1. Tara Reid
Actor Tara Reid underwent several botched surgeries in 2004, forcing her to reverse the work in 2007. “My stomach became the most ripply, bulgy thing,” Tara told UsWeekly. “I had a hernia, this huge bump next to my belly button. As a result, I couldn’t wear a bikini. I lost a lot of work.”
2. Courteney Cox
Courteney Cox has spoken a few times about regretting getting some cosmetic work done, recently telling The Sunday Times, “I didn’t realize that, oh shit, I’m actually looking really strange with injections and doing stuff to my face that I would never do now.”
3. Jessica Simpson
Jessica Simpson told Glamour in 2006 that she hated her lip injections. “I had that Restylane stuff,” she said. “It looked fake to me. I didn’t like that. But…it went away in, like, four months. My lips are back to what they were. Thank God!”
4. Melissa Gilbert
Little House on the Prairie’s Melissa Gilbert opened up to People in May 2022 about her past cosmetic enhancements.
“I finally woke up and went, ‘What am I doing? I look like a carrot top, and I’m not happy,'” she said. “My mindset was, ‘You have to stay thin. You have to be seen in the right places, wear the right shoes and drive the right car.’ That was so drilled into me by all the outside forces. But it never sat right … I cut off all my hair and quit doing Botox and all that stuff.”
5. Cameron Diaz
Cameron Diaz tried Botox once but said she would never do that again. “It changed my face in such a weird way that I was like, ‘No, I don’t want to [be] like [that]’… I’d rather see my face aging than a face that doesn’t belong to me at all,” Diaz told Entertainment Tonight in 2014.
6. Katie Price
Surgery queen Katie, 43, estimates she’s had 24 boob jobs, three facelifts, and lipo sessions.
She traveled to Turkey for a body overhaul, including full-body liposuction, eye and lip lifts, liposuction under her chin, and fat injected into her bum.
Last year, she told The Sun: “Honestly, I’ve gone to Hell and back, it was horrific — ‘Oh my God I look like a monster out of a horror movie’.
“I’ve woken up with holes and stitches all over my body. I look like I’ve got cat’s whiskers coming out of my nose and eyes.
“But I just want the old Katie back!”
7. Jennifer Grey
After her role in Dirty Dancing, Jennifer Grey famously went under the knife for a nose job. The surgery, Jennifer said, affected her ability to get jobs. “I went into the operating room a celebrity and came out anonymous,” she told The Mirror in 2012. “It was the nose job from hell. I’ll always be this once-famous actress nobody recognizes because of a nose job.”
8. Simon Cowell
The America’s Got Talent judge revealed he used to get Botox and other facial injections and didn’t realize how bad it looked until seeing a photo from his past. “There was a stage where I might have gone a bit too far. I saw a picture of me from ‘before’ the other day, and didn’t recognize it as me first of all,” he told The Sun on April 9, 2022, admitting the anti-aging treatments made him look “like something out a horror film.”
Cowell added that the unrecognizable face sent his 8-year-old son Eric into “hysterics,” but for him, it was a turning point. “Enough was enough,” he announced.
9. Bella Hadid
The supermodel finally admitted in a March 2022 interview with Vogue that she got a nose job at the age of 14. She now regrets having the work done.
“I wish I had kept the nose of my ancestors,” Bella told the publication, adding, “I think I would have grown into it.” Her father, Mohamed, is Jordanian American, while her mother, Yolanda, is Dutch-American.
10. Britney Spears
Britney Spears recently said on her Instagram that she was considering getting Botox again, but had hesitations. “The last time I did it my eyebrow was raised like the funny girl in the movie Just Go With It! Sounds funny but it actually wasn’t,” she wrote.
11. Tori Spelling
In a 2011 interview with Good Morning America, Tori Spelling said she regretted getting her breast implants. “Well I got my boobs done in my early 20s and if I had known it would or could possibly impact production of milk, I would never had them done,” said the Beverly Hills 90201 star and mother of five.
12. Malanie Griffith
Melanie Griffith didn’t know how addicted she had become to plastic surgery until “people started saying, ‘Oh my God, what has she done?!’” she said. “I was so hurt I went to a different doctor and he started dissolving all of this shit that this other woman doctor had put in. Hopefully, I look more normal now.”
13. Heather Morris
Glee star and dancer Heather Morris grew out of her breast implants, saying it was something she wanted when she was younger. “[They] were something I thought I wanted when I was younger, and now I don’t,” she told Fitness magazine in 2011. “It was hard being active with them because my chest was always sore. It hurt a lot, and I didn’t like always being in pain, so they had to go!”
14. Heidi Montag
In a TikTok last year, Heidi Montag said that she “sometimes” regrets having had plastic surgery. Speaking in 2019 about having had 10 procedures in one day when she was 23, she added, “I was way too young to make such a life-changing decision…I wish I had waited and not made a decision so young because I have long-term health complications.”
15. Crystal Hefner
The former Playboy model and Hugh Hefner’s widow celebrated getting “everything fake” removed from her body in a January 11, 2022, Instagram post.
“I removed everything fake from my body and deleted all my old photos,” she wrote about the “scantily clad” snapshots that used to fill her page, adding, “I am more authentic, vulnerable and feel that I belong more to myself. I am mine.” Crystal had her breast implants removed in 2016 but underwent the knife in 2020, where the reality starlet said she “almost didn’t make it through” a “fat transfer surgery” that caused her to lose half the blood in her body.
