Lisa Rinna’s newly repaired duck lips aren’t healing properly


Back in October of this year, Lisa Rinna finally went in to a plastic surgeon to have her horrible duck lips repaired, after a silicone tragedy befell them many years ago. You see, Lisa used to get hot lead (or whatever) injected into her lips back in the ‘80s. And something happened and the procedure became permanent, and Rinna became known as “that chick with the disgusting lips”. So she had them worked on… only now the cure seems worse than the disease. Prepare yourself, this gets GROSS.

LISA RINNA is trapped in a plastic surgery nightmare – her surgically altered “trout pout” lips won’t heal!

The former Melrose Place star, 47, recently underwent a procedure to remove silicone from her lips that had been implanted back in 1986. But now her recovery hasn’t gone well – and she’s terrified that if she smiles too much her lips might bust open!

“Her doctors told Lisa it’s going to take months longer for her to heal,” a close pal told The ENQUIRER. “Lisa’s trying not to talk or even smile for long for fear of popping open her lips. She told a pal, ‘I look like I’m mad all the time, but I’m just trying to get my lips to heal properly!’”

While lip injections are popular in Hollywood, the procedure can lead to serious complications, Dr. Anthony Youn, a leading cosmetic surgeon told The ENQUIRER.

“Any time you have anything permanent injected into the lips, you are playing Russian roulette with your face,” Dr. Youn divulged. “There are serious risks.”

While Rinna was under the examination table, her doctor warned her: “The tissue is under tension. It’s not coming together.”

According to Dr. Youn, her lips could take up to six months to heal. Her pal said: “The whole thing has been driving Lisa crazy!”

The Enquirer’s print edition has absolutely disgusting photos to go along with the story, which I’m very glad we can’t reprint here. Her mouth basically looks like (AVERT YOUR EYES IF YOU GROSS OUT EASILY) a ripped, bloody anus. It’s disgusting. And unsanitary. I don’t see how she can even function with her mouth like that – how does she eat? How does she brush her teeth? Ugh.

    I’m a fan. She is my favorite Billy from DOOL. I hope they heal up for her.

  2. the original bellaluna says:

    “While Rinna was under the examination table” – LMAO at that one, NE!

  3. kimmm says:

    My curiosity is piqued to see those pictures …

  4. womanfromthenorth says:

    she looks like the joker, what a mess

  5. Bill Hicks is God says:

    “Russian roulette,” a perfect description for plastic surgery. I think the term “plastic” should be junked and the procedure should properly be called what it is: elective reconstructive surgery. Vanity surgery works for me too.

  6. Trish says:

    I feel bad for her. Hope she feels better soon.

  7. Nudgie says:

    “Wait til they get a load of ME….”

  8. di butler says:

    Lisa is a beautiful woman, I hope she heals well. She made a bad decision when she was young, along with the jackass doctor who did it, now she deserves to get past it.

  9. hellen says:

    I feel sorry for her – she should have just left the duck lips as they were, even though they were unnatural-looking. She must be going through hell. No snark from me on this one.

  10. Amelia says:

    If these pictures were post procedure I have to say she looks so much better and it makes me sad that she’s not healing, but GOD she should never have gotten her lips tampered with in the first place. I’m not a big fan, but I feel sorry for her.

  11. guesty says:

    cue countdown to new lip implants…

  12. Apostate says:

    I fear that the once ravishing Lisa Rinna has now joined the ranks of “The Joan Crones” (Rivers and Van Ark),Hunter Tylo,Pete Burns et al. Very sad indeed.

  13. Kiska says:

    I do feel for her. That has got to be very uncomfortable.

  14. skibunny says:

    She’s a beautiful woman. Too bad she has almost ruined her looks. There’s something to be said for aging gracefully.

  15. mimi says:

    she annoys the crap out of me but I do feel bad for her. Ive made some bad choices in the name of vanity too but fortunately nothing like this happened. Im also curious about those pics but not enough to buy the magazine.
    At least she has great hair tho, love her cut in that top pic.

  16. Jazmin says:

    This is old news. She talked about it on her reality show, and uses it as added drama for said show.

  17. Crash2GO2 says:

    Poor thing. The silicone migrates around into the surrounding tissues, so basically they just went in and removed what they could see and probably some scar tissue. The remaining scar tissue and silicone could be preventing her normal tissue from being in contact at the stitch area. I can definitely see how that would slow or even prevent healing. The poor thing might be headed for more surgery. :(

  18. JenJen says:

    I guess she wasn’t planning on having teenagers when she got her BJ lips. Poor kids. When is Harry having his removed?

