While the protagonist of Teshigahara's film deliberately pursues a new face and identity out of a sense of embittered self-interest generated by severe physical disfigurement, the protagonist of Seconds (John Randolph) is a buttoned-down businessman who is pressured into the procedure by an old friend who promises him a new lease on life if he takes the offer.
Early on Seconds builds a feeling of anxiety and paranoia really well (why does our protagonist feel like that is never explained but the effect itself is brilliant).
