"Facelift Hotel" Unwraps the Mystery of Cosmetic Surgery From the Journals of a Beverly Hills Nurse Who Tended to the Who's Who of Hollywood

BEVERLY HILLS, CA--(Marketwired - Feb 2, 2015) - Maggie Lockridge, R.N. cared for over 40,000 recuperating cosmetic surgery patients while owner and administrator of Shanteque, Beverly Hills' leading cosmetic surgery aftercare facility. In a new edition of her book, "Facelift Hotel," Lockridge shares the comedy and drama of recuperation, the vital facts all should consider prior to going under the scalpel, and the names of L.A.'s most qualified surgeons to perform each cosmetic procedure.

Lockridge's surgeon recommendations are based on her knowledge of the patients' amount of bruising, swelling, pain, nausea, number of complications, placement of suture lines, and aesthetic surgical results -- information that could save patients hundreds of dollars in consultation fees.

Lockridge divulges key information regarding the selection of incision placement, a decision that could affect sexual sensitivity when considering breast augmentation and aesthetic appearance when considering a facelift.

While Lockridge would never disclose the names of her celebrity patients, she does share true stories of the well-heeled who recuperated under her care. One story divulges amorous antics between patients who enjoyed a little too much wine with dinner resulting in the male counterpart rupturing his ear sutures and winding up back in the operating room.

"Facelift Hotel" is available for purchase at, Barnes and Noble, and Amazon. Maggie Lockridge is available for media interviews.
