20 Celebrities Whose Plastic Surgeries Went Awry

Celebrities are generally beautiful when they are in front of the camera. But some have a way of wanting to be more beautiful than nature. In order to better their careers and have general acceptance, some celebrities have had so many transitions orchestrated by plastic surgeons. A few might get a little injection here and there to maintain a youthful appearance, while others go all out to re-brand most of their body parts. The truth is, surgeries don’t always turn out well.

1. Paris Hilton


Paris Hilton was amazing but she was most probably not happy with her face. She went through many surgeries on her nose and lips. Despite her obsession with her natural lips, she passed it through surgery knives in an intent to make it cuter. She is in her early 30s but is aging rapidly and now looks like a plastic doll.

2. Donatella Versace


Donatella Versace is a former fashion model who has gone through many surgeries to become more attractive. She has evolved to something far from her actual self. Currently, she is the vice president of the Versace group. Her most noticeable changes are her nose and lips and she testifies that she was not genetically that way from birth. She really does look scary now

3. Tara Reid


Tara is best known for her character in American pie. She was a beauty and wanted to be more. Tara has gone through breast implant procedure and lips surgery. But it didn’t turn out pretty, it only made her look ugly. She has also spoiled her once flat tummy, now it looks like it carries some diseases within.

4. Kenny Rogers


Surgeries did not really favor popular Singer, Kenny Rogers. He has done a lot of changes to his face; his eyes, chicks, and nose, as they look quite different from before. And his cheeks look like they were injected with something. His fans can hardly recognize him except when he sings. Fortunately, his voice is still the same.

5. Michael Jackson


Greatest singer of all time, Michael Jackson was not happy with his color, so he started the body beautification process by using tons of cream to enhance his complexion. He went further through several surgeries for a nose job and color change. He looked so bad after his surgery, at a point his nose was entirely rotten and the skin on his face was leaving its original landmark. Before his demise, he went entirely white-skinned.

6.  Farrah Abraham


Farrah Abraham is one of the biggest examples of bad surgery. She is a porn star and has done a couple of body augmentations. Farrah became the victim of an allergic reaction when she did her lip job, they are totally damaged as a result of surgery gone bad. The reality star has also done a nose job, chin implants, and two boob jobs.

 7. Heidi Montag

The former ‘The Hills’ star had 10 plastic surgery procedures in one day. The surgeries included a nose job, liposuction and upgrading her cup size.

8. Daryl Hannah


Super hot diva, Daryl Hannah had done a series of surgeries but never admits it. She has done a facelift, brow lift, lip job and fillers in her cheeks. We can clearly see the difference between her picture of before and after. It all went awry.

9.  Dolly Parton


Singer and writer, Dolly Parton has done more surgeries than her contemporaries – leaving no part of her body untouched. She has done breast augmentation, brow lift, fat grafting, blepharoplasty, rhinoplasty. Although she is naturally busty, the boob job has made it even more enormous for her petite figure. In an interview, Parton said, “Anybody that’s got the nerve, desire and the money to have surgery, should find a good doctor and just do it.”

10. Amanda Lepore


American model, socialite, singer and performance artist, Amanda, is one of the most notable transgender public figures.

She has changed her complete body, thus turning into an ugly one. In her case nothing went good.

11. Cayetana Fitz


Cayetana Fitz has gone under several surgeries throughout her 87 years of existence. She is now famous for her disfigured face. She was pretty enough to be a model or actress but she didn’t pay attention to her natural look but went ahead to book sessions with plastic surgeries who now made her look really odd.

12. Jocelyn Wildenstein

Jocelyn Wildenstein was the most beautiful lady in the ’70s. Her husband left her for a Russian model, and that must have been the trigger that led her to think body enhancement will bring him back. Jocelyn is so passionate about surgery, but is unlucky with the outcome – she now looks uglier than the model who took her man.

17. Lil Kim


If you knew Lil Kim a decade ago, you sure won’t recognize her today. She has faced a lot of backlash since stepping out with her new appearance during last year’s Hot 97’s Summer Jam XX show.
