Every year, almost 2 million cosmetic surgeries take place in the United States alone. Many of those patients are celebrities, whose appearance is an important part of their livelihood not to mention, they get scrutinized by the public every single day.
Getting a little work done may make people feel better about themselves, although most of the time that feeling is temporary, and may cause negative psychological effects after it passes. Read on to see which of your favorite celebrities went under the knife and how much it cost them.
Gwyneth Paltrow - (Estimated) $1,500
The Academy Award winning actress Gwyneth Paltrow has been making movies for 30 years and still looks great doing it. She is known for eating healthy and practicing selfcare, so it’s no wonder she looks amazing at almost 50, but she did try and improve her appearance cosmetically once. Paltrow spent an estimated $1,500 on Botox, which like many celebrities, she claims to regret.
She has said of the experience and cosmetic surgery in general, she says she'd be scared to go under the knife, but maybe when she's 50 she will change her mind. At least she's honest!
Kim Kardashian - (Rumored) $16,500
The most famous Kardashian of them all, Kim, has been nicknamed the “Queen of all Media” and you don’t get that kind of title without a few improvements here and there. She earned the name with her work as a television personality, model, businesswoman, and actress. Kim Kardashian, who is married to Kanye West, has plenty of money in the bank, so her alleged cosmetics surgery budget must seem like nothing more than pocket change.
With a net worth of roughly $85 million, seems like it is no problem for Kim to spend some money on improving her appearance. She is rumored to have spent $5,000 on a nose job and $5,000 more on Botox treatment to her eyebrows and other facial modifications to her skin and lips. Kim denies having undergone any surgery to change her appearance.
Jocelyn Wildenstein - (Rumored) $6.7 Million
Jocelyn Wildenstein has endured a lot of pain and spent a lot of money to completely transform her face and body. It is hard to even recognize her as the same woman she used to be. All of the work she has had done has led to Wildenstein becoming known as “Catwoman”.
It is not easy or cheap to have yourself turned into a human feline, but don’t worry too much about her finances. She can clearly afford the unbelievably large price tag all her procedures have run up. According to the Mirror, Jocelyn has spent more than anyone else on her transformation, she’s at $6.7 million and we’re not sure she’s done yet.
Tom Jones - (Rumored) $46,000
Legendary singer Tom Jones got his start in the 1960s with songs like “What’s new, Pussycat” and “She’s a Lady” and has been going strong ever since. He has been filling stadiums seats for over fifty years, and it’s safe to say that even at the age of 70, he’s still got it.
Part of being a performer for Tom Jones is also hanging on to his looks for as long as he can. The singer actually told Mirror, that his doctor has recommended he stop getting procedures done. Apparently, he told him, “you’ve got to be careful with your lower eyes… your eyes will be bloody popping out!” That seems like sound advice.
NeNe leaks - (Estimated) $20,500
The Real Housewives of Atlanta reality star, Linnethia Monique “NeNe” Leakes, is not only a television personality, but also an actress, author and fashion designer. She has also appeared on The Apprentice, had a recurring character on Glee and The New Normal and was the co-host of E! channel’s Fashion Police.
Leakes opened up about the work she had done in 2013, admitting that she had undergone a number of procedures to maintain her youthful appearance. She underwent a breast reduction, a rhinoplasty, liposuction, and a breast lift. We have to admit that it seems she knew when to stop, because she looks great and not overly done.
Demi Moore - (Rumored) $400,000
You may not know, that before Demi Moore became a famous actress, she spent some time working as a model and is also a songwriter and filmmaker. All those talents helped her become a big star in movies in the 1980s and 90s. She even made Hollywood history, as the highest-paid actress of all time for her role in the film Striptease, for which she brought home a paycheck of $12.5 million.
All these years later, Demi still looks amazing and seems to have barely aged. This is most likely due to a number of cosmetic surgeries she underwent, including numerous facelifts and cheek augmentations and also laser treatments.
Janice Dickinson - (Estimated) $20,000
Janice Dickinson – (Estimated) $20,000 Known by many as the world’s first supermodel, Janice Dickinson was an extremely successful model in the 70s and 80s, due to her dark haired and exotic look, which was different than the typical fair skinned blondes which graced magazine covers in those days. The brunette beauty appeared on the covers of Vogue, Cosmopolitan and Playboy.
Later in her career, she became a judge on America’s Next Top Model and starred in her own reality show, the Janice Dickinson Modeling Agency. Since she relies on her looks to make a living, Dickinson was not going to just let them fade away. She has stated that she is quite familiar with plastic surgery, and has had a facelift, brow lift, tummy tuck, and fillers in order to keep looking her best.
Donatella Versace – (Rumored) $25,000

