As usual in this series, the surgery footage is most impressive—reconstruction of a breast, a jaw and a skull are tonight's focus. There has been a creeping tendency toward melodrama, though, and there are too many shots of mothers crying and relatives kissing and comments such as, "Only time will tell if the old and new pieces will mend and marry as one."
