Find Michael Jackson plastic surgery before and after photos below as well as the truth about his vitiligo and lupus! In 1979, the King of Pop of Michael Jackson fell down while dancing and broke his nose. Reportedly, Jackson had come to despise the way his nose looked and this led him to try out a number of different things with his nose. In an interview with Oprah Winfrey, he admitted that he would hide his face in the dark. His surgeon’s name is Steven Hoefflin and the outcomes of his operation on Jackson are obvious on his Off the Wall album cover. Read: Michael Jackson’s sister La Toya Jackson Plastic Surgery
J. Randy Taraborrelli, Jackson’s biographer, says that he had his first Rhinoplasty after the 1979 incident. Eventually, Jackson became the most notorious case of celebrity plastic surgery. His first nose job was not effective and caused him difficulties in breathing. So, he went for another Rhinoplasty in 1980. Jackson has admitted that he had inserted a dimple in his chin and was a regular dermal filler injector too. He has, however, said that he has never done anything to alter his eyes. At first, Jackson liked the results of his nose job but became worried when his nose eventually became pointy and inverted, making his face look strange.
Michael Jackson vitiligo
Jackson also suffered from Vitiligo, a rare disease which causes uneven patches of varying colors to appear on the skin. He went to Dr. Arnold Klein to rid himself of that disease, leading to his white skin color. Many had wrongfully stated that he had changed the color of his skin because he was embarrassed of being black. Michael Jackson vitiligo was diagnosed first around 1986. In the year 1990, his vast use of skin bleaches and makeup made his skin paler but one cannot see any Vitiligo marks. One of Michael’s closest friends said that Michael usually wore long-sleeves and high-collars to hide the pigmentation on his arms and neck. However, he could not cover up the ugly patches on his face with clothes or wigs. Consequently, he took the aid of makeup and surgery. A hollow look came over his face in 2009 because fat was being withdrawn from it. “Back in 1993 nobody knew anything vitiligo. He kept getting whiter and whiter and whiter, and nobody understood why. Anybody who knew Michael Jackson will tell you that when you are up close to him—he had absolutely no pigmentation in his skin—you are looking at his veins when you look at his hand. You are seeing through to the blue veins, and they’re very, very apparent. At first that’s a starling thing. Nobody ever talks about that, but it takes you aback at first. You’re looking at a person who is almost translucent.” – Oprah Winfrey
Michael Jackson’s diagnosis of vitiligo
“It is well documented that in 1986, Michael was diagnosed with Vitiligo and Lupus. Vitiligo is a chronic disorder that causes depigmentation of patches of skin. It occurs when melanocytes, the cells responsible for skin pigmentation, die or are unable to function. The cause of vitiligo is unknown, but research suggests that is may arise from autoimmune, genetic, oxidative stress, neural, or viral causes.” – Dr. Patrick Treacy who treated Michael Jackson

Michael Jackson face lift
His face continued to change – it looked as if he had eyeliner tattooed to his lids, his jawline had altered and the color of his lips became much paler to match his whiter skin. He also got his cleft removed. Due to the many facelifts he had undergone, his eyes looked as if they were pulled back and his face’s skin looked stretched. In 2009, Jackson’s face had begun to look thinner due to fat loss. His doctor had injected Restylane injections in his body to build up body tissue temporarily in some areas and to make other areas look smooth. The skin on his nose became so thin (due to extensive steroids) that the gel could be seen underneath the barely-there layer. There was also a visible indentation on the corner of his nose which can be attributed to a skin-cancer biopsy. It looked as if Jackson became obsessed with the idea of repeatedly altering his face and his mania is largely viewed as a negative effect of plastic surgery. The Daily Mirror called him ‘hideously disfigured’ when they printed a huge picture of his face.
Michael Jackson was addicted to plastic surgery
Michael Jackson’s mother Katherine Jackson once revealed: “Michael Was Addicted to Plastic Surgery”
“I felt so bad for him. He’d say, ‘I’m just so ugly, I don’t want to go out there.’ To a mother, all of her children are always beautiful,” “And so one day, he decided, ‘I’m going to get my nose done.'” At the time, Jackson supported her son’s cosmetic surgery wishes, saying she hoped the small physical change would finally put his concerns to rest and make him happy.”
According to plastic surgeons and doctors, Jackson suffered actually suffered from body dysmorphic disorder (BDD), which is a mental disease that loathing of one body part always that no plastic surgery can truly solve.
“Michael viewed his nose like an anorexic views the body,” “No matter how tiny his nose was, it was always too fat. He perceived it as opposite of what we saw.” – Beverly Hills plastic surgeon.
