Quote janie.white: OK, so I found out that in 1984 Katherine Chancellor had a facelift in real life and they included it on the show. I am really curious to see it, does anybody have a video of it? Or can anyone tell me what it was like? Like did they show the actual operation or just cut to her in recovery?
I think the coolest part is that Jeanne Coopers reaction to the facelift in REAL life was recorded and used on the show! :D
A few days before the face lift, Kay was in her bedroom talking to Liz Foster. She showed her what she had to do to her face to look younger. She had these little suction cups with strings attached. She would attach the suction cups to the front of her face near the scalp and pull it backwards, to make the skin tight and fewer wrinkles. Then hide the strings under her hair. It was creepy!!!
I don't remember them showing anything gory, mostly shots of the surgical room, preparations, and no close up shots of the facial surgery.
Here's two clips prior to surgery (you can see how she looked before):
The picture is bad but Jill is showing her evil side
The first one Kay tries to make amends with Jill in their relationship. www.youtube.com/watch?v=eHJrHRAcTPw
The second one Jill reads Kay's new will (made just in case she doesn't make it through surgery). www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lrtz6EhoC18
This is the only clip I've seen online, it's Kay when she sees her face after surgery. Then they show Julia Newman, Nikki and Victor, followed by Liz chatting with Katherine at the hospital.
