Sylvester Stallone exploded onto the Hollywood scene with Rocky, a movie that he wrote and acted in himself – the ultimate underdog story which closely mirrored his own early life.
An absolute legend in Hollywood (and one of the most internationally recognized superstars and entertainers that the world has ever known), to say that Sly Stallone has an instantly recognizable face is probably the understatement of the century.
Well, that used to be true – right up until all of the Sylvester Stallone plastic surgery procedures started to get under way.
Today you can still recognize this incredible Titan of the entertainment industry, but it’s impossible to say that he looks exactly the same – or even that is aged gracefully.
Where did all of the Sylvester Stallone plastic surgery go wrong?
It could be (successfully) argued that the minute of Sylvester Stallone decided to have any plastic surgery is the moment that everything was flipped upside down and began to “run off the rails”.
For whatever reason, this Hollywood actor – one of the most handsome men on the planet – decided that it would be a good idea to have a facelift, Botox, and a nose job (all in the same year).
This resulted in a trifecta most celebrities would be smart to avoid.
A face frozen in time
Unfortunately, all of this plastic surgery has left Sylvester Stallone with a face that appears to be completely frozen at times and then incredibly old and worn out at others – probably not exactly the kind of look that he was after when he decided to go under the plastic surgeon’s knife.
Hopefully this will represent a bit of a warning to Hollywood actors and actresses that try to roll back the clock on Father Time with aggressive plastic surgery procedures that may or may not ever be able to produce the kinds of results that they are expecting.
Before and after photographs of Sylvester Stallone paint a very depressing picture. But at least he hasn’t allowed any of that to stop continuing on with his legacy in Hollywood!
