10 Celebrities Who Were Almost Unrecognisable After Plastic Surgery



Sometimes there is a little part of us regular folk that feels sorry for celebrities. With so much exposure to the media and photographers capturing their every private moment, there is an enormous amount of pressure for them to remain youthful and pretty. It’s no wonder many of them choose to go under the knife to help maintain their looks. In the land of celebrities, age is a sin and beauty is a virtue.

But that doesn’t stop them from going a little too overboard. While having plastic surgery to alter minor facial features is one thing, there are some celebrities who take it too far. As a result, they look contrastingly different to their old look and it makes them semi-unrecognisable. Here are some of the worst offenders.

Carrot Top

Scott “Carrot Top” Thompson seems to frequently show up on these sorts of lists. Along with an eyebrow lift, he’s also said to have had limp plumping, Botox injections and laser peels which have reduced the appearance of freckles,

Donatella Versace

Famous for being the vice president of the popular Italian fashion company Versace, Donatella has been going under the knife since the 1990’s. The most obvious change on her are those thick lips.

Jennifer Grey

The Dirty Dancing star tried to maintain her looks in the early 1990’s, but has since been unable to find work. In her own words: “I went in the operating room a celebrity – and came out anonymous.”

Jocelyn Wildenstein

Reports claim she has spent a whopping $4 million to make herself look like the image on the right. She has since earned the not-so-complimentary nickname, “Bride Of Wildenstein”.

Kelly Bensimon

In 2008, the Real Housewives Of New York City star came under fire in 2008 because of…those breasts…

Courtney Love

The ex-wife of Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain has admitted that she was convinced by Goldie Hawn to have a face lift at age 35.

La Toya Jackson

Being related to Michael Jackson, we suppose it was inevitable that one of his other siblings would have plastic surgery eventually. She even has the tell-tale pointy nose.

Mickey Rourke

Mickey Rourke is a veteran in the acting world, known for starring in such films as Sin City, The Wrestler and Iron Man 2. Surgeries allegedly include: facelift, upper eye lift and a hair transplant.

Tara Reid

Tara Reid has become something of an easy target for people to poke fun at horrifying plastic surgery procedures. The star of American Pie said that she, “had body contouring, but it all went wrong.,” and that, “my stomach became the most ripply, bulgy thing.”

Axl Rose

When Guns N Roses split up, everyone just assumed Axl let himself go. Nope, it turns out he’d also had a face lift and a nose job.
