This week we focus on four patients. Mark from Liverpool had surgery to remove his man boobs, which resulted in his right nipple falling off. He had a skin graft to rebuild it but he ended up with something that looks like 'a piece of pepperoni'. He wants to be normal again.

Mother of three Amal had permanent filler injected into her face in a bid to turn back the clock – but it has ended up turning her face into a chemical war zone. She wants it removed before it's too late and her face is damaged beyond repair.

Travel agent Katrina from London had a gastric band fitted on the NHS. The resulting fifteen stone weight loss left her with four and half kilos of excess skin, which no amount of exercise will fix. Only surgery can help.

Former soldier Machel from Cardiff had four dental implants fitted at a cut-price dentist and got more than he bargained for. He ended up with an infection that is ravaging his jawbone. His teeth change colour when he eats and threaten to fall out when he smiles. Machel wants a gleaming white set of teeth that will stay firmly in place.

Can the surgeons correct the catastrophes and give the victims the boobs, faces, teeth and tums that they have always wanted?

    The study, which shows British people are the fattest in Europe, predicts that by 2025 obesity will cost the health service £20billion, equivalent to about 12 per cent of the budget.A quarter of British children are now classed as obese and by 2025 it is predicted nearly half of boys under 16 and 38 per cent of girls will be obese.

    Rubbish on Safari on my macbook. Just freezes on the adverts all the time. Then when you re-fresh, rather than it going back to where you were you have to start from the start again and watch the adverts all again, where it then freezes! I give up. C5 on demand has always been rubbish, thought it would have changed since I last tried it over a year ago but there we are ... bbc iplayer it is then.

    where are the subtitles! ! your site is very unclear re stating whether a program is subtilted or not ?This is very unfair on deaf people. this program appears to be subtitled when shown but not so on demand player? Will have to stick with i player. zoe

    This is bad reporting - this program repeats itself far too much!! This program could of been condensed in to a 20 min show - why do TV shows do this? Re problems with the test card - not starting - just stick with it - does eventually load .. lots of adverts, lots of repeating it self ..

  • Sam

    Yes I agree the surgeons that messed those people up in first place need locking up!! How can such a person do that to someone? Not good at all! Surely they knew they weren't skilled to do it but they just greedy to take their money.

    Shows part 1 of 4 after every break. A few pictures of the testcard. You also use for your post production. Not very professional...

    always seem to get problems with this player - programs freeze on the adverts, play a little then just stop, sometimes returning to the adverts, sometimes just freezing altogether - it's hopeless
