Celebrities are no strangers when it comes to plastic surgery. Also, the American Society of Plastic Surgeons reported that Americans spend more than $16 billion on cosmetic procedures annually. However, plastic surgery can go wrong for you. Here is a list of celebrity plastic surgeries gone wrong.
In an episode of The Doctors in 2015, Teen Mom star revealed how her lips enlarged before she even got a single permanent injection. “As soon as he touched my lip with whatever numbing product he put in there, my lip was having an allergic reaction right away,” she stated. “I was laying down flat, but I was seeing more of my lip come up and come up. I’m just super happy that I’m alive.” Abraham later went on E! series Botched, and they explained to her that the “swelling could’ve gone into your tongue, the back of your throat, cut off your airway and basically choked you to death.” The Mirror reported how Abraham got a third breast augmentation to fix “burning and pain issues” from past surgeries.
Khloe Kardashian endured some amazing transformation over the years, and while she managed to do everything naturally, like losing weight by going to the gym, her lips weren’t amazing. She confessed that going for a lip injection made her face look “f***ed.” “It did not work for me,” she said on an episode of Kocktails with Khloe. “I looked crazy, and I still think the effects are in there.”
In a YouTube video with makeup magnate Jeffree Star, Griffin confessed that she left surgeries “about five years ago” because she “realized I did not turn into Jennifer Aniston, which was the plan.” Griffin stated that she was “botched by Botched” by an upper-lip chemical peel done by one of the doctors on E!’s reality show. She was seemingly left with unchanging discoloration, but this wasn’t the worst that happened to her. People stated that Griffin underwent near-fatal difficulties after getting liposuction on her “stomach, thighs and the inside of [her] knees” in 1999. “When I woke up I was not able to pee. I got toxicity and had to go to the emergency room and wear a catheter for a week,” she revealed. “It was life-threatening, and the results were nonexistent. In fact, I started running after that and got much better results.”
As stated by The Hollywood Reporter, women in Los Angeles “receive twice as many filler, laser and Botox treatments” as their companions on the other shore. Dana Delany was one of them. “My dermatologist was saying, ‘You should try it,'” she shared with Prevention in a 2010 interview. “He injected my forehead, hit a nerve, and created a huge hematoma. The nerve has been dead ever since.” The nerve destruction left her with a “droopy right eye” and a hatred for plastic surgery.
TMZ published how Priscilla saw Dr. Daniel Serrano sometime “around 2003.” The Argentinian doctor had been giving out supposable “miracle injections that worked better than Botox” to Hollywood stars, like Larry King’s wife, Shawn King. The value of each injection was within $300 and $500. However, Serrano wasn’t a licensed doctor, and Daily Mail reported that he was “only licensed as a nurse” when Presley went to see him. His miracle injections were actually second-rate industrial silicone, the same material used to oil your car when it’s in the shop. His work created “lumps, paralysis, and holes” in his victims’ faces, and Shawn King was given a “lump in her lip that made it difficult to speak and drink liquids.”
In an interview with Us Weekly, she confessed that she laments having a boob job. She stated how she was only 19 years old when she went to surgery, and she didn’t accurately investigate her doctor because she was in “such a hurry” to have bigger breasts. She had at the end “bigger implants” than she asked. When she went to a second surgery, to correct the damage that has been made, it resulted in even bigger implants. “I felt very vulnerable,” she said. “I was getting ready to film Wild Things, and I didn’t want to get into a lawsuit with some plastic surgeon. It wasn’t right what the doctor did, but it is what it is.” Richards ultimately got a third surgery to make her breasts the dimension she had always desired. “I’m happy with them now,” she shared with Us Weekly. “But in a year that could change.”
GQ published that the reason Cardi B went to have surgery was that of her job as a stripper and because her partner had cheated on her with a woman who “had a fat, big a**.” Cardi B shared with Vlad TV how she was “desperate to have a bigger a**, and then almost every girl was going to this lady that was getting the shots in Queens, and it’s like, ‘Well, give me her number and hook me up.'” Cardi’s surgery cost her only $800, However, the surgery is forbidden in the US, but she felt like it was “the craziest pain” she ever had. Cardi B shared with GQ that she was in so much pain that she believed she might “pass out.” The injection dripped for “like, five days,” and when she wanted to come back to the surgeon so that she could repair the damage, the surgeon was seemingly in jail because someone supposedly “died on her table.”
In a 2011 interview with Good Morning, America Spelling stated that she would never have touched her breasts “if I had known it would or could possibly impact production of milk.” In 2014 she still wasn’t happy with her surgery, and that was discussed on her reality TV show, True Tori. Daily Mail, who recapped the episode, stated that her breasts were “expired and recalled,” in the third stage of breast thickening and that they “should have been removed 15 years ago.” “If someone had said to me when I was 20 years old, ‘by the way, every 10 to 15 years you’re going to need to get these suckers replaced’ I wouldn’t have done it,” Tori revealed.
“So, I’ve had every part of my face injected,” she shared with People. “The things I’ve decided to stop doing is the filler in the cheekbones, the Botox above the eyebrow and the lips because I just feel like I’m a walking cat-duck. It looks like a cat and a duck had a baby and that’s me.”
In a 2006 interview with Us Weekly, Reid revealed that her surgeon increased the size of her breast implants despite her demand for “big Bs.” An unexpected nip slip in 2004 showed that things were even worse than what it seemed. The doctor had botched her nipple and the following pictures that traveled online “devastated” her. Reid also got some body contouring from the same doctor, which had likewise terrible consequences. “My stomach became the most ripply, bulgy thing,” she shared with Us Weekly. “I had a hernia, this huge bump next to my bellybutton. As a result, I couldn’t wear a bikini. I lost a lot of work.” Reid finally had a corrective operation.
Entertainment Tonight stated how Montag had numerous operations, from “fat injections in her face” and “pinned-back ears” to breast implants and a nose job during a course of 24 hours. Montag confessed to Paper that it was a “rock-bottom moment” in her life. “I died for a minute. With that much surgery, I had to have 24-hour nurse care and Spencer didn’t want to leave my side,” she admitted. “I was at a recovery center and had Demerol to deal with the pain because it was so extreme. My security guards called Spencer and told him, ‘Heidi’s heart stopped. She’s not going to make it.’ And I easily could’ve. Cutting yourself up isn’t something I’d recommend.”
Jennifer Grey is most famous for her role in 1987’s Dirty Dancing. Two years after the movie, she had what she called “the nose job from hell.” Grey shared with The Mirror how she “went into the -operating room a ¬celebrity and came out anonymous.” “I’ll always be this once-famous actress nobody ¬recognizes because of a nose job.” Luckily for her, she became a successful voice actor, and she worked for six years voicing characters on the animated series Phineas and Ferb. She also appeared in the Amazon Prime series Red Oaks.
