“It really has a lot of substance,” she continued. “And it’s inspiring. Because I think it’s understanding why someone wants to get surgery to make a physical change. I said this in one of the trailers, ‘You think it’s all about the outside but if you really all about the inside.’ How someone feels about themselves, where they are emotionally and just, a lot of times patients are trying to leave a part of their life behind.”

“[The patient] turned over a new phase, a new leaf,” Begovic stated. “They’re headed in the direction they want to and there’s just like one physical thing holding them back.