With an estimated net worth of $200 million, Donatella is one of the richest women in the world. She has been quoted as saying, “I do not believe in totally natural for women,” and has lived up to those words by getting laser surgery, Botox injections and fillers to improve her appearance. She has spent an estimated $25,000 on those alterations.
Pamela Anderson - (Estimated) $10,500
The beautiful actress made her acting debut on Home Improvement but really became famous in her red swimsuit as a lifeguard on hit series Baywatch. Pamela Anderson is also famous for being a Playboy bunny and for doing some adult film work.
Like many celebrities, Anderson was known for her amazing good lucks when she was young, but did not enjoy getting older. To keep herself looking her best, she apparently underwent several surgeries and kept doing so to maintain her appearance. She got breast implants and underwent face tightening procedures.
Ashlee Simpson - (Estimated) $13,000
We saw Jessica Simpson on this list and now its time for her younger sister, Ashlee. Their family clearly has good genes, because they are both naturally beautiful, but it seems like they felt that nature could be improved upon, at least a little. Unlike her big sis, however, Ashlee really went for it. She apparently had procedures done on her eyebrows, cheeks, nose, and lips, spending an estimated $13,000. Although the surgery didn’t change how she felt on the inside.
“I used to look at a beautiful girl on the cover of a magazine and think I could never be that,” Ashlee, told US Weekly. (Plastic surgery) is something that everybody should think about for a really long time. Once you know it’s something you really feel comfortable with, then to each their own.” She added, "I was never really unhappy with how I looked, and I don't think I am more beautiful than I was before. I just see the same old goofy girl I see every day."
Kelly Rowland - (Estimated) $22,000
While it is hard to take your eyes off Beyoncé, who can forget her Destiny’s child bandmate Kelly Rowland. The talented singer also found success as a solo artist once the band broke up and even went on to do some acting and hosting on television. Seems like Rowland has it all, but she felt that she was missing something, in the chest area.
She decided to rectify the situation, saying, “I wanted to get breast implants when I was 18, but my mom and Beyoncé’s mom told me to really think about it first. I took their advice and waited 10 years.” Waiting may have been the right decision at the time, but if you still want the same thing 10 years later, it’s time to go for it.
Kris Jenner - (Rumored) $1 Million
The matriarch of the Kardashian Jenner clan, Kris Jenner, is the glue that keeps the family together. As we’ve seen in this article, this family is no stranger to surgeries, procedures and other body and facial modifications. They use their appearance to make a living and they are clearly willing to go all out, and neither pain nor expense will slow them down.
Seems like Kris has been a role model for the family in the plastic surgery game as well. She has had multiple surgeries which she began to undergo over four decades ago. She has admitted to getting breast implants, a neck lift, as well as fillers, Botox and laser treatments. She maintains that she has not gotten a nose job, although many people don’t believe her.
Britney Spears - Unknown
Pop star Britney Spears appears on this list, although she has undergone only minor procedures and has referred to them as “fun stuff”. We’re pretty sure that not everyone thinks that having needles stuck in their lips is that much fun, but okay.
Shes had lip injections before, and a peptide-based face-care product; it’s green and slimy, and you mix it together and put it on your face. It does wonders. You leave it on overnight. Can you tell I love skincare?”
Trista Sutter - (Estimated) $11,000
Reality star Trista Sutter got her start on dating show The Bachelor, where she was the first runner up and went on to become the very first Bachelorette, in which she ended up finding love and even getting engaged by the end of the season.

