treatment can help them move away from the horror. We often forget that surgery and treatment are widely used after a horrific event not just “because”.

Netflix’s Skin Decision: Before and After is a better series than it should be — Season 1 is emotionally driven and well-rounded. It’s 100% worth the watch.
