Jan. 23, 2013— -- Breast augmentation, Botox, liposuction. Almost no cosmetic procedure is off limits for the four Hollywood women who are the stars of TLC's new reality TV show.

Veronica Matlock, Alana Sands, Danya Devon and Frances Marques are the "Plastic Wives," married to some of the most successful plastic surgeons in Beverly Hills, with all the perks. Namely, free plastic surgery.

Marques said she has had her breasts done four times. For Matlock, three times. Devon said she loves Botox.

"I'm sure this lifestyle seems a little crazy," Devon said. "This lifestyle, look, is crazy. This is Hollywood, though."

Their new show, which premieres Sunday, Jan. 27, at 10 p.m. ET on TLC, leaves little to the imagination about what life in and out of the operating room is really like. At home Sands, the wife of cosmetic dentist Dr. Kevin Sands, has three full-time nannies for her two kids, two full-time masseuses and a full-time chef.

"I'm not complaining," Sands said. "I'm not complaining at all."

For these wives, it's a no-appointment-necessary and no-payment-required lifestyle. They have unlimited access to the operating room, whatever they want, whenever they want -- even a personal procedure room at home for a little nip and tuck when the mood strikes them. They are proud of the work they had done, living billboards of their husbands' steady hands.

"I heard some advice a long time ago that has always stuck with me, and it's if you're considering a plastic surgeon, look at his wife," Devon said. "And that's a perfect example of the kind of work he most likely does."

"My husband is doing a consult for a Brazilian butt, he'll tell the women, 'I did it on my wife, here look, look at this picture,' and it does help," Marques said.

And they are quick to judge the work of other surgeons' wives.

"If we don't like them, we don't hang out with their wives," Sands said.

Their husbands might try to get them to stop getting plastic surgery, but they always seem to lose the battle. Matlock lovingly refers to her husband, Dr. David Matlock, a gynecological surgeon, as "the vagina man."

"One way to get exactly what I want is to say, 'All right, don't worry about it. I'll go to doctor so and so," Matlock said. "And he'll be like, 'Oh, no you don't.'"

Even when faced with the possibility of critics saying they are overdoing it, the ladies weren't fazed.

"We're not telling anybody they have to go do this," Devon said. "I'm all about, like, 'Look, here's what I did. Here's the information. Take it or leave it.' If you like it, great. If you don't, great. No worries."

But no amount of Botox can ward off aging and the pressure they feel to stay perfect. Devon, a former entertainment news anchor, recently turned 40 and said she was faced with the reality of wrinkles.

"In any other community in the world, this makes absolutely no sense, but it's Hollywood," she said. "I wanted to continue working in television. I wanted to continue working in front of the camera, and unfortunately, you hit 40, you want to continue working in TV, there are some things that you've got to think about."

So Devon said she asked her husband, Dr. Brent Moelleken, to help with everything from injections to nips and tucks.
