The Truth About… is a science documentary series which has been running on the BBC for over five years. Now it’s back to tackle another pressing issue: Cosmetic surgery. 

Since the 1980s, cosmetic surgeries have been on the rise, with more women and men looking to enhance or alter their physical attributes. This past decade has seen surgery become commonplace, with 28,000 cosmetic procedures taking place in the UK in 2018 alone.

From boob jobs to lip fillers, it’s not unusual for the public to undergo these procedures in this day and age. But how safe are they really?

Mehreen Baig is on the scene to investigate cosmetic treatments in a new two-part series of The Truth About… which launched on Tuesday, August 25th. So, with Mehreen back on the BBC, we thought it best to find out more about her. Get to know The Truth About… presenter here!
