"Dore & Amy" - December 13
Down to the wire as we have one more slot on the Swan
Pageant to fill.
First up, Amy Williams (27;
Texas), a waitress and mom who has a dream to sing, but
a face for radio... and a voice to match, but Idol
starts in January. She sees a big nose from a
Marcia Brady incident when she was little. She also sees
loose skin, a double chin, and something weird with her
The keys to transformation: erase underachieving. Dr.
Lynn wants to do that. Dr. Haworth needs to find a focal
point on her face, but it's pretty hard to do, so he
goes to jaw implants. As for the teeth, decay prompts a
full mouth reconstruction.

Her competitor: Dore
(40; Las Vegas), a general contractor who wanted to get
married and start a family. Her fertility treatments
left her hormones out of whack, and as a result, she
lost her baby in a miscarriage. The treatments also left
their physical toll on her body.
The keys to
transformation: She needs to grieve for the lost baby
and the idea that she may be too old to conceive again.
Also, a chin implant will help with the face and the gym
will help with her body. Ideally, she would get a tummy
tuck, but if she were to have a child, it was basically
undo the tummy tuck.

Getting started is easy
for Dore, but hard for Amy as she thinks about the
family she left behind.
consult with Dr. H: "Her bone structure is weak,
and it really gives her a plain look."
She is the first Swan to get angular jaw implants, which
carries with it a high risk of infection.
Dore's surgical consult
with Dr. D: "Fertility treatment have wreaked havoc on
Dore's body. I want to feminize her to find the beauty
under her hard hat." He concentrates on the face and the
liposuction. She just needs to work out a lot. Dore is
anxious about her surgery. She gives us a "hang loose"
before heading into the OR. Liposuction... needless to
see, should not be tried at home. Dr. D doesn't endorse
it. Neither do we here at the web's best. The chin is
done... the nose is done... We're done.
Amy's dental consult
with Dr. W: "I'm going to have to extract numerous
teeth. I won't know the extent of the damage until I
really go down there and see what's going on." Here you
go, Dr. Sherri... the worst case of decay you'll ever
see! In the end, four decayed teeth came out, and her
mouth was prepared for temporary veneers. To this end,
Dr. W video conferences with Dr. H, telling him that the
facial surgery may need to be put off with the extent of
her infections for two more weeks.
After two weeks and one
frog from the family, Amy is ready for the OR. "Peace,
I'm outta here!" The implants are in. The tummy tuck is
done. The frog is out. And this may be a tough recovery.
The day after, Amy's face is blown up like a balloon.
The face will get worse before it gets better, and
that's one of the advantages of not having a mirror,
because if she saw herself now... Damn. Two days later,
she returns to the apartment, where she needs a
cheesburger. A call from home makes the program even
Dore meanwhile figures
that she looks like Frankenstein. She gets a birth
announcement from her friends, which makes HER
transformation even harder. "I'll never know what it
feels like to be in this club." She goes to therapy,
where she pours her soul out, as Lynn tells her to let
At week 7, Amy still has
to puree her food and rinse out with hydrogen peroxide.
At the gym, Dore is
working hard to lose pounds, but she still needs to lose
15 pounds on account of the fertility treatment.
Amy heads for one more
surgery: Lasik AND a lens implant, only the second
performed post-FDA approval. The test: what time is it?
"11:38?" She passed.
months, as Amy now has a healthy smile and an even
brighter vision. When she arrived, she was a droll
waitress... now she's the catch of the day. The hardest
part was to do the liquid diet thing. Well after the 3
months in hell, the paradise. To the Mirror of Fate,
"I have a waist! I
have a jaw!"
She has a behind, too... as the whole package just..
Bam. She won't hold back anymore, but will it be enough
to outdo Dore's? She came after a ten-year war with
infertility, but will she make it over the crossroads of
her life intact? Well, whether she will be impregnated
remains to be seen, but she certainly looks impregnable.
She's ready to turn the page, and we're ready to turn
"WOW! WOW! WOW! This is
incredible! I could stay here all day!" She looks 10
years younger. "She's my hero," Dr. D says. That says a
lot. But will we see her NEXT WEEK in the pageant? Remember,
the experts are judging on poise, beauty, overall
transformation, and... well, I'm out of jokes here,
so.... Joining Jennifer Patton, Gina Davis, Erica Moore,
Kari Bravada, Cinnamon Smith, DeLisa Stiles, and Marsha
Amy. She deserves a chance to be in front of a crowd,
but Dore is leaving with a lot less baggage on her
shoulders. Will it translate into a family? Only time
will tell the tale on that one, as she is reunited with
husband Kurt. May they make many a baby together.
Next up, the
octupleheader for all the cheddar, as previous winners
complete the transformation for a chance to be crowned
the Swan. Who will succeed Rachel Love-Fraser? Tune in
and find out.
