"Extreme Makeover" takes individuals, chosen from thousands of applicants across the country, and gives them a truly Cinderella-like experience by changing their looks completely in an effort to transform their lives and destinies, and to make their dreams come true. This is all accomplished through the skills of an "Extreme Team," which includes plastic surgeons, eye surgeons and cosmetic dentists, along with a talented team of hair and makeup artists, stylists and personal trainers.
Thursday's season premiere features Caroline and Catherine, 32-year-old, mirror image twins who have grown apart, physically and emotionally, throughout the years and wanted extreme makeovers to bring them back together. Caroline, a dog groomer and mother from Carson City, Nevada, had rhinoplasty, a chin implant, lower eye lift, tummy tuck, breast implants, liposuction on the thighs and extensive dental work, including 12 upper porcelain veneers, aesthetic lip surgery, gum recontouring and two root canals. Her identical twin sister, Catherine, a hair stylist and mother from San Jose, California, had a tummy tuck, breast augmentation and dental work, including 8 upper veneers, teeth whitening, gum recontouring and orthodontics on the lower teeth. Dan, a 40-year-old radio producer and father from Seattle, Washington, wanted an extreme makeover to improve his self-esteem and catch the eye of a co-worker he's had a crush on. He had chin and jowl implants, buckle pads excision, liposuction on the cheeks, liposuction on the chest, abdomen and hip rolls, fat injections in the face, a hair restoration, Lasik eye surgery and dental work, including gum reshaping, teeth whitening and 8 upper veneers.
