There isn’t a good story about the event that caused me to ask the question, “How much would it cost for me to look like Nic Cage?” I've had other Nic Cage questions before, so this just kind of happened.
I brushed it off initially, but when I ran into Dr. Samir Pancholi—Medical Director of Cosmetic Surgery of Las Vegas and the President of the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery—I knew I found the person to get a straight answer to my burning question.
Dr. Pancholi went through every aspect of our faces and listed every procedure, from top to bottom, that it would take to turn me into the Academy Award-winning star of Moonstruck, Con Air, Leaving Las Vegas, The Wicker Man, and oh so many more. At first, I felt exposed, uncomfortable, and incredibly self-conscious about being picked apart so ferociously by a medical professional, but—by the end—I found a newly-discovered love for my own face as well as the face of the man from Face/Off.
By the way, Dr. Pancholi does not recommend doing this.