Although she was paid $1 million from ABC for a three-part special about her wedding, Sutter did not rush into getting cosmetic procedures. When she got a little older, she underwent a blepharoplasty to reconstruct and lift her eyelids and breast augmentation and lift. The work was tastefully done, Trista who is nearing 50, still looks great and like herself.
Rumer Willis - (Rumored) $100,000
We’ve already seen this actress and singer’s mother on this list, Rumer Willis is the daughter of Demi Moore and Bruce Willis. In this case, it seems like the apple didn’t fall far from the tree, at least when it comes to cosmetic surgery.
With parents like that she may have plenty of cash, but she has allegedly spent a nice chuck of change on getting work done. Some claim that she has already spent $100,000 on procedures, including jawline reconstructive surgery and rhinoplasty. She has also undergone Botox and lip injections.

In fact, she says that it isn’t all that different from getting fake tans or whitening your teeth. Like, why grow old when you have the technology to prevent it?! Nicole has undergone a procedure known as small breast augmentation, which improves cleavage while maintaining a more natural look. She also had work done on her face. The total cost of these changes has been estimated at $13,000.
Dolly Parton - (Rumored) $25,000
Country music superstar Dolly Parton is not shy about the cosmetic surgeries she’s had. She told InTouch magazine during an interview that “[a]nybody that’s got the nerve, desire and the money to have surgery, should find a good doctor and just do it.” She clearly believes that having some work done helped her and could potentially help others.
Now in her 70s, Parton has revealed that she has gotten breast implants, chin liposuction, fillers, and undereye bag work. But it seems like she knew when to quit the big stuff, in 2012 she said, “These days, I do very little — just fillers and Botox. You owe it to people not to look like a dog if you can help it!”
Nicki Minaj - (Rumored) $31,200
Successful singer Nicki Minaj has come a long way since she first started out in Queens, New York. Over the past decade, she has become one of the most influential female artists around, won six American Music Awards and was nominated for 10 Grammys.

Roseanne Barr - (Rumored) $45,000

The rumors claim that all you have to do is look at the clues.
In 2015, Ariana Grande canceled the remainder of her tour but did not offer any explanation. There were rumors that she used the time to have rhinoplasty, an eye lift, lip injections and even possibly breast augmentation. This amount of work would have cost her roughly $10,000.
Kourtney Kardashian - (Rumored) $25,000
You will probably not be surprised that the next person on the list is also a Kardashian, and fair warning she may not be the last. The more low-key sister, Kourtney Kardashian, had her breasts done while she was still in college, which is surprising considering that was before her family became a worldwide sensation.
Looking back, however, she does have some regrets. “I wish I never did it,” she revealed. “I had great boobs. Now I’m going to have to get them redone at some point. I like to look like myself. I like imperfections, but you also want to look your best. I think lasers would be a good place to start if I was feeling like doing something.” That is an unusual statement from someone with a family which seems to heavily rely on cosmetic alterations.
Courtney Love - (Estimated) $10,000
Singer, actress and legendary bad girl Courtney Love has been making music for almost four decades. She rose to fame as the lead singer of alternative rock band Hole and especially because of her marriage to Nirvana singer Kurt Cobain with which she had a daughter before his tragic death.

When she was just starting her career, she got a nose job and has since reportedly spent roughly $10,000 on changing her appearance. She has undergone breast augmentations and numerous lip injections and people who have seen her claim that she does not look like herself.

The sweet faced actress who was once an admired movie star, received severe backlash from the public for her changing looks. Plastic surgery expert Mark Youssef even said about Ryan that “She’s had too much done”. She has undergone a multitude of procedures, including a neck lift and numerous fillings. Unfortunately, all of those surgeries have done her more bad than good, and left the actress looking plasticky and fake, and far different than she used to.
Ciara - Unknown
Ciara is mostly known as a singer but she is also an actress and a model. She has been making music for over a decade, but seems to have recently shifted her priorities from her musical career to focus on her family. She had a very public breakup with rapper Future, but is now happily married to Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russel Wilson, with whom she has one child and is expecting another.
Like many other music stars, Ciara plays around with her look and often changes her hair style, but if you look closely, her facial features seem to also have changed over the years.

