But for Junior the bloodhound, the procedures were less about vanity than about the pup's quality of life.
The five-year-old pooch, from North Yorkshire, UK, suffers from a rare condition that causes excess skin to develop.
Having undergone a facelift in 2010 to remove folds under his eyes that were threatening his sight, Junior recently had a tummy tuck to deal with excess flaps around his belly.
Although the total bill came to more than $15,000, owners Denise and David Smart say that the surgeries have given Junior a new lease of life and were worth every penny.
What an uplifting story!
