It must be nice. I will tell you the t’ruth there are days when I wish I could have a glam squad and plastic surgeon on speed dial to spackle me back together, this is truly how the other half (or fourth) lives!!!
Southern California — this just in
Royal visit: Prince William, the polo match and the plastic surgeon [Updated]
Prince William has a plastic surgeon reserved for his upcoming visit to Southern California — but, no, he’s not getting any work done.
Beverly Hills plastic surgeon Dr. Toby Mayer will be on standby at the charity polo match Prince William will participate in Saturday afternoon at the Santa Barbara Polo Club. Mayer’s job? Making sure that if the Duke gets hurt he’s quickly taken care of.
Mayer, a polo player himself, said he was pleased that Buckingham Palace had asked him to help. “I’m very happy,” he said.
“But I’ve been doing this for 30-some years, so I’ve sewn up the great and the near-great.” Should an injury happen, Mayer said, it would most likely be a laceration — a stray ball or mallet can often swipe a player in the face.
The doctor continues:
Mayer said he wasn’t worried about potentially treating William.
“My practice is a celebrity practice, so I’ve done face lifts and more complex things on very, very famous people who earn their living in front of a camera,” Mayer said. “So that doesn’t make me nervous.”
The 30-plus-year polo player paused. “Hitting a penalty shot at the end of the game makes me nervous,” he joked.
Prince William and his wife, Catherine, are scheduled to arrive in Los Angeles on Friday, and will stay until Sunday evening.
