10 Worst Celebrity Surgery Mishaps

Check out photos of stars before and after their botched cosmetic procedures

By Brynn Mannino

 

In an attempt to maintain a youthful appearance, actors and actresses have done their fair share of time in the plastic surgeon’s office. A little injection here or there they can often get away with (though they may still be ridiculed by their choice to do so), but time after time, they come out from under the knife with a face full of mistakes. From Jocelyn Wildenstein to Jennifer Grey, these celebrities—most of whom started out perfectly beautiful—top our list of the worst plastic surgery results of all time.


Tara Reid

Once best known for her role as high school sweetheart Vicky in American Pie, Reid is now better known for her bungled liposuction and breast implant procedure, which she received in 2004. Her bumpy breast scars, however, weren't as disconcerting as her spoiled belly: "I had body contouring, but it all went wrong," she said on The View. "My stomach became the most ripply, bulgy thing." Reid underwent reconstructive surgery in 2006, and posed for Playboy in 2009 to show off her fixed plastic surgery. Photos by Paul Smith/Featureflash (left) and FilmMagic (right).


Donatella Versace

Vice president of the high-fashion brand Versace, Donatella, 54, has gone through a series of surgeries since the 1990s. Among other adjustments, her most noticeable changes have been to her nose and lips, and her trademark swollen smackers have scored her a spot on nearly every list of plastic surgery faux pas over the past few years—though there's no real published evidence that Versace herself is unhappy with the changes.

Jocelyn Wildenstein

The still-active New York socialite married into a wealthy art-dealing family and began experimenting with plastic surgery in 1997, shortly before the demise of her 20-year marriage. Having spent a reported $4 million on various procedures, which are speculated to include cheek implants and numerous facelifts, her dramatic changes have earned her the nickname "Bride of Wildenstein," along with "cat woman," due to her taut, feline-like appearance.

Kelly Bensimon

The Real Housewives of New York City star was attacked by the media in 2008 for unabashedly flaunting her badly misshapen breasts. The former model and "ambassador for wool"—an achievement she mentioned in an interview with Harper's Bazaar, though the public has yet to figure out what that means—has since had a run-in with both copyright infringement and domestic violence, and doesn't appear to have undergone reconstructive surgery.

Jennifer Grey

If the romance flick–loving world hadn't fallen so wildly in love with the face that used to belong to Jennifer Grey, then perhaps her transition would have had less of an effect on her career. Though her aesthetic appearance remains pleasing, unfortunately, the rhinoplasty that she hoped would help her during casting calls relegated her mainly to made-for-TV films. Photos by Retna Ltd.


La Toya Jackson

Michael and La Toya Jackson had an openly tumultuous relationship (she withdrew her family support during Michael's child molestation case), but it seems they had one thing in common: a love for plastic surgery—and perhaps one particular surgeon. In-common procedures include chin and cheek implants, along with the now signature Jackson family pointy nose. Photos by Getty Images (left) and Ritschel/interTOPICS/Retna Ltd. (right).


Tori Spelling

During the second season of Beverly Hills, 90210, Spelling, who played the lovable Donna Martin, was chastised for her deformed breasts—complete with a severe chest depression. She denied having received a botched breast augmentation (for which she allegedly sued the doctor responsible), but finally confessed in 2008 to Entertainment Weekly: “I wanted to come clean that I had my boobs done in my 20s because people falsely write that I’ve had all these things done," she said, and later added, “I’ve had the two procedures that probably every other woman in Hollywood has had done.” Photos by Retna Ltd.


Lara Flynn Boyle

Inquiring minds aren't certain what changes have been made to the TV star’s face, who's best known for her long run on The Practice from 1997 to 2003. But we do know, as is obvious from photos, that the beautiful 39-year-old appears as though she has to work her cheek muscles overtime to let loose a smile—or perhaps the speculated implant in her upper lip is weighing her pucker down? The changes became all-too-apparent throughout her 2008 stint on Law & Order. Photos by Retna (left) and Retna Ltd. (right).


Scott "Carrot Top" Thompson

The red-haired comedian is no stranger to "Top 10" lists of horrifying plastic surgeries. Celebrity cosmetic surgery blogger Anthony Youn, MD, told MakeMeHeal.com that it appears as though Thompson has undergone an eyebrow lift, along with Botox injections, lip plumping and laser peels, which is evident due to his sudden lack of freckles. It's also been speculated that he uses steroids due to his suddenly muscular, veiny physique. Photos by Retna Ltd. (left) and WireImage/Getty Images (right).


Mickey Rourke

Hey Mickey, you're not so fine…anymore. After his resurgence in the movie The Wrestler, fans were puzzled at the former boxer and screenwriter's plastic surgery–riddled appearance. Suspected surgeries, according to Dr. Youn, include a facelift (signified by the scars in front of his ears), upper eye lift and a hair transplant (signified by his reappearing sideburns and wispy, continuously forward-moving hairline).

Quoting jessilin0113:

Mickey Rourke was a damn tragedy.

What this article fails to mention is that Rourke has been very open and honest about his surgery, that the docs really screwed up. The fact is he wasn't having "plastic" surgery, what he had done was reconstructive surgery after a boxing match left him  with half his face crushed *crushed cheekbone, broken nose and several other breaks/crushes*  He didn't just go out all "tra la la" and get the surgery done for the fun of it.

Really?  I never knew that.  Interesting.  I just knew the sexy was gone...  ;-)  Although the picture in this article isn't as bad as I've seen him in the past.

Jennifer Gray had a melanoma on the tip of her nose, having that removed was all she had done.

Jennifer Grey may have changed her appearance dramatically, but she stil looks good and doesn't belong on this list. I nominate:
