Hollywood places a lot of pressure on its stars and they try desperately to remain relevant in the industry and secure acting roles, which are heavily dependent on their looks.
The usual mantra is that ‘It’s a young man’s game’, forcing a large number celebrities to go under the surgical knife more often than they may desire. Here are four celebrities before and after plastic surgery stories that might fascinate you.
1. Sylvester Stallone
Looking at pictures of “Sly” Sylvester Stallone from his “Rambo” and “Rocky” days right down to his “Expendables” movie franchise.
You can see slight modifications to his facial features, now I use the word ‘slight’, because while he still looks like the older version of the Sly we all know and love, there are still some nagging questions that one cannot help but ask after looking at his old and recent pictures.
It seems like Sly had a forehead lift done in order to eliminate stress lines and wrinkles. Some may argue that he has a great dietary and exercise routine, while this may be true and admittedly it helps to slow down the ageing process, it still doesn’t explain why he has a bottom-smooth forehead with no stretch and stress lines to speak of, curious huh!
2. Meg Ryan
When you look at some celebrities before and after plastic surgery pictures, you wonder why they had the surgeries done in the first place.
Take for example Meg Ryan, she looked more beautiful than she does today, even with her obvious Gore-Tex lip implant, neck and forehead lift, lip muscle enhancement, Botox and cheek fat grafting surgeries.
3. Donatella Versace
A stuff of nightmares! That is what comes to mind the moment you see the heiress of the Versace designer fashion empire. Talk about ridiculous celebrities before and after plastic surgery pictures, Donatella doesn’t even require any telling, as her face serves as a perfect example of why too much of something isn’t good for you.
She has had numerous lip implants, neck and forehead lifts, Botox, cheek fat grafting, lip muscle enhancements to name a few. Her face is an encyclopedia for surgical procedures; unfortunately, for her, it has only worsened her once gorgeous looks.
4. Mickey Rourke
From “Angel Heart” to “Sin City” and then to “Expendables”, Mickey Rourke’s face tells a story of systematic abuse, he has had numerous surgeries from lip enhancements, to forehead and nose job.
Mickey Rourke would be the first person to tell you that his love for boxing had left him scarred and in urgent need of cosmetic surgery to save his acting career, but I for one think it’s sadly beyond that. Here’s to you Mickey!
