There are many benefits of plastic surgery. Countless people have improved their looks and their self-esteem by undergoing procedures from Botox for wrinkles to breast augmentation.
Celebrities play by different rules than other people. They are constantly in the public eye, and constantly worry about their image and appearance. They will often have a much larger tolerance for looking outrageous than the average person, and some celebrities will do almost anything in order to stay in the papers. This sometimes leads to celebrities getting so much plastic surgery that they no longer look even remotely like their former selves, or in some cases, even remotely human.
For regular people, plastic surgery would be considered successful if no one could tell that you had the procedures done. For celebrities, as long as you’re talking about them, they don’t care that much about the reason why. Here are five examples of celebrity plastic surgery gone wrong.
Every list of plastic surgery gone wrong begins with poor Jocelyn, the Cat Lady. Heir to a fortune, she tried to change her appearance to look more like a cat, a procedure called canthoplasty. She continued to be addicted to plastic surgeries until her face became barely recognizable as human.
The beautiful star of American Pie and The Big Lebowski has had so many unsuccessful plastic surgeries that she’s become the poster child for unsuccessful plastic surgery. She underwent breast implant surgery that left her with a bust that looked like it belonged on a 70-year-old-woman, and a disastrous liposuction and tummy tuck that gave her abdomen a deformed, wrinkly appearance. Her unsuccessful procedures have left her almost unemployable in the film industry.
Donatella Versace is an Italian fashion designer. She was not born a beautiful woman, but in her quest to change her appearance using plastic surgery, she’s made herself even less attractive. She is known to have had lip injections or implants, cheek implants, and numerous facelifts, all of which are universally judged as failures by the public. She is also famous for having one of the most obvious and unattractive breast augmentations ever.
Tori was the daughter of one of the richest and most powerful producers in Hollywood, and her connections won her a part on the wildly popular Beverly Hills 90210. She was not a great beauty, but had a fresh-faced appeal that made her popular. She began routinely showing up on the list of plastic surgery mishaps after she had a disastrous breast enlargement that looked unnatural and lumpy. She also obviously has had various procedures on her nose, chin, cheeks and lips that have given her face a vaguely mannish appearance.
There was a period of time during the 1980s and 1990s, when Daryl Hannah was considered one of the most beautiful women in Hollywood, and she was linked romantically with dozens of the most eligible bachelors in the world, including John F. Kennedy Junior. In an effort to prolong her appeal as a young, fresh-faced actress, she opted for a series of plastic surgeries on her face, including lip injections, Botox, cheek implants or fillers, an eyebrow lift, and Blepharoplasty on her eyelids. All of the procedures were immediately recognizable, and universally considered failures, and she’s almost unrecognizable as herself, and ironically, she looks older than she actually is instead of younger.
