5 Unfortunate Celebrity Plastic Surgery Nightmares
When your bread and butter is your face, it's easy to get sucked into the black hole of plastic surgery. While many celebrities opt for a subtle nip, tuck, or enlargement to help them keep up with the Kardashians (literally and figuratively), there are some who go completely overboard, transforming well-loved faces into utter nightmares.
Check out some of the more tragic faces in celebrity plastic-surgery history and learn what NOT to do when you're trying to retain your youthful appearance!
It's been 15 years since Tara Reid starred as an innocent high-school sweetheart in American Pie, and much has changed in a decade and a half — including the shape of her breasts and stomach. Tara had breast implant and body contouring surgery in 2004 that left her with a bumpy, ripply stomach. She had it corrected in 2006, then posed for Playboy three years later to show off her svelte figure.
Nobody puts baby in the corner — except the casting agents after Jennifer Grey, best known for her role in Dirty Dancing, had a rhinoplasty that changed the shape of her nose. Although this plastic surgery doesn't appear to be botched in any way (she still looks beautiful!), it was a blow to her career. She had a small comeback in 2011 when she won season 11 of Dancing with the Stars. That plastic surgery wasn't a disaster for her legs!
When you're famous for being famous, the staring eyes of the world can lead you to do some pretty crazy things, like 10 plastic surgeries in one day. Heidi Montag, who appeared with her husband, Spencer Pratt, in The Hills, was encouraged to undergo a brow lift, nose job, breast augmentation, scooped back, lipo on her inner and outer thighs, and more plastic surgery procedures by Hollywood surgeon to the stars, Dr. Frank Ryan.
“I really just went back … to get my nose reset and get a little bit larger of implants. … [My doctor] diagnosed me and was like, ‘you should get a chin reduction and an eyebrow lift,' ” Heidi said in a 2014 interview.
Rapper Lil' Kim's plastic surgery transformation has been slow and steady and … quite grotesque. In addition to apparent nose reconstruction, lip injections, and breast enhancements, Lil' Kim's skin tone appears to be much lighter. She appeared at a Hot 97 event last summer looking almost completely unrecognizable.
Lil' Kim gave birth a year later to her first child, daughter, Royal Reign, whose nose looks completely normal.
Bruce Jenner turned heads for his amazing Olympic achievements in the 70s, but his botched plastic surgery made the headlines in the 1980s and beyond.
The reality TV dad admitted to Access Hollywood that he underwent a partial face lift and nose job when he was going through a “bad time” in his life. “I had just gone through my second divorce, lost a lot of money. I was in a dinky house,” Bruce said.
The Kardashians, including his ex-wife, Kris, and her daughters, Kourtney, Khloe, and Kim, helped him get a second surgery to correct the first.
Maybe he should get his money back.Read More
