Some celebrities are pretty happy with their results when they get plastic surgery. But unfortunately, that’s not the case for stars like Kim Kardashian and Tara Reid, because they have to deal with major complications or procedures that just didn’t turn out to their liking.
With more permanent surgeries, there’s sadly no going back in most cases. Actress Jennifer Grey became a world-famous movie star thanks to late 1980s hits like Dirty Dancing and Ferris Bueller’s Day Off. But after a nose job in the early 1990s, she literally became unrecognizable to audiences, and the plastic surgery derailed her red-hot acting career.
“I went into the operating room a celebrity and came out anonymous. It was the nose job from hell. I’ll always be this once-famous actress nobody recognizes because of a nose job,” Jennifer revealed to the U.K’s The Mirror in 2012.
Fortunately for some stars, they were able to reverse cosmetic enhancements where they were unhappy with the results. Jessica Simpson revealed to Glamour magazine in 2006 that she had lip injections, but that the fillers made her look “fake.”
“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!”
“Well, what would end up happening is that you go to a doctor who would say, ‘You look great,’ but what would help is a little injection here or filler there. So you walk out and you don’t look so bad and you think, no one noticed — it’s good,” the Friends star explained. “Then somebody tells you about another doctor: ‘This person’s amazing. They [did] this person who looks so natural.’ You meet them and they say, ‘You should just do this.’”
“The next thing you know, you’re layered and layered and layered. You have no idea because it’s gradual until you go, ‘Oh s–t, this doesn’t look right,’” Courteney recalled. She said that she finally had her fillers dissolved after a friend looked at her and said “Whoa, no more!” The Scream star added, “I feel better because I look like myself. I think that I now look more like the person that I was. I hope I do.”
