While celebrities going under the knife is nothing new, some stars still manage to surprise fans. Whether they’ve decided to reverse a procedure, get an upgrade or try something new, here are some of the biggest celebrity plastic surgery shockers to be revealed over the past year:
Although teenage bride Courtney Stodden continually shocked people by posting provocative pictures of herself and appearing to be much older than her actual age, she shocked people when she went under the knife earlier this year. Since first rising to fame by marrying much older actor Doug Hutchinson, Courtney had been adamant that her obvious attributes were all natural. She even went on a television show to prove that she didn’t have plastic surgery. So it came as shock when shortly before her split from Doug she underwent plastic surgery to make her naturally full chest even bigger with breast implants and her full lips even bigger with lip augmentation.
Farrah Abraham turned to plastic surgery fairly quickly when her 15 minutes of fame as a Teen Mom were coming to an end. She got implants soon after the birth of her daughter in order to have a modeling career. Since then, she has become a porn star and shocked fans further when she decided to change her original implants for silicone models just days after meeting the minimal age requirement. She also opted to remove her chin implant, which fans felt was unnecessary.
Heidi Montag has pretty much been leading a quiet life since she initially shocked the world by having ten plastic surgery procedures at once, including a nose job revision, chin reduction, mini brow lift, Botox in forehead and frown area, fat injections in cheeks, nasolabial folds and lips, neck liposuction, ears pinned back, liposuction on waist, hips and inner and outer thighs and buttock augmentation. Heidi came out of the woodwork to announce that she was exchanging her supersized implants for a more comfortable size, shocking people that had forgotten the former reality star still existed.
Angelina Jolie’s favorite pastime is shocking the public, whether she is sporting her lover’s blood in a vial around her neck, smooching her brother on a red carpet or adopting kids from around the world. Her big shock for fans came at the beginning of the year when she announced via an article in the New York Post that she had undergone a voluntary double mastectomy and reconstructive surgery.
Julie Chen has long been suspected of having been under the knife, but no one was entirely certain. Julie shocked fans of her morning chat fest when she openly admitted to having plastic surgery as a way to get ahead in her career. After revealing her decision to have eyelid surgery early in her career, Julie then went on to say that she has never had any other plastic surgery—which some fans found even more shocking. Instead the news anchor relies on makeup artistry to slim her nose and play up her cheekbones.none
