It’s really refreshing to hear about high-profile people coming forward and being honest about surgical/cosmetic work that they’ve had done. Of course, it’s even better (for me, at least) when they speak about negative side effects or feelings they are faced with after. Not that I like people to regret these decisions (it’s horrible to regret anything), but I do believe that it helps people who are listening to think twice about making these decisions and to be thankful for what they have naturally. So, here are a few stars who have either reversed or regretted the work they’ve had done:
Heather Morris Heather told Fitness magazine that she had breast implants — not that she wore really good bras, like she previously claimed — and had them removed because they were painful. “Implants were something I thought I wanted when I was younger, and now I don’t,” she said. “It was hard being active with them, because my chest was always sore. It hurt a lot, and I didn’t like being in pain, so they had to go!”
Denise Richards told Us Weekly that she has been on a three surgery ordeal to get the breast size she originally wanted. “When I was 19, a doctor put in bigger implants than what I asked for. I was in such a hurry to get them that I didn’t research my doctor. I just thought because they’re a plastic surgeon, they must be good.” Unfortunately, after a corrective surgery, she ended up with even more up top. “I felt very vulnerable. It wasn’t right what the doctor did, but it is what it is.” Years later, she is finally happy after having yet another corrective surgery.
Tori is admitting that her boob job is a little funky. She says that if she had it all to do over again, she might skip the implants. In fact, she said this is her biggest regret. “Well I got my boobs done … in my early 20s,” she said. “If I had known that it would or could possibly impact production of milk, I wouldn’t have had them. I love being a mom. I’m on my third baby. We want to have more. That’s my role. [The boobs] don’t matter.”
For months after Heidi Montag debuted her 3.0 self, she put on the front that she was thrilled with the results. But once her plastic surgeon, Dr. Frank Ryan, died in a car crash, her tune changed. First, she said she was getting her breast implants removed because, “I can’t live an everyday life. I feel trapped in my own body.” Soon, she said, “I don’t want my face to fall off like Michael Jackson’s.” Finally, she admitted that her plastic surgery obsession killed her marriage. “Spencer begged me not to get the first surgery and it almost broke up our relationship,” she said. “Then he begged me not to get the second one and it did break our relationship. It was just so much pressure. No one wants to be taking care of his wife—who looks like she was in a horrific accident—24 hours a day, when he begged her not to do it in the first place. Spencer didn’t sign up for this in our marriage.”
Jamie Lee Curtis
Jamie Lee Curtis has been very open about regretting her plastic surgery. “It was a nightmare. It made me much, much more insecure. There were some complications and I had a horrible experience. I’ll never do that again. Plastic surgery doesn’t work. Show me one person who’s had it done who doesn’t look weird,” she’s said. She also claims that she got hooked on prescription painkillers after plastic surgery. She said, “I attempted various types of plastic surgery. But every time something went wrong. I felt misshapen, just not natural any more. And I think it was a big stimulator of my abuse.” For a more expansive list of stars who regret plastic surgery, click here.
