Extreme Makeover Season 2 saw the transformation of 44 men and women with incredible makeovers. This week featured the return of Extreme Makeover™ the television series with a two-hour season premiere. A new addition to this season is the Makeover Mansion, a place in the Hollywood Hills where the show's participants stay from their first arrival to their final touches. And on this week's premiere episode, four makeovers will be featured, including one mini-makeover.

Becky and Stacy:

While at Disneyland, these two sisters have no idea that their day would come to a halt. During a parade, a Disney ambassador came up to the two sisters to tell them that they have been selected to be on Extreme Makeover™ the television series.

Both sisters were born with cleft palate, a condition that results in an opening in the roof of the mouth. Between the two of them, they both underwent nearly 40 surgeries. As they grew up there was not a month that went by where they had a hospital appointment. Finally the two sisters got tired of this routine. Both Becky and Stacy also would like to have their teeth done. The two sisters did marry husbands who love them and look past their appearances. When Becky and Stacy had children they were worried that their children would have cleft palate, but they did not. The dream for the two sisters is to just be normal.

Their makeover journey began the day after their trip to Disneyland. At the Makeover Mansion, Extreme Team stylist Sam Saboura was there waiting to greet the first guests of the mansion. Guests get to workout and lounge there, and even though it looks like a vacation spot, a lot of work lies ahead for Becky and Stacy.

Becky and Stacy met with Dr. Anthony Griffin, the surgeon who will try to correct their cleft palate. The two sisters were pleased to know that Dr. Griffin goes to third world countries to work on cleft palates. They want smoother and rounder lips. Becky does know that she will look better after the operation. Stacy was a little let down after the consultation because most of what can be done has been done. Dr. Griffin tries to keep expectations low.

The two sisters then consult with Dr. Dorfman to discuss how dental work will change the infrastructure of their mouth. After their dental consultations was a consultation with Michael Thurmond. He wants to put muscle on both Becky and Stacy through exercise and a diet plan.

As the surgery nears, both sisters are starting to have difficulties in their relationship. After 40 surgeries, they hope this one will be their last. Stacy is the first to have surgery. Dr. Griffin is a little on edge since he will be performing a difficult operation. Before the surgery, Becky and Stacy were little on edge too. They had an argument, but in the end each sister told the other "I love you."

On the day of surgery, Stacy underwent:

  • Neck Liposuction
  • Browlift
  • Eyelid lift
  • Breast Enlargement
  • Breast Lift
  • Cleft palate repair

Next was Becky's day of surgery, her 24th. She would like to have as much of a normal looking lip as possible.

For Becky, Dr. Griffin performed:

  • Liposuction of the thighs, hips and neck
  • Browlift
  • Upper Eye lift
  • Breast lift
  • Breast augmentation
  • Tummy tuck
  • Cleft palate repair

Becky's lip deformity was much more severe than Stacy's. This was due to scar tissue and unstable bone caused by some many previous surgeries. This surgery went from remodeling to reconstruction. With surgery complete, now came the healing.

A week after surgery, it was time for the bandages to come off. Dr. Griffin was anxious about the results. When the bandages came off, both Stacy and Becky were thankful for their results. Dr. Griffin's hopes were high, but expectations weren't that high. So he was happy with the reaction both sisters gave.

Becky now meets with Dr. Robert Maloney for LASIK eye surgery. Everything went great and Becky's vision was greatly improved.

For the workout sessions with Michael Thurmond, Becky lost 35 pounds and went from a size 14 to a size 6. Stacy went from a size 7 to a size 2 and Michael feels her body is the epitome of what everyone wants in Hollywood.

Now the two sisters were going to get what they have been dreaming of all their lives, a beautiful smile. After performing extensive dental work, Dr. Dorfman shows each sister what she looked like before, then had her look in a mirror to see the new smile. Becky is in tears when she sees how beautiful her new smile is and it's exactly what she wanted.

