Thelma & Louises on Extreme Makeover

August 03, 2005 11:01 PM by Joe Blackmon

"Episode 312" – Witness the exciting makeovers of Tricia, a 40-year-old manager of a yoga and massage salon and Kari, a 41-year-old unique aid at an elementary school, two best friends both from Fort Lauderdale, FL, on "Extreme Makeover," THURSDAY, AUGUST 4 (8:00-9:00 p.m., ET), on the ABC Television Network. (Rebroadcast. OAD: 1/20/05)

Tricia and Kari were given a life changing experience, as they were able to change their looks in an effort to transform their lives and destinies and to make their dreams come true. This was all accomplished through the skills of an "Extreme Team," including plastic surgeons and cosmetic dentists, along with a talented team of hair and makeup artists, stylists and personal trainers. In addition, participants recuperate at the "Makeover Mansion," the new luxurious mansion tucked away in the Hollywood Hills, CA, complete with stunning views, a swimming pool, fully equipped home gym and big screen televisions.

Tricia and Kari are two exuberant best friends who have gotten into trouble and mischief together since they were 13 years old. Kindred free spirits and soul mates, they’ve been through a lifetime of fun, adventure and heartbreak. Two years ago Kari endured the loss of her six-year-old son, Hunter, who was born missing 90 percent of his brain. During the tragedy, Kari went through depression and gained a lot of weight. With the help of best friend Tricia, Kari was able to get through the hard time. Now these two frazzled "Desperate Housewives" will leave the car pools and housework behind and head to Los Angeles, where they are about to embark on the greatest adventure of their lives-an extreme makeover together. See how the "Extreme Team" helps this real life "Thelma and Louise" duo realize their dreams of becoming beautiful.

Tricia’s procedures included a brow lift, upper and lower eyelid lift, tightening of lower eyelids, facial fat injections, liposuction under chin (on Q pain pump), inner and outer thighs, tummy tuck, breast lift and augmentation, LASIK eye surgery, Foto facial, sclerotherapy for leg veins, chemical peel, Restylane to lips and nasal labial folds, Botox to forehead, 1 extraction, gum lift on 7 teeth, 11 da Vinci porcelain veneers, 5 crowns and a bridge.
