Plastic surgery is one of my “in case of emergency” things, should my features decide to drastically rebel without informing me. For now, make up and Spanx has me covered. Maybe in 30 years or so I will look into much greater measures to preserve my youth. Plastic surgery has definitely made waves— especially in Hollywood. There’s been some amazing work done on celebs and regular people, and I’ve taken good note of that. However, there’s also been some not-so-amazing work done that has made me more cautious about the idea of plastic surgery, and more aware of the importance of having a good surgeon. I don’t want my face to melt because I went to a fly by night doctor— that’s scary.
Don’t get excited just because a “doctor” is giving you a good deal on a few nips and tucks. If it’s cheaper than the average price and the doctor is running his clinic from a dark back alley in the bad part of town—you better run! These are the people that will most likely sell your organs to the black market if they get the opportunity. Trust me, you don’t want to be known as the person with a melted face and a missing kidney.
Here are some horrific examples of why you should take the time to find a good doctor before going under the knife. I still have a few years to think about any work that I’d like to get done, but that’s only if I fail to age gracefully.
#15 – Nikki Cox
Now, this doesn’t look too bad compared to the others on the list. However, if you compare the before and after photos of actress Nikki Cox (best known for her role on “Unhappily Ever After”), you’ll notice a big difference. From looking like a hot supermodel to looking like, well, a mannequin, she definitely chose the wrong doctor to work on her face. This is why getting Botox is a tricky procedure to undergo. It’s a pass or fail kind of thing.
In her after photo, Nikki seems to be having a hard time smiling for the cameras. That’s a clear sign of Botox, because you have no proper control of your facial muscles (they’re just stiff.) The skin on and around Nikki’s lips seem to be getting taut from the fillers. With such unkissable lips, lets hope Nikki still gets her happily ever after.
#14 – Daryl Hannah
Daryl Hannah was one of the most gorgeous women from the 80?s. I’ve admired her so much because of her talents and advocacies. As we grow older, our bodies fail to inform us when they’re planning on changing some things— it’s like renting an apartment, then suddenly getting an eviction notice. So, some women opt to get work done.
In Daryl’s case, things didn’t go so well— she looks even older. If we can’t trust our doctors, who can we trust? Now, Daryl never did confirm that she had any work done, but her before and after photos say otherwise. Her beauty was very unique by Hollywood standards because despite being the typical blonde, her looks still had an exotic touch. Daryl seems to have had some lip injections, Botox, cheek implants, and some face lifting—evidently, from a horrible plastic surgeon.
