Wild show - "Extreme Makeover"

  1. Caught it last night at the gym. Wow. This wasn't like the guy who used to be on Rosie who whipped something fancy up with your hair and makeup in an hour. This was women devoting six weeks to major plastic surgery, peels, lasix, dental work, and just about anything you could think of.

    I admit they looked great when they were done, but would you take six weeks away from your life and family and go through all that discomfort to get all your physical flaws ironed over?

    Maybe not six weeks, but I would jump at the chance. I did not "bounce" back too well after popping out the kids.

    I would like to be on that show. But I really think I would need 12 weeks worth of stuff done. I was very happy for the lady who had the lip surgery that alone made a huge difference in her life and appearance.

    That poor lady with the malformed lips. The plastic surgeon said he had never seen so much extra tissue on a person's lips. IMHO I definately thought plastic surgery would improve her appearance and make her life more enjoyable.

    I didn't get to see the end of the show. Was that women happy with her surgery?

    I caught this for the first time last night, and YES! She loved her surgery, and she looked just amazing. Still had beautiful, full lips, but they weren't split in the middle with all of that extra tissue like they were before. She looked fantastic. I honestly couldn't believe it, and I had tears in my eyes (what? I'm a crier!) just thinking about how much better she is going to feel about herself. When she was sitting in the doctor's office, before he assessed her mouth pre-op, and she said she was nervous because she'd never really talked about feeling self-conscious about it, I felt so sad for her. The other girl looked very good, too, but her husband seemed a little wierded out that she'd changed so much, IMO. LOVED her haircut. Loved it.
