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

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.

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.

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.

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.
