Doctors are now offering what is sure to become the hottest surgerical breakthrough to hit Hollywood since the discovery of the breast-bazooming properties of silicone: "voice lifts." The surgery strengthens old vocal chords and has the patients sounding young again.
Just think: Al Pacino's voice restored with the youthful gravitas of Michael Corleone, that smoke-ravaged, raspy "Hoo-Ah!" stuff resigned to the DVD bargain bin. Melanie Griffith can go back to sounding like a teenaged, airhead vixen. Or Kathleen Turner can get that gravelly thing... OK, maybe instead she could have the surgery with the vacuum cleaner and the one with the needles.
