A new tell-all book by former Playboy Playmate Izabella St James reveals that life at the world famous Playboy mansion in Los Angeles may not be all it’s cracked up to be. But one of the perks of being invited to live at the mansion is that Hugh Hefner picks up the tab for plastic surgery.
84-year old Hugh Hefner definitely has a type: buxom and blonde and he’s willing to pay for his pretty girls to look just that way. Some former Playmates have openly admitted that they endured life at the mansion just for the plastic surgery perks. Hefner is said to keep a running tab with a Beverly Hills plastic surgeon, and gives plastic surgery as birthday gifts to his “girlfriends.”
Miami plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Salzhauer says, “It is quite common for a boyfriend or spouse to pay for their girlfriend’s/ wife’s plastic surgery. It is not common for a boss to pay; however, I could see Hef paying for plastic surgery for one of the models and viewing it as an investment for his product the Playboy magazine.”
Dr. Paul S. Nassif, a Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon and Rhinoplasty Specialist in Beverly Hills, California says, “It is not necessarily common or uncommon for a significant other to fund one’s plastic surgery. It is a personal decision, and every individual situation is unique.”
With Hef’s recently announced upcoming nuptials to Playmate Crystal Harris, Makemeheal.com can’t help but wonder what her wedding present from Hef will be.
