Nearly every celebrity all over the world has spent numerous amounts on plastic surgery – be it Michael Jackson or the $4 million giant Jocelyn Wildenstein. Unfortunately, their attempt to beautify their faces failed drastically. Here are the top ten awful plastic surgery attempts gone off beam.
1) Hang Mioku awful plastic surgery
Meet Hang Mioku; the plastic surgery fanatic from Korea – the woman who inserted cooking oil into her face.
Mioku is perhaps the saddest case of plastic surgery gone wrong. The forty-eight year old model shifted to Japan from South Korea after she became addicted to cosmetic surgery. Her own family could not recognize her after her obsession became a mania and she self-injected cooking oil into her face. Mioku got her first face surgery at the age of twenty-eight and after years of numerous cosmetic surgeries, her face became enormously mutilated. Consequently, her doctors refused to carry out any further procedures on her and told her to go to a psychiatrist to treat her obsession with cosmetic surgery. Feeling helpless, she self-inserted cooking oil into her face, instantly becoming the joke of her neighbourhood. The kids in her society teased her with names like “standing fan” as her huge face did not align with her smaller body.
Eventually, Mioku became popular on the media and her story was broadcasted on Korean TV. The viewers were moved by her account and donations were made that allowed her to get reconstructive surgery. Doctors took out 60g of alien material from her face and 200g more from her neck. There were many other sessions after which her face did improve but was still left largely scarred and blemished.
2) Jocelyn Wildenstein awful plastic surgery: the $4 million giant.
A famous New York socialite, Jocelyn Wildenstein has spent nearly $4 million on plastic surgery. Her face has become so disfigured, that the media now calls her “The Bride of Wildenstein” (inspired from The Bride of Frankenstein). The story behind her addiction is even more bizarre.
Jocelyn had married a very well-off art dealer. She was living a luxurious life and was a pretty mother of two. One day, however, her life turned around completely when she caught her husband sleeping with a young model from Russia. A normal woman would have simply left her husband, gaining millions in divorce settlements but Jocelyn is not a normal woman. Conversely, she decided to win her husband back and took to plastic surgery. She and her partner separated anyway but Jocelyn successfully spent millions on cosmetic procedures.

3) The legendary pop star with over ten nose jobs – Michael Jackson awful plastic surgery
The man is perhaps the most notorious case of screwed up plastic surgery. The dead need to be respected and there is no doubt that Jackson always will be the King of Pop. However, when it comes to plastic surgery, it is hard to put out the image of the sweet kid from Jackson 5 or the attractive male from the famous Thriller video. Then, Jackson decided to go under the knife and alter his face – several times over. The results, as everyone acknowledges, were horrific.

4) Former Dead or Alive lead singer Pete Burns awful plastic surgery: he spent his life’s earning on cosmetic procedures.
Burns’ band, Dead or Alive, gained notoriety for their song “You spin me round (like a record).” Once that was over, however, Burns has had numerous lip surgeries (through polyacrylamide injections). He has also has implants on his cheeks, gotten a number of tattoos and has invested in multiple nose reshapes. One of the surgeries on his lips seriously malformed his face and since then he has spent nearly all his earnings on surgeries aiming to reconstruct his face (lasted for eighteen months).
5) Cat-man Dennis Avner awful plastic surgery
The recently deceased Dennis Avner spent many years of his life trying to resemble a tiger or a “Stalking Cat” (his Native American name). Also famously known as Cat-man, he has gotten a number of tattoos, transdermal implants (to wear whiskers) and sub-dermal implants to modify his face. He has filed his teeth to make them look like a tiger’s (his totem animal). His face has now been enlarged beyond recognition.
6) Lizard-man Eric Sprague awful plastic surgery and tattoos
Thirty-seven year old Eric Sprague became commonly known as the Lizard-man after extensive surgeries and tattooing left him looking like a reptile. He was perhaps the first person to bifurcate his tongue, starting a trend that, in certain places, is credited to him alone. Other than that, he has had tattoos that took seven hundred hours of procedures, has overextended his earlobes and septum, made his teeth resemble an animal’s fangs and has implanted five horns underneath his eyebrows.
7) Designer Donatella Versace awful plastic surgery
She took over her brother’s multi-million dollar fashion house. She is smart, successful and horribly disfigured. Donatella Versace looks like a grotesque caricature of herself after she went under the knife and the entire procedure went horribly wrong. Apart from breast implants (which were revealed after her weight loss), she has gone through facelift procedures – something entirely obvious when the tight skin on her face clashes with the loose skin of her neck and arms, for example.
It is obvious that she has had Botox and other dermal injections in order to eliminate wrinkles. The fifty-three year old fashion designer has unnaturally huge lips that indicate high amounts of collagen and other fillers inside her skin. However, instead of getting that sensual Hollywood pout so obvious in her models, her lips just look odd and horrific. Also, her cosmetic surgeries have drastically increased the size of her nose, making it look crooked, flatter and much wider. Her nose truly looks like a gorilla’s.
8) Jackie Stallone awful plastic surgery: a case of implants and facelifts
Sylvester Stallone’s mother became the talk of the town when she claimed that she could talk to dogs to find out the future. A big believer in her supernatural abilities, Jackie started a psychic hotline that gave advice to clients in exchange for a fee. Lately, she has become notorious for her lip jobs, facelifts, nose job, brow lift and cheek implants. Truly, she is a bad case of implants and lifts.
9) The world’s most renowned transsexual: Amanda Lepore awful plastic surgery
She was once extremely poor but her obsession with cosmetic surgery made her the world’s most popular transsexual. When she was fifteen, she went under the knife for the first time and has since been a regular when it comes to surgeries. She got a sex change when she was finishing up high school and has been attempting to look more like the opposite sex since.
10) Italian socialite/collagen abuser: Michaela Romanini awful plastic surgery
Michaela Romanini is a forty-year old Italian socialite who became popular after her lip surgery went wrong. She has since had a number of other cosmetic surgeries and refuses to stop despite her badly disfigured face.
