The World of Hollywood is all about appearances. The looks of actors are frequently as, if not more important than, their acting abilities. However, with age, appearances begin to diminish. With this, work dries up. This is the reason many, if not most, stars opt to get plastic surgery procedures done. So much so, that such procedures have become the norm rather than the exception. For some, plastic surgery works wonders. It breathes fresh life in faltering careers, for others, it does not have much of an impact. Then there are those cases where there is a botch-up, or the results don’t match the expectations. This is usually followed by corrective procedures and even more surgeries. Today we discuss 5 popular stars who say plastic surgery totally ruined their lives.
1. COURTENEY COX
The ‘Friends‘ star was everybody’s crush back in the day. She was breathtakingly pretty. Alas, age caught up, and she felt compelled to get a few procedures done to keep up with the cutthroat world of Hollywood where looks trump everything. Sadly, things did not go as envisioned by her and the results of her procedure were less than satisfactory. In 2016, she had the following to say in an appearance on ‘Running Wild with Bear Grylls’: “Getting older is not the easiest. But, I have learned lessons. I think I was trying to keep up with being older. I have done things that I regret, and luckily, they’re things that dissolve and go away, so that’s good, because that’s not always been my best look,”
2. TARA REID
The star who shot to fame in the hit raunchy comedy ‘American Pie’ had got a number of procedures done to keep up with the demands of Hollywood. Her boob job was botched and so was a body contouring procedure she had got done. She later admitted to the same. In an interview, she opened up about her experience with plastic surgery and said:”I was already dealing with what it looked like,” she said following her infamous red carpet wardrobe malfunction. “The last thing I wanted to happen was to have the whole world see it. The actual center part, where the areola is, instead of being a circle, it turned out to be a large square. It was horrifying.” She added, “It was very irregular, like a goose shape egg. It was terrible.”
3. HEIDI MONTAG
The Hills star has been very candid about her negative experience with w whole host of procedures she has had done. These total to about 10 surgeries, including – chin reduction, nose job, eyebrow lift, and breast implants. In an interview, she admitted: “People have fewer scars from car accidents than I have on my body,” Adding: “Sometimes I feel like Frankenstein, straight out of a sci-fi movie.”
4. K MICHELLE
The popular singer is apparently not happy with her butt implants and intends to do something about it. In an interview, she said: “For me, I want my normal shape back,” “For me, and my career right now, and me doing business — like really being on the frontline in business — I don’t need to have a man looking down at my ass when I’m trying to talk numbers. I don’t need to not be able to get the role.”
5. JANICE DICKINSON
She was one of the world’s first supermodels and has admittedly gone under the knife several times. Her list of procedures includes Tummy tuck, liposuction, facelifts, neck lifts, and breast enlargement procedures. Later in her life, she was diagnosed with breast cancer and admittedly regretted the breast plants she had got, saying in an interview: If I had to play my life over again, I would have never gotten breast implants in the first place,”
6. PRISCILLA PRESLEY
The former wife of Elvis, she was apparently consulting an unlicensed doctor and bore the brunt of a botch-up. Her spokesperson said: “Priscilla Presley was one of many documented victims of Dr. Serrano. An investigation that uncovered his misconduct ultimately led to his imprisonment. Ms. Presley dealt with this matter years ago and everything is now well.” We wish her well!
