Here is the interview Gene Simmons gave AETV.com regarding his choice to have plastic surgery:
“How did you decide to get a facelift?
The face lift happened matter of factly. I decided to do it and when Leslie Greif, one of the executive producers on the show, asked if he could film it, I said, “Why not?”
Did anyone try and change your mind?
The kids weren’t that crazy about it, but went along with my decision. They trust my instincts. Shannon was fine with it. Matter of fact, she went with me. [In regards to] the rest of the world, I hardly ask or share info with anyone else.
Besides the facelift, were you considering getting anything else done? If so, what?
I also had tummy tuck and took some off of my man boob.
Ten years ago, would you have considered getting this surgery?
Ten years ago, I never thought about it. That doesn’t mean I had fast and rigid rules. I don’t. I never did. I always give myself the option to make up my mind when and where.
What anxieties/worries did you have before the surgery?
I had no anxieties or worries. Once I decide to do something, I do it.
Have you had any second thoughts about getting it done?
Have no second thoughts. I am more stunning now, than ever.
How did your family react to the results?
Sophie and Nick were a bit shocked. Soph cried when she first saw me, because she thought I was in pain. Once I explained to her I was feeling no pain, the rest was easy. As I said, they trust my instincts.”
