Director’s Cut: “Restoring Jennifer”

jennifer-still1In 2008, over 300,000 women chose to have breast augmentation surgery.  As a new filmmaker and wife of a plastic surgeon, I wanted to dispel the myth that only Hollywood starlets get boob jobs!  “Restoring Jennifer” is my first documentary short film about a young mother who struggles with the loss of her figure after pregnancy and the act of nursing four children claims her breasts.  Jennifer discusses her desire to return to the more voluptuous breast size she enjoyed before pregnancy.  This film is her story.  Jennifer is open and honest about her reasons why she is considering surgery.  In the concluding minutes of the film we step into Dr. Bashioum’s operating room, see a glimpse of surgery and hear Jennifer’s first words in the recovery room.  She can’t resist taking a quick peek.  Concepts of how images of beauty construct the ideal female form and the role these ideas play in validating self-esteem are explored in this film.
