It’s an obsession which has taken the world by storm, plastic surgery. Over 15 million people worldwide had plastic surgery, with over 0.65 million of them being South Koreans! Britain had over 0.21 million with the popular surgery being breast enlargement or liposuction. But does it always work? Definitely not, take a look at these disasters, you will be shocked.
One of the most famous cases of disastrous plastic surgery was that of a currently 47 year old woman from South Korea, Hang Mioku, who became so addicted to plastic surgery that she was left almost unrecognizable after her obsession led her to inject cooking oil into her face. She started having plastic surgery when she was 28, then she continuously had operation after operation until the surgeons refused to do any more work on her face and suggested her addiction was a sign of a psychological disorder. So Hang resorted to injecting domestic cooking oil into her face where it became so large that she was called a standing fan by children in her neighbour because of her large face and such small body.
Known by the press ‘The Bride of Wildenstein’ Jocelyn Wildenstein has allegedly spent over four million dollars on cosmetic surgery over the years and is one of the most famous cases of plastic surgery addiction. Jocelyn was freshed faced mother of two and married an extremely wealthy art dealer, that was until she caught her husband in bed with a 21 year old Russian model. Now, instead of divorcing him and taking off with all his money, she decided to go under the knife to make herself look more beautiful to win her husband back. Unfortunately, her husband left her anyways and Jocelyn couldn’t stop her addiction. She has also been known to be called ‘Cat Woman’ due to her taut, cat like appearance.
Dolly Parton, now she isn’t one to hide the fact that shes had surgery. Dolly is one of the most popular country singers of all time, as well as being a songwriter and actress. But with big success comes a big pressure to look good! Ms Parton isn’t ashamed too admit shes been under the knife a few times and shes comfortable talking about it publicly. Dolly has had numerous face lifts, brow lifts, chin implants, lip fillers, fat grafting, liposuction and not to mention those huge breast enlargements! There is no doubt that all of Dolly’s surgery rumours are true and she’s not afraid to admit it and she’ll gladly answer any questions about them!
Michael Jackson only ever admitted to two surgical procedures whilst he was alive, but after his death his mother Katherine said ‘He’d had more than two, he was just embarrassed.’ Jackson was addicted to plastic surgery, it was no mystery. It’s blatant that he’s had a lot of work, his skin colour, his nose and his chin?
Former band member of ‘Dead or Alive’ Pete Burns, has to be one of the most famous examples of plastic surgery disasters! Pete’s addiction to surgery has became notorious over the years and the singer is barely recognizable! Pete who is now 51, has been trying to fix his face ever since a bad lip implant went badly wrong and left the singer suicidal and has won a pay out of £450,000 from cosmetic surgeon Dr Maurizio Viel. The singer has had nearly all procedures going, nose jobs, cheek implants and non-surgical treatments like botox which he is regularly using.
Plastic Surgery in my eyes is a big no no! To be honest, there have been surgeries that have gone well and do look good. But the majority look horrendous and celebs just end up spending thousands to fix it and end up looking even worse. Let yourself age gracefully! You can’t beat it!
