Carrot Top Plastic Surgery Gone Wrong Story
Celebrities are known for many things – their acting roles, their scandals, their marriages and divorces, and, increasingly, for their plastic surgeries – or, in some cases, their plastic surgery mishaps. Carrot Top is a well-known comedian, known for having performed at a variety of venues throughout the States and for various appearances on television. In addition to these sources of fame and recognition, however, his name has recently been making the rounds in relation to multiple plastic surgeries that he’s received, which many have noted are visible and, unfortunately enough, somewhat unflattering.
Back in the Day
Carrot Top is known for a number of things, chief among them his bright-red hair, self-deprecating humor, and highly developed prop comedy routines. He has been active in comedy circuits since 1989, appearing on shows as wide-ranging as Letterman Tonight to Tosh.0 on Comedy Central. Despite his relatively contemporary dates as a performer, Carrot Top isn’t exactly young – he was born in 1965, making him 49 years old as of 2014 — and, in a profession as dependent upon appearances as is stand-up comedy in such a vainglorious society as modern America is, he, like many, fell victim to the desire to reverse the natural signs of aging with cosmetic surgery.
His first encounter with plastic surgery is rumored to have taken place in the mid-90s, not too long after his initial rise to fame. In the beginning, his surgeries were not very noticeable, and indeed, it didn’t become obvious — or even well-known — that he had resorted to such measures to efface the characteristics of aging that inevitably appear over the years until later operations did a better job of making him look older, or at least more artificial, than anything younger.
Since those first bouts of plastic surgery, Carrot Top has been known to have had many, many more operations. Initially, these were aimed at simply making him look younger, more presentable, and better in general, goals all plastic surgeries typically serve at the beginning. Later, however, many of these surgeries are rumored to have been performed for the sake of erasing suboptimal outcomes of previous operations. Given the difficulties in performing plastic surgery in the first place, and the compounded difficulty of ‘undoing’ a previous surgery, this had the sole effect of making a point of surgery more and more prominent over the years.
These days, Carrot Top has taken to television and the Internet to discuss his surgeries, in his typically candid manner. Known for self-deprecation, he has cracked jokes here and there about his appearance, and, despite the fact that the plastic surgery is, at this point, relatively obvious, he does indeed look younger than almost-50. If anything, the operation has served to make him more popular, as it gives him more to talk about, and he faces the issues head-on, without the reticence or sensitivity common to so many Hollywood stars these days.
