"DeLisa & Lorraine" -
One loses something while one gains something
DeLisa Stiles (32; The Colony, TX), a military
vet trying to cope with a failing marriage. She and her
husband have been on and off for a while now. Jason (the
guy's name) cites inactivity because she was
uncomfortable with her body. She doesn't want to feel

Lorraine Norris (38; Clinton Township, MI) fights to
get over the hurdle of an abusive childhood, but that's
the least of her worries, as she hadn't seen a dentist
in years and, as a result, LOST her teeth at 25. If that
wasn't bad enough, she feels like a guy and refuses to
believe anything her husband tells her.
The keys to
transformation: obviously a full-mouth implant and work
with Dr. H to correct the face based on that. Also, Dr.
Lynn wants to try and let out the inner strength that
has been suppressed for so long.

Welcome to the Swan
Program, as Lorraine gets words from her daughter and
DeLisa gets love from mom.
consult with Dr. D: "She has a very nice shape, but she
has a lot of body fat." His goal: feminization. DeLisa
can't wait. The night before, she's told that she can
have one phone call... but she doesn't want to call the
hubbie. Next day, DeLisa is marked and ready. Stomach...
done. Liposuction... done. Face... done. "It's so worth
it, and I haven't even seen myself with."
consult with Dr. W: It's a basic screw and seal job for
the implants. No doubt, this is the most extensive work
ever done. Dr. W will have to see her another dozen
times, leaving her with a liquid diet.
DeLisa loves sweets...
Not going to cut it on the diet, as she has to lose 22
pounds. Shouldn't be a problem for Lorraine, as she
can't have any dentures on PERIOD. Her surgical consult
with Dr. H shows the wear of both dentures and children.
Lorraine's pain is keeping her up. Next day, Dr. W drops
by with a pair of dummy teeth for Dr. H to work on. She
gets done without a hitch, but the recovery is going to
The day afterwards,
Lorraine is concerned with pain. "She may not heal in
time for the pageant." She gets pain meds for the
interim. DeLisa, on the other hand, isn't into being
told what to do. It's why she became an officer.
And now, what to eat on
a liquid diet. Basically what you eat now... only less
of it and pureed to kill mode.
And speaking of kill
mode, Swan security arrives with a stunner... divorce
papers for DeLisa. "That's eight years in 11 pages."
Nely has been there. "You're never ready. When someone
like that lets her guard down, you feel it."
Lorraine calls home for
support from her husband... and everyone's hanging out,
as she's experiencing separation anxiety through what
she views as the husband rejecting her. Dr. Lynn tries
to air out grievances by doing a roleplay.
Dr. Lynn also works with
DeLisa to find emotional closure. She writes a letter,
as Dr. Lynn notes a breakthrough.
And finally, Lorraine
has one more surgery for her teeth. She's paralyzed with
fear, but Nely tries to get her to cowboy up. "It's
always a lot of work, and it's hard." All Dr. W has to
do now.. is screw the babies in. And they look nice.
Meanwhile, DeLisa is
letting the divorce get to her stomach. Time for an
intervention. Debbie wants to know how tough DeLisa is,
so it's time for... another notch! in the gym. "Her
biggest challenge is that sweet tooth." But DeLisa has
the will to throw the candy away. Good for her.
Fast forward a month to
the final reveal. First up, Capt. Stiles assumes her
position after seeing a masculine body and a
world-shattering divorce. Will it be Jason's mistake?
Let's see... Stiles, front and center. At ease, soldier.
Very nice, as she feels like a whole person. She cites
divorce as the turning point. And now the point of
no-return... at the Mirror of Fate.
"Oh God... Thank you...
Wow! It's amazing! So much for the swollen army girl"
Yeah, I'd say so, as she
came through a lot. "She's a babe," says Dr. D. Now to
Lorraine, who lost all her teeth, 13 years, and a lot of
esteem over the years. The challenges now are to learn
how to laugh, talk, eat, and smile. Well, here's a
start... doesn't take away all the aging, but it gets
you there, you know? How would she take it?
"Oh my god! I don't
even look like me! You guys are genius!" She can't
stop about how different she looks. You can tell she
loves it. But now, the moment of truth. Remember,
the experts are judging on poise, beauty, overall
transformation, and whose surgery cost less. Because Fox
doesn't have ANYTHING until Idol starts back up again. Joining Jennifer Patton, Gina Davis, Erica Moore,
Kari Bravada, and Cinnamon Smith in
the Swan Pageant is... DeLisa. Lorraine's happy to have
gotten what she did, though. Here to see her new
smile... Brandon, the husband. "Didn't even know what to
think in my head." "I feel like I have a whole new
beginning to go to," Lorraine says.
But at the end, yet
another beginning, as next time we see DeLisa will be in
a few weeks for the pageant. Next time we see you will
be next week, we hope, as the transformations continue
with a bombshell or three.
