Date Aired: 12/9/04
Bill and Kim:
Bill is 42 years old and Kim is 44 years old, they are brother and sister from Austin, Texas. Even though there is a two year gap, they feel like twins. They both share the same issues and feel shy. Even though Bill is younger, he felt like he had to be the father figure when their dad died. They were left to raise themselves.
When growing up, socializing was not easy for both of them. They are both not comfortable looking at their face. Both are unhappy with their nose. Kim feels like her face is sagging, while Bill says he has a “cro-magnon" forehead. Kim wants to get rid of moles on her face and have a bigger breast size, while Bill wants hair on his head. Kim has spent her whole life being a single mom, taking care of her son who is now graduating high school. Kim hasn’t had many boyfriends or relationships and now wants to feel sexy and desirable. Bill is shy and feels people are looking at him, but he has found a partner and has been with Blake for 11 years now.
During a day at the park, while everyone is having a good time, the park ranger comes by and tells all of them to leave. That is, everyone except Bill and Kim, because they had been selected for the Extreme Makeover™ television show.
In Los Angeles, the first stop for Bill and Kim’s makeover is a visit with plastic surgeon Dr. Garth Fisher. Kim tells Dr. Fisher that she wants a full facelift, brow lift, surgery around the eyes, chin and nose. She learned about these procedures by watching the show. Dr. Fisher tells her that he will take extra fat and skin from under the eyes. For the nose, refining the tip will help Kim look more like an elegant woman. For Bill, he does not want to look upset or angry, and wants to look friendlier. By raising the eyebrows, it will help a lot. The doctor tells Bill he has great eyes, but they are hidden. Also taking a little tip of the nose will help refine Bill’s appearance. Both Kim and Bill were impressed by their meeting with Dr. Fisher.
The next day is surgery for Bill. An average day for Dr. Fisher is 12-13 hours at the office and misses his family with all the time he spends at work. Before surgery, Bill shaves and Kim thinks he looks like their dad. Bill then heads for surgery. Dr. Fisher begins by working on the nose, from there he liposuctions the fat away. Eyelid surgery helps Bill look less intense and a brow lift will take away that caveman look. Kim was shocked when she saw all the bandages on Bill.
On the eve of Kim’s surgery, she was frightened. But Bill was there to help put her fears to rest. During her surgery, Dr. Fisher starts with an upper eyelid lift. Mole removal takes away some of the distraction on Kim’s face. Dr. Fisher then resizes and refines Kim’s nose. The brow is raised to an elegant arc. The face and neck lift helps Kim look 10-15 years younger. In a second surgery, the breasts are augmented from an A to a C cup, and the face is resurfaced with a CO2 laser. After eight procedures, it was time for healing. Bill is there for Kim, and she feels like she could not have made it through without him.
After a few days, they can take a peek at their results. Kim looks at her new nose and saw quite a change. For Bill, he felt that it looks natural and that it fits his face.
For their next visit, Bill and Kim visit Dr. Maloney. They both have the same vision problem, they are farsighted. After LASIK eye surgery, they are able to read at 20/20 vision. Then it was a visit to cosmetic dentist Dr. Bill Dorfman. Kim had a ¼ of an inch overbite reduced through cosmetic dentistry.
Bill gets his hair line reconstructed with the help of Dr. Craig Ziering. The doctor performs hair restoration which takes about eight hours and takes about seven thousand hairs.
Next on the makeover was working on the body. Bill works on a month of cardio and weight training. Kim cannot workout because of her surgery and so Michael Thurmond puts her on high frequency meals. Bill has lost a lot of body fat and gained muscles. After dieting, Kim now has a perfect hourglass figure.
Kim and Bill have enjoyed their makeover journey together for eight weeks, but it was time to be separated for the final week. Style expert Sam Saboura takes each of them on a trip for a new wardrobe. For the final touches, Bill gets hair and makeup done and is given a hair cover-up until the rest of the hair grows back. He also gets a shave and Sam himself does the eyebrows. Bill sees the final results and thinks it’s unbelievable. Kim gets her hair done and when she sees her final results, she is speechless.
Back in Austin, Texas, it was time for the final reveal. Bill’s best friend from childhood has also shown up for the event, and they haven’t seen each other in years. When Bill came into the room, his partner Blake thought he looked 25 years old. Bill’s prehistoric look is now gone.

They take a trip to Dr. Maloney’s office, but Amber is in tears when she found out that she is not a candidate for LASIK eye surgery.
