5 Celebrities Who Regret Having Cosmetic Surgery

Believing they never should have tinkered with their bodies or faces, these 5 celebrities all say they regret having cosmetic surgery now. Looking back, they think they made the wrong decision when it came to going under the knife and they now wish they had steered clear it altogether. Opening up on their regrets, these stars have all admitted that they wish they did things differently and would change things if they could now because they aren’t happy with their results.

Kenny Rogers

Chicago Country Music Festival 2007

Kenny regrets changing his face: “I’m the plastic surgery king. I’m a bionic man! Every part of my body has been scooped or something at one time. I kind of wish I hadn’t done it. Looking back at some pictures of myself, my eyes were a lot warmer than they are now, and I miss that. “They have settled in a lot and they’re not as bad as they were right after surgery. I didn’t want to be an old man with this young girl. I didn’t want to look like an old man. As you go through life, you make choices. Some are good, some are bad.”

Denise regrets getting breast implants: “I often times feel like a hypocrite with my daughters when trying to teach them to have a healthy view on beauty and body image. I’m in a business where looks and weight do matter… My girls see me at work or getting ready for photo shoots and I’m sure at times it can be a confusing message to them when I’m being primped, dressed and fussed over. I always explain it’s Mommy’s job. They see me get spray-tanned and my nails done too. I always need fresh nails every week… At 19 when I first got my breasts done, I wish that I was confident enough with my body to not have had surgery. That is something that I really want to encourage in my daughters, to embrace their healthy body and have confidence.”

Heidi had multiple surgeries in one go and now regrets her decision: “It’s not who I am. It’s something I did. It was a choice that I made, and I wanted other women and people to know, ‘Yeah, I have insecurities and so does everyone, and this is what I did, and I don’t want to lie about it, and I don’t want to cover it up. I don’t like lying. It’s just not who I am. In retrospect, I do wish I never would have said anything. I wouldn’t do it again … If I could go back, I wouldn’t have had them. It was a lot harder, then I was led on by my doctor. I didn’t know how excessive it really was.”

Bond girl Britt regrets her decision to have surgery: ”I’ve realised this is just not me, but it is what it is and you have to live with it. Whatever I did 15 or 20 years ago, I’d never have done now. I turned 50, and you get insecure. The funny thing is for the last few years my career has been in the theatre, and natural expression is seen as a good thing. I think people look so much better if they don’t have surgery.”

David wishes he hadn’t altered his appearance: “If I had my way I’d go back to my original big nose with a bit of a hook in it. It looked great. When I went under the knife in 1981 I was really heavy. I’m 5ft 9in and weighed 14 and a half stone. One day I thought, ‘Ugh! I look older than the people I represent’. Michael had had a little nose thinning done so I knew I could do something about my face. I went to his plastic surgeon, Dr. Steven Hoefflin to do something with my nose. All of a sudden I decided to have a nose job and facelift in one operation, and have cheek implants and a cleft chin in another a week later.”
