Plastic or cosmetic surgery is the process of reconstruction or reshaping of face or body defects through surgery. Over the years plastic surgery has become a common norm amongst celebrities, with most Hollywood celebrities indulging in one form of reconstructive surgery or another. These changes are mostly irreversible and more often than not, these results can prove to be unsatisfactory. Here are Top 10 Disastrous Cases of Celebrity Plastic Surgery.
10. La Toya Jackson
La Toya Jackson was the sister of Michael Jackson. Despite having a strained relationship with her brother, she followed his footsteps when it came to plastic surgery. Not only did La Toya get plastic surgery like her brother Michael, but she also went to the same plastic surgeon, which resulted in her having similar results to her brother’s. Procedures she got include chin and cheek implants, and a nose reconstruction. Similar to Michael Jackson, La Toya’s plastic surgery also resulted in her having an extremely pointy nose.
9. Tara Reid
Tara Reid is a well-known film personality, most known for her role as Vicky in the movie American Pie. She had breast implants and body contouring procedures performed. However, the results were far from expected. Instead of the smooth look she expected, her stomach ended up having a wavy and wrinkled look. Her breast implants were also a failed attempt and resulted in bumpy and protruded breast scars.
8. Donatella Versace
Donatella Versace, sister of Gianni Versace is the Vice President and Chief Designer of the prominent and distinguished fashion brand, Versace. Donatella first started experimenting with plastic surgeries in the 1990’s. Donatella has gone through a series of adjustments to her body, with her nose and lips being the most noticeable changes in her. She went through a lip plumping procedure, which enlarged her lips more noticeably than necessary. Although Versace has never acknowledged her distress over these procedures, it appears as though they were both unsuccessful; her nose now appears sharper and bulkier, and her lips appear swollen.
7. Daryl Hannah
Daryl Hannah is a famous Hollywood actress, best known for her films Blade Runner, Kill Bill, and Wall Street. As she aged and wrinkles caught up to her, Daryl decided to rid herself of these wrinkles by getting plastic surgery. She had multiple procedures performed including eyelift, cheek implants, and lip implants. However, like many celebrity cosmetic surgeries, Daryl’s surgery also did not go as planned. Her thin lips that added to her beauty are now bulky and plumped, a feature that does not suit her. Although her cheek implants gave her a wrinkle free face, it resulted in her cheeks looking more rounded and fuller. Her eyelift gave Daryl an unnatural look, making her eyebrows very small and the area around her eyes abnormally firm.