Looking at her now, it seems like the surgeries did not have the desired effect, making her look older and almost unrecognizable.
She had some serious work done in 2006, including getting a nose job, lip augmentation, facial fillers, and a brow lift. Sadly, all these procedures ended up causing her face to swell and sag, making it hard to reconcile her with the way she looked at the beginning of her career.

It didn’t help me one bit.

No wonder she decided to treat herself, spending an estimated $13,000 on rejuvenating her lady parts, rhinoplasty, and getting her lips done. She returned to the public eye in 2013, after an adult video in which she starred was released and even won an award for best celebrity tape. We hope her kids never have to hear about that.

The actress, who rose to fame in hit teen soap Gossip Girl, has neither confirmed or denied changing her looks through cosmetic surgery, but when you look at her pictures side by side, it seems clear that her face has changed a little. In newer photos, her nose appears thinner and more sculpted than it was when she was just starting out. There has also been speculation that she had her eyelids lifted and undergone skin smoothing procedures.
There have also been rumors that she has had breast augmentation surgery. Either with or without surgery, Lively, who married fellow actor Ryan Reynolds in 2012, looks amazing. The couple have three daughters which we’re sure keeps their hands full.
Jessica Simpson - (Estimated) $2,000
Singer, actress and reality star Jessica Simpson, famously starred with her ex-husband Nick Lachey in a reality show about their relationship. Many fans were heartbroken when it didn’t last, but the two have since gone on with their lives. We are glad to see that Jessica is now doing well and happy, even though she wasn’t happy when she experimented with enlarging her lips.
Simpson tried getting lip injections in the past, but she was not happy with the results. “I had that Restylane stuff,” she told Glamour magazine in 2006, adding that she was disappointed in the results. “It went away in like four months…[but] thank God! [They] looked fake to me. I didn’t like that.”
Megan Fox - (Rumored) $8,000
Known for her extraordinary good looks, actress Megan Fox, began acting at a young age and appeared in the blockbuster franchises Transformers and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Even before getting some work done, she was already a famously beautiful actress, but fans noticed some changes to her appearance around 2013.
The actress has denied it, but it seems clear that she has had some alterations done. It is believed that she has undergone breast augmentation, cheek implants, lip fillers and Botox. Despite her denials, a comparison between her old and new pictures shows the truth clearly.
Kylie Jenner - (Rumored) $2 Million
At just 22 years of age, Kylie Jenner is the youngest celebrity on the list to have had cosmetic surgery. Seems like getting some work done is a rite of passage in the Jenner Kardashian clan. She rose to fame at an early age and along with being a reality star, is also a model and has her own billion dollar cosmetics company. We guess that looking good is part of her brand and therefore it is no surprise that she decided to make some improvements along the way.
Although Kylie claims that she has not been under the knife, it is believed that she has had her share of filler injections to fill out her face and plump up her lips. Others claim that she had body modification surgeries at an estimated total of $2 million.
Clay Aiken - (Estimated) $11,000
Famous for coming in second on the second season of reality singing competition American Idol in 2003, Clay Aiken is a talented singer whose career has prospered in the past two decades. He has had a little work done, but his reasons for doing it sort of make sense, since he was having surgery on his jaw anyway.
“I had operative surgery on my jaw for a TMJ thing and I had them suck the fat out of my chin while they were in there,” he stated.
Mickey Rourke - (Rumored) $36,000
Former boxer and actor Mickey Rourke did a number of memorable films in the 80s, but then quit acting for a while and went back to boxing. He came back to acting full time in the mid-90s and has been fairly busy ever since, but as the years went on, Rourke became more and more obsessed with his appearance.
According to one source, “he’s hooked on surgery.” Most of the surgeries that have been performed on him were on his face. He has had a nose alteration and an astounding six facelifts. It is believed that Rourke spent $36,000 on these changes to his appearance.
Tori Spelling - (Estimated) $13,000
Actress Tori Spelling came to fame when she played Donna Martin on hit teen drama Beverly Hills 90210, which was recently revived after 20 years. Over the years, she has also starred in several reality shows with her husband Dean McDermott. She underwent breast enhancement surgery in her early twenties, but has come to regret it, since she became a mother.
