Many celebrities undergo plastic surgery in an attempt to preserve the youth and beauty that helped turn them into a household name. A few stars choose to grow old gracefully and rely on their talent to keep them relevant once their looks have faded.
Others choose to desperately hang on to what’s left of their former selves by undergoing numerous cosmetic procedures that usually leave them looking far worse than if they had aged naturally. The following 11 celebrities have become cautionary tales on the dangers of plastic surgery addiction.
1. Heidi Montag
She had multiple breast augmentations, a brow lift, a nose job, liposuction on various parts of her body, and even implants in her buttocks.
She hit the headlines after admitting to undergoing a staggering 10 plastic surgery procedures at the same time.
Heidi is the prettier half of the celebrity couple known as “Speidi” who will stop at nothing to keep their names in the media.
However, Heidi’s husband Spencer Pratt is well-known for throwing epic tantrums when things don’t go his way and was responsible for getting the pair fired from “The Hills” after threatening the life of a producer.
The couple have appeared on various reality shows including “Celebrity Big Brother” and “I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here!” and were the subjects of two separate documentaries in 2013. Heidi also made many ill-fated attempts at launching a singing career but ended up losing a large portion of her wealth after failing to recoup the recording costs through sales.
In recent interviews, Heidi has expressed her regret at the amount of surgeries she underwent in her youth as they have resulted in major health problems for the reality star. Heidi recently underwent another breast augmentation surgery to reduce her chest to a D-cup from a whopping F-cup after suffering severe back pains.