  19. tj says:

    step away from the needles, lisa. her injectable work is just horrible.

  21. The Bobster says:

    I hope today’s actresses learned something form her tragedy but I doubt it.

  22. Tiffany says:

    Good God! These women and their fillers and plumpers, it looks so obvious and horrid and makes you look OLD. They come into the Dr. in LA and the OC and look hideous. I keep thinking to myself, you think this makes you look young? Ew.
    I am 41 and have never had a thing done and won’t. I deserve and earned every damn wrinkle, smile line and stretch mark.
    And I still get taken for 10-15 years younger all the time. Don’t put crap in your face or deform your body. My mom had a bunch of stuff done, I hate it and all she has had have been complications and this from a very good Vanity Dr.
    Maybe I am just grumpy from arriving in London the day before Christmas when I know there is a feast at home in LA with my name on it and some shorts and flip flops to go with.
    Ahhhh, living abroad in the business, not as fun as it would seem. Been gone a year now with hubby working and kids in tow. Amsterdam was more fun! I am on the lookout for celeb sightings while here, maybe get some dirt to share from my connections:)

  23. Kath says:

    I can’t feel bad for her. She’s had a bunch of surgery (and I do think it’s more than just her lips) in order to better conform to a nearly unobtainable standard of beauty. She was on tv, as one of the people promoting this standard. It bit her in the ass. No pity from me.

  24. kelly says:

    I wonder what she looked like before all the shit happened to her face? Like, originally.
    Anyone have pics?

  25. Hakura says:

    @kelly (#25) – These are a few good pictures of what she used to look like:

    I truly feel bad for her. She was really beautiful before. I don’t think *anyone* should be snarky about the situation she’s in now. Yes, she did make a very bad decision, but I think she’s been punished more than enough. =(

    This really makes me wonder how many of these celebrities have ‘body dismorphic disorder’… It’s the only thing I can think of that would make them look in the mirror, like Lindsay Lohan, and think it looks *good*, even though it looks like two slugs glued to her face.

    I’d never have this done. I don’t have a problem with elective cosmetic surgery, I think in some cases it can be a wonderful thing, but it all completely depends on someone’s individual circumstances. Nothing is right for everyone. But this lip thing never seems to turn out positively.

  26. BellaB says:

    I’m proud to say that I have never seen “a ripped, bloody anus.” I imagined far worse than what I saw on the enquirer website.

  27. Hakura says:

    @BellaB (#28)- “I’m proud to say that I have never seen “a ripped, bloody anus.”

    Nor have I (thank God). One has to wonder how Kaiser came across a reference for that comparison. >.>

    Just kidding, Kaiser. xD You know we love you. xD

  28. Whatever says:

    She made “a” bad decision? She looks totally jacked to me and like she has had more than one dose of silicone and then had it removed. Her face bears little resemblance to her Days of our Lives days and its getting hard to even look at her, like Joan Rivers. These HW women need to realize that they only look worse when they do injections and other procedures. They almost never look better.

  29. crtb says:

    Shw was a beuatiful woman with a beautiful mouth, why would she think that she need to put silicone into her lips? Does the stuff make you give a better bl0w J0b?

  30. lisa says:

    I thought the pictures would be worst. I guess my imagination is more vivid.. But I feel sorry for anyone that has to suffer after surgery.

    But regarding all the fillers and botox. That crap catches up with you.. Have any of you seen Susanne Somers lately or Joan Van Ark.. OMG.. talk about train wrecks. I don’t know. My Grandmother is 90.. my Mom almost surgery nothing. aging like nature meant for them. Sill married to the men that fell in love with them. So. This is what I am going for. I could regret it, but I much prefer to let my life be more then not having lines on my face. A happy spirit shines through and keeps you forever beautiful. Corny but that’s what I’m going for.

  31. Solveig says:

    She should ask Pete Burns the telephone number of the surgeon who fixed his lips. It seems that he (the surgeon) made a miracle in Pete’s case. And it was a tragic case.

  32. Deeana says:

    As a nurse, unfortunately I’ve actually seen a ripped, bloody anus or two. And that usually happens from putting something where it doesn’t belong….

    Her lips don’t look all that bad to me.

  33. The Hamm is My Dream Man says:

    Poor thing.
