15 Plastic Surgery Fails
Nowadays plastic surgery is mostly the domain of rich and vain types. But it’s not always been that way. Weirdly enough, reconstructive surgery dates all the way back to India in 800BC. And ever since then it’s been used by people. Mostly for understandable reasons. For instance, the Romans often patched up noses and ears damaged in battle or in fights. But nowadays? It’s all lips, breasts and facelifts. Fair enough, we say. If that’s makes you happy. But these procedures come with risks. Things can go wrong. Badly wrong. You’ve only got to glance at any one of these following fifteen people to realize that. So check them out. And think twice before going under the knife…
Valeria Lukyanova is a real life Barbie. She’s spent her entire young life trying to look like a doll. With quite a lot of success, as it happens. And Justin Jedlica’s done pretty much the same. Except his idol is the male version of Barbie, Ken. So it’s a match made in heaven, right? When the two plastic surgery obsessives met they must’ve fallen head over heels in love, right? Well, wrong. When the Ukrainian model met New York-based Ken, the two instantly hated each other. Shame.
US Navy veteran Dennis Avner was world famous, featuring in numerous newspaper and magazine articles, on websites and on TV programmes. You’ll probably recognize his rather unusual face. He underwent fourteen different surgical procedures to look more and more like a tiger. But his quest was not without its downsides. His mental health suffered – as you might imagine. He could never truly be a tiger and that fact depressed Avner greatly. Sadly, in 2012, he took his own life. He was 54.
Amanda LePore is a transsexual model and socialite who’s had full gender realignment surgery. But, obviously, that’s not why we’ve featured her on our list. It was the fact that she just couldn’t stop with the surgeries… After getting all her ‘pants’ stuff sorted, she just kept going back to her plastic surgeon time and time again. She looked very feminine when she first had her surgery done. Now? She looks a little bit more like a cartoon. Huge plastic surgery fail.
Jocelyn Wilderstein – When this spoiled socialite divorced her French billionaire businessman husband Alec N. Wilderstein, she received an incredible $2.5 billion in the settlement. Oh, and $100 million each year for thirteen years after. But by this time she’d had so many surgeries that the divorce court forbade to spend her money on any more procedures. She still makes her way onto this list though. And easily. She’d spent $4m on operations!
The French model known as “the woman with the largest breasts in the world”, Lola Ferrari was tragically killed in 2000 at just 37 years of age. She was a softcore adult actress as well as a cult icon in Europe, especially in the UK for her appearances on late night TV show Eurotrash. Ferrari had 22 breast enlargement procedures in her time, a world record which still stands. Her size, by the time of her death, was said to be 54J.
Weirdo prop comedian type Carrot Top has, quite obviously, had more surgeries on his face than you’ve had hot dinners. But he won’t ever admit it. Which is ridiculous. He couldn’t be more different from when he started. “People think I’ve had plastic surgery – no, it just takes a lot of makeup to make me look good.” Make up that’s presumably been applied by a doctor. Under anesthetic. With a knife.
Tattoos and piercings are fine. Have a few. Heck – have a load. It’s fine. You want to be unique, that’s cool. But to go this far? Well, it’s quite something, isn’t it? We hope she likes her extreme look, but with surgery-based body modifications – it’s a fail from us, we’re afraid. Still, we’re sure she probably doesn’t care all that much. She doesn’t strike us as the sort of lady to care too much what other people think. And just as well.
Now we all know how much Michael Jackson enjoyed the odd nip and tuck, don’t we? The man underwent many, many surgeries. But it seemingly runs in the family. Here’s his sister LaToya Jackson. If you thought that Janet liked a little work done, just check out LaToya’s work. She had A LOT of work done. So much in fact that she almost looks like her late brother, The King of Pop…
Donatella Versace is the brother of Versace kingpin Gianni Versace. She’s now Vice President of the company that is obsessed with the idea of looking good. So it’s a little odd that she might go so far out of her way to look so damn terrible then, isn’t it? She was quite pretty back in the day, believe it or not. Not that you’d be able to tell now, of course.
Sylvester Stallone isn’t the most normal-looking man in the world, is he? With his upturned lip and face like a baked ham. But we can soon see where he gets it from when we look at his mom. We can see the genetic similarities. She retained a few. But the rest of her face? It’s all made up of plastic. Jackie Stallone is one slightly strange-looking lady, isn’t she? And it’s all down to plastic surgeons. Drunk plastic surgeons.
How do you like these apples? And they do look like apples, don’t they? But they’re not. They’re really not. Believe it or not, they’re actually lips. Can you take that on board? This woman has the largest lips in the world. That’s not all that surprising, is it? We thought that Tom Hardy held that record, but no. It’s this lady. How strange. She’s otherwise a very pretty girl, isn’t she? Ramping up the fail…
Hang Mioku was a young and attractive Korean model. Who wanted ‘softer skin’. So she decided to inject herself with cooking oil. And ended up looking like the lady on the left. It took ten operations to suck all the goo out of her face and make her look normal again. So if you thought that doctor’s surgeries were bad enough, it’s clear that self-inflicted plastic surgery fails can be a whole lot worse…
You remember the old eighties track, ‘You Spin Me Right Round’ by Dead or Alive? The lead singer is a dude called Pete Burns. That’s him up there. He’s an odd-looking fella, we’re sure you’d agree. Obsessed with plumping his lips and lifting his face, he’s had a million surgeries in his time. So renowned for his bad plastic surgery fails is he in his homeland of the UK that he even had a TV special over there entitled Pete Burns’ Cosmetic Surgery Nightmares.
Los Angeles resident Toby Sheldon has spent more than $100,000 on looking like Justin Bieber. And boy has it worked! Well, if you squint a bit. Maybe. A bit… ‘Once Justin shot to fame his face was everywhere and all I kept thinking when I saw his picture was, “I want to look like him.”‘ Sheldon told one of the million documentary crews that have made films about him. Ay, ay, ay. What a fail!
We’ve already seen the woman with the world’s biggest lips. Well, now let’s look at the woman with the world’s most blown-up lips, shall we? This is what happens when you get one too many lip fillers from a dodgy plastic surgeon. They EXPLODE. Well, sometimes they explode. Just ask this poor lady…