A few days before the reveal, Sam Saboura tells Becky and Stacy that they have to go their separate ways and would not see each other until their final reveal. Before leaving, each sister tells the other her feelings and how they mean so much to each other. Sam is in tears. After leaving, Sam takes Stacy, then Becky to find a new dress for their reveal. Hair and makeup put on the finishing touches and Becky and Stacy were ready to meet their family and friends for their big reveal. Stacy couldn't believe the reflection she saw in the mirror was her own. Becky couldn't thank the Extreme Team enough and would do it over and over for that moment when she saw her final result.

At the final reveal, Becky was the first to go. Being presented by her husband, Becky came into the room strutting her stuff. Becky's husband couldn't believe that was his wife he was seeing. Becky is no longer ashamed of her face and body.

Becky now introduced Stacy for her reveal. This was a red carpet moment for Stacy. Stacy's husband thought she looked stunning. Both sisters were finally able to see the results of their makeovers. This experience brought the two closer together. Dreams were shared and fulfilled for Becky and Stacy.


Tim is from Kenton, Ohio. School was torture for him, being beaten up all the time because of the way he looked. Deep childhood scars were his deepest disfigurement. This affected his marriage because Tim treated his wife the way he was treated as a child. He made fun of her weight. Tim's wife ended up getting gastric bypass surgery. Tim also had a vasectomy even though his wife wanted more children. Then one day, Tim woke up and the anger was gone and has to work hard proving to his family that he is a changed man. His secret wish is to have a reverse vasectomy.

So one day, while watching a video, instead of seeing previews, Tim sees a video from Sam telling him that he has been chosen to be on Extreme Makeover™ the television series.

Tim goes to Los Angeles and meets with Dr. Jon Perlman to discuss plastic surgery. Tim first talks about his nose and Dr. Perlman agrees that it is out of proportion and that he will shorten the tip of the nose and narrow bumps. Tim would like to have his eyes worked on because he feels it makes him always look angry. Dr. Perlman said he would remove some extra skin and elevate the brow. Liposuction will also be performed to flatten some of the chest and remove some of the fat.

Before going to surgery Tim calls his wife. During surgery, Tim receives:

  • Liposuction of the hips, chest and abs
  • Fat injections into the face
  • Browlift
  • Upper Eyelid Lift
  • Nose job

The recovery for Tim was long, slow and extremely painful. However a week later, Tim was back at Dr. Perlman's office and things were great. During that visit, Dr. Perlman informed Tim that it has been arranged for him to see a doctor that performs reverse vasectomy. So Tim meets with Dr. Philip Werthman who specializes in microsurgery.

The surgery went smoother than expected. Dr. Werthman sees a great chance of success. A week later, Tim will see if the procedure was a success. The doctor tells Tim that if nothing shows up, that does not mean the procedure was not a success. However viewing the results, they see a sperm. Tim just wants to get back home, it had been weeks since he left home and he has one week to go.

Next for Tim was picking out a new wardrobe with Sam Saboura. Finally Tim received a new hairstyle. At first he was a little nervous about what the stylists were doing, but in the end, Tim was happy with the results. After eight weeks, Tim is finally ready to come home.

During the reveal, Tim's wife does the introduction and then Tim comes out to reveal his new look. Tim's father felt he's never seen anyone that good looking. Tim's wife felt that never in her wildest dreams did Tim look that good. In a private room after the party, Tim thanks his wife for sticking with him. So he gives her a birth certificate for their future child. This a new beginning for Tim and his family.

Mini-Makeover – Damen:

Damen came to Los Angeles to be an actor, but has been embarrassed by his teeth. Sam Saboura comes by to surprise Damen at his work. Damen thinks Sam is there to present him with a stock manager award, but instead he is there to present him with a mini-makeover. Sam also presents Damen with tickets to Chicago so that he can reveal his makeover to his family and friends back home.

Before going to Chicago, Damen meets with cosmetic dentist Dr. Bill Dorfman. This was the first time Damen ever went to the dentist. Damen is thankful to Dr. Dorfman for giving him a new smile. Now it was off to Chicago. Damen first gets a classic razor shave, then Sam helps him pick out a suit for his big makeover reveal.

Sam has the honors of presenting Damen during the reveal. Then Damen and his new look are revealed to his family and friends. The surprises were not over yet. Sam presented Damen with free head shots from a professional photographer, acting classes and a walk-on role on General Hospital.
