About this title

Synopsis:

Facelift Hotel takes you behind the scenes of Shanteque, Beverly Hills most luxurious cosmetic surgery recovery retreat. It takes you into the rooms of the stars, celebrities, and ultra rich who sought to alter the ravages of time through trickery via the scalpel. You share in the comedy and the drama of the recuperative period. You will also be led down Grandmother Nature's disrespectful path to aging and exactly how to fend off her vengeful ways. But More Importantly Maggie Lockridge shares the names and expertise of her favorite Beverly Hill's cosmetic surgeons. She obtained her knowledge used in compiling this list through her eighteen years of administering to the care of over 40,000 recuperating guests.

About the Author:

Maggie Lockridge, R.N., has been administering to the needs of the cosmetic surgical patient for the past eighteen years. She graduated as a Registered Nurse from St. Elizabeth''s Hospital in Boston, MA in 1963. Maggie was an Industrial Nurse at the General Motors Futurama Pavilion during the World''s Fair of 1964-1965 in Flushing N.Y. and worked in the operating room of Sloan Memorial Cancer Research Hospital in N.Y.C. She joined the U.S.A.F.N.C. in 1966 and married a fighter pilot in 1967. They were blessed with two beautiful children and raised them in Hawaii.In 1986 she moved to Los Angeles and spent the next seven years as Charge Nurse and then Administrator of Le Petit Ermitage, what was then Beverly Hills leading cosmetic surgery recovery retreat, located in the exclusive L''Ermitage HotelIn 1993 Le petit closed it''s doors and Maggie opened Chantique in 1994, Maggie put together a warm and nurturing staff to tend to her guests'' every need, Chantique offered its services to the patients of more than sixty cosmetic surgeons, Maggie oversaw the needs of guests from around the country and from every corner of the world. Some of Maggie''s Beverly Hill''s guests stayed with her several times over the eighteen years and she was referred to by writers as "The most recognized and least acknowledged woman in Beverly Hills." So many women of Beverly Hills had been her guest and under her care, but no one knew her in public.Her guest list ranged from actors and actresses, business men and women, politicians, the socially prominent and to men and women from all walks of life who desire to fight grandmother nature or embellish her work. Los Angeles has been designated as the cosmetic surgery capital of the world with more surgical procedures taking place there than any other city. Maggie feels that her job was unique to her profession and could probably only succeed in the city of beauty, Los Angeles.
