Celebrity plastic surgery before and after

SkyShowbiz had this gallery of celebrity before and after pictures and it struck me how much some of their faces had changed. No one can blame celebrities for getting plastic surgery and I’m not bashing them for making that choice. Plastic surgery is a cultural phenomenon influenced by a perfectionist society obsessed with beauty. (Yes that’s not big news and this reads like a high school essay.) It’s also something that you might consider if all your friends and colleagues were doing it. My mom had a face lift mainly because her best friend had one. A friend of mine who lives in California had a nose job, and I didn’t think she needed one, but all her friends had work done and it seemed perfectly normal to her.

I’m not a person who is going to age gracefully and I plan on getting a facelift in 20 to 30 years. Maybe there will be less cutting involved at that point.

You can access the galleries through the images below. In some cases the celebrities have admitted to having work done. I just eyeballed the pictures and made judgment calls. If you have more information or a different opinion about a particular celebrity please comment with it. I don’t think I’m right in every case and am open to other opinions.

It’s telling how most of the “natural” celebrities in the gallery are men.

    Hmmm … other than getting their eyebrows plucked, I see no difference in any of the above people!

  2. Celebitchy says:

    There are several galleries full of pictures. Just click on the images to access them.

    Angelina Jolies does NOT look like Angelina Jolie.

    Angelina Jolie was 13 or 14 on this photo. Obviously, she looks different now. The only thing that looks slightly suspicious to me is the nose. Speaking of noses, I can’t believe Jennifer Aniston has hers done. It looks equally awful now as it did then. Nicole Kidman always denies PS. I think she had everything but the nose done.

    I don’t think Teri Hatcher looks different except she has better hair and her eyebrows plucked. I agree, Jen’s nose has always looked that weird. I don’t think that rachel weiz had a nose job, it’s just the photo.
    Liz Hurly had her lips done big time, they all enchance their lips now.

  6. Action says:

    I miss Nicole Kidman’s curly hair. I think it looked GREAT on her. This straight, blonde thing just makes her look cold and unapproachable (and really exasperates her already large forehead).

  7. Whatever says:

    maybe they all had some work done, but i don’t think these pictures are convincing, they are either with different angles, different facial expressions, or huge age gap, lighting and shadows, etc…

    like the one of Jolie, she was a teen, probably 13 or 14, or course she looked different, if you are gonna to compare, find 2 proper pictures!!!
