As the holiday shopping season and mad scramble to find the perfect present begins, Neil Romain already knows exactly what he is buying this time around for his wife of 15 years: a gift certificate. Lest you peg his selection as unimaginative, this particular gift certificate is for a $300 appointment with a cosmetic surgeon to blast away her varicose veins. Ah, remember the days when the worst gift you could expect was a red and green Yuletide sweater with blinking lights and appliqued snowflakes and bells?

Elisabeth Reed, a writer in Santa Fe, N.M., is an attractive 59-year-old who looks perhaps a decade younger. This, she believes, is because she never smoked, eats well and plays tennis regularly.

Rock 'n' roll has provided an important service throughout its relatively brief history: getting hot dates for ugly guys. Sure, Elvis Presley arrived matinee-idol ready, but Paul McCartney was the only truly "cute" Beatle, and Beastie-men such as Mick Jagger, Jimi Hendrix, the members of Led Zeppelin, Alice Cooper, the members of Kiss (with or without makeup), David Lee Roth and Meat Loaf became studs under rock's hot spotlight. So it is that we've reached another milestone in rock's prolonged death march: Ozzy Osbourne got plastic surgery.

Leave it to the Internet to take panhandling to a new level. Laurentiu Mata (his friends call him Larry) tried to raise $2,700 for his wedding. (It was a bad idea, said Mata, 28. Nobody donated, but plenty gave him their two cents.) Joyce wants LASIK surgery. There are hundreds, perhaps thousands, of examples of cyberbegging, a trend made famous in 2002 when Karyn Bosnak created www.savekaryn.com to find donors to help her pay down $20,000 in credit-card debt.

When stylist-to-the-stars Phillip Bloch tells Halle Berry to wear a dress, she's photographed in it in every magazine in America. When he tells Jessica Simpson to leave something on the rack, she drops it like a bad script. We caught up with Bloch at his home in Los Angeles yesterday to ask him a few really important questions about fashion, figures and all-around fabulousness. Here's what Bloch, who will be in town this weekend, had to say: Atkins or South Beach? I have a lot of friends on South Beach, so I have to say South Beach.

Like many plastic surgeons, Dr. Randal Haworth has developed a complex relationship with reality TV shows that feature surgical makeovers. Haworth, who set up shop in Beverly Hills, Calif., in 1995, readily acknowledges that he has benefited from the increased interest in plastic surgery that productions such as ABC's Extreme Makeover and MTV's I Want a Famous Face have sparked. In 2003, the number of cosmetic procedures performed nationally - from liposuction and tummy tucks to Botox treatments - jumped by 33 percent over the year before, reaching 8.7 million.
