看中国日报相关报道:The public toilets in the subway stations across Beijing would be receiving face-lifts.

  Beijing has decided to spend 6 million yuan ($750,000) on renovating the toilets in its subway stations this year. Sixty-four public toilets at stations across the city's two main subway lines will be upgraded to meet the same standards as the bathrooms at quality hotels.

  报道中的“face-lift”指的是“翻新”,有时也可写做“face-lifting”。

  “Face-lift”原意指“整容(除去面部皱纹的手术)”,后引申为(建筑物)的改建、装修和翻新,也可用做动词。

  看下面两个例句:The school's face-lift astonished students.(学校外貌焕然一新,学生们大为惊讶。)

  The automobile factory will face-lift most of its lines.(这家汽车厂多数产品的外型都要更新。)
