Head Gasket Replacement

About to replace the head gasket on my 1990 3.8L Taurus GL.

I plan on replacing the PS hoses and the valve gaskets at the same time to save time and replace the achilles heels.

But, my dad tells me that I'm going to have to send the heads out to machine them down, because after a head gasket goes, it creates an imperfection in the heads. Is this true? Am I going to have to spen another 500 bucks to machine the heads down?
I am everything you want to be
