Hiding cosmetic surgery from spouse now grounds for divorce?

A man in China divorced his wife for not being forthcoming about past cosmetic surgeries; expert facial plastic surgeon weighs in on unprecedented ruling

(PR NewsChannel) / November 5, 2012 / TAMPA, Fla. 

divorceWith divorces happening in more than 50% of marriages today, there are always interesting causes for the failed marriage. But a husband suing his wife, and winning, because he thought her “too ugly” may be the strangest case yet.

The northern Chinese man married his wife and was reportedly absolutely in love with her. She became pregnant and gave birth to a baby girl, a girl the horrified husband thought to be incredibly ugly.

The “distraught” husband accused his wife of having an affair and demanded to know who the father was. While the wife had not cheated, she did leave out the fact she had spent more than $100,000 on intense plastic surgery to “severely change how she looked.

The husband proceeded to divorce and sue his now ex-wife claiming that she had gotten him to marry her under false pretenses.

Tampa-based facial plastic surgeon Dr. Richard M. Castellano explains that much surgery is not just a little white lie.

“$100K is a lot to spend on plastic surgery, and though it isn’t first date conversation, that is a big part of someone’s past to hide. Taking the news to the levels of a lawsuit and divorce, though, is obviously something that wouldn’t get to far in western culture.”

Astoundingly, the judge sided with the husband and ordered a payment of $120,000 be paid to the husband.

Dr. Castellano, who has performed more than 5000 facial surgeries and procedures in his career, and the founder of his Tampa practice, ImageLift, says that this unique ruling defies the true nature of choosing cosmetic treatments in the first place.

“Our patients come in and are considering treatments because they want to make themselves feel better,” the facial plastic surgeon says. “Face lifts aren’t about making other people happy, it’s about getting a rejuvenated look that makes the patient feel more confident and sharing that with the world around them.”

We do not know whether or not the now ex-wife will be countersuing for her ex-husbands facial appearance.
