Heidi Montag follows a long line of celebrities who inexplicably gravitate towards the allure of the scalpel. From Cher to Mickey Rourke to Tara Reid, RadarOnline.com has compiled the most notable plastic surgery offenders:
In 1965, Cher was a baby-faced, raven-haired beauty. While she still has her long locks and can still work a red carpet, the icon sometimes eerily resembles a mannequin.
In 1990, Donatella Versace was a bronzed, Italian socialite. Now, despite the youth-inspired platinum blonde locks, her oversized lips and taut face epitomize the big critique of the fashion world: that it’s all fake.
Jennifer Grey was a superstar in the 1980’s thanks to Dirty Dancing. But once she got work done on her nose, her career took a nosedive.
Melanie Griffith was a fresh-faced blonde beauty until she did a little too many things to try and “freshen up.” Now, the actress looks like an inflated (hello, lips) and haggard version of her old self.
Lil’ Kim always had a great smile but after going under the knife, her protruding cheekbones can be downright distracting.
Perhaps the most infamous plastic surgery offender, Michael Jackson took “getting work done” to a whole new level, often shocking the world in the process.
Pamela Anderson has always been smokin’ but sometimes bigger really isn’t better. The Baywatch babe’s oversized breast implants crossed all lines of taste.
Tara Reid has gone through many ups and downs in regards to plastic surgery, having had to undergo more surgery after a procedure was botched and left her breasts and stomach uneven.
Mickey Rourke was one of the sexiest men alive until he “went to the wrong guy” to try and fix his face after some disfigurement from boxing.
Tori Spelling started early, getting a nose job while she was still teenager- which is too bad since she would still have been a 90210 hottie without it!
