Desperate to find love following the death of her beloved hubby, aging songbird Celine Dion has undergone extreme facial fixes that pals and a medical expert say have backfired badly — leaving her looking "terrible" and like a totally different person. Click through RadarOnline.com's gallery to find out more.
The 50-year-old star underwent the makeovers in an attempt to turn a new page in her life since her hubby of 21 years, manager Rene Angelil, died of cancer in 2016 at 73. "She totally lost her looks and is unrecognizable," said a source. "The word is she went under the knife to try and give herself a fresh start. But whatever she's done, it clearly hasn't turned out very well!"
Boston plastic surgeon Dr. Dave David noted the changes are so drastic, he "wouldn't recognize her" if he saw her. "She looks terrible, haggard and homely," said the doc, who hasn't treated the songstress.
David believes she's had a nose job, fillers in her cheeks and under the eyes, Botox in the upper lip, and had her eyebrows thinned and lightened. "She got rid of the gummy smile; her teeth look better," he said. "The shape of her eyebrow looks like there was Botox there. Before, she had a fat, rounded face, now she has a chiseled chin. She looks like a completely different person."
Last year, Dion admitted she was open to facial fixes, saying: "I'm still looking through the magazines to find the miracle things I can inject in myself," but her reps are insisting she hasn't had new dental work, a nose job or Botox — and looks the same as always!
But the insider noted, "Getting cosmetic procedures were a way to make her feel more youthful and confident so she can start over. It's really sad because it's backfired and ended in total disaster. She must be terrified she'll never find love again."
