The miracle and consequences of plastic surgery are the unifying theme for this made-for-TV movie. Three women, all "of a certain age" are having problems in their lives which they believe plastic surgery can cure. Rich widow Millie Gorman (Janet Leigh) is convinced that her sex appeal has waned along with her looks and youth; bored housewife Sandy McLaren (Loretta Swit) is none too pleased that her husband regards her more as a pal than a lover; and former model Vanessa Wagner (Lee Meriwether) now the boss with her own modeling agency, fears the years showing on her face will ruin any chance she has of reuniting with a former lover who comes back into her life. As the story progresses, Sandy gets breast implants which have precisely the opposite of the desired effect on her husband; Vanessa gets an eye-lift, only to find out her lover isn't worth the trouble; and Millie, in desperation to look younger and more "attractive" to men, puts her life in jeopardy when she has a face-lift despite her doctor's warnings. Mirror, Mirror first aired October 10, 1979, on NBC.