She talked about the experience when she was pregnant with her third child, telling how she got her boobs done in her early 20s, but if she had known it could possibly impact the production of [breast] milk, she would never have had them done.
Nicole Kidman - (Rumored) $1,400
Esteemed actress and Academy Award winner Nicole Kidman is one of Hollywood’s biggest stars. She has been a movie star for decades and still looks incredible in picture after picture. How does she keep herself looking so well after all these years? The actress claims that she has had some work done on her face, but was not happy with the results.
She said, “I did try Botox, unfortunately, but I got out of it now I can finally move my face again.” Well, sometimes you have to see for yourself what something is like and since we assume that it got in the way of her acting, maybe it’s for the best that she gave it a rest. Fortunately, the costs weren’t that high either.
Heidi Montag - (Admitted) $1 Million+
Former reality star Heidi Montag, who recently appeared in the reboot The Hills: New Beginnings, has called herself a proclaimed plastic surgery “addict.” She may be more well known for her physical transformation than for her work on television or for the albums that she’s released as a singer.
Heidi revealed in 2012 that she had spent more than a million dollars in cosmetic procedures. She even had 10 procedures performed in one day once, including a nose job, breast implants, a butt enhancement, liposuction, and a brow lift. She claims that her desire to keep getting work done stems from her insecurities, but has added that she regrets getting carried away.
Kim Novak - (Estimated) $9,000
Actress Kim Novak began working in films in the 1950s, and her most famous roles were in Picnic, The Man with the Golden Arm, and Vertigo, which was directed by Alfred Hitchcock. Her career took a turn for the worse in the 60s, when she took a step back from blockbusters and made some mundane pictures. She finally quit acting completely in 1991.
Most people assumed that Novak would retire quietly and that she would not be seen in Hollywood again. The actress decided to take measures against that by undergoing a variety of serious cosmetic procedures including cheek implants, a brow lift, and Botox injections. When Novak appeared in the 2014 Oscars by Matthew McConaughey’s side, it was hard to believe that she was the same woman.
Joan Rivers - (Rumored) $99,000
Beloved comedienne Joan Rivers, who sadly passed away in 2014, knew how to make us laugh and occasionally winch when she said something extremely inappropriate. Rivers managed to make a name for herself in the male-dominated field of comedy, at a time when such a thing was almost unheard of, and became a legend for it.
Joan Rivers refused to grow old, gracefully or otherwise and kept herself looking young through cosmetic means. She kept working and performing well into her 60s and 70s and pretty much for her entire life. She holds the record for minor procedures undertaken by one individual with an unbelievable 348. That is more than any other celebrity or a regular person.
Michael Jackson - (Rumored) $1 Million
The King of Pop himself, Michael Jackson, who passed away in 2009, was famous for his massive transformation which took place over the entire span of his career. To this day, Jackson is considered one of the most talented musicians in history, but his strange behavior and the startling changes in his appearance are his legacy just as much as his music.
The photos clearly show the change in his appearance which occurred over time. Jackson denied undergoing procedures to lighten his skin and claimed that he had a skin condition called Vitiligo, which caused his skin pigments to became lighter. The singer did admit to having two facial surgeries performed when he was a guest on the Oprah Winfrey Show. It is believed that he also underwent a jaw reconstruction, eye lifts, nose jobs, and many other surgeries.
Rita Ora - (Admitted) $30,000
The talented Rita Ora took England by storm with her beautiful voice. But this singer wasn't always as confident as she looks on stage today. Ora admitted to having breast augmentation, Botox injections, and some nose work, and she doesn't regret a minute of it.
Since she was already having surgery, Ora decided to get some of her teeth relocated and bleached, too. After all, it is incredibly important for a singer to have a beautiful smile, and this English music queen certainly has one.
Jane Fonda - (Admitted) $5,300
Jane Fonda is perhaps one of the only celebrities in Hollywood that knows how to get plastic surgery. The woman is 82 years old and looks phenomenal., and the reason is because the legendary actress knows she should never overdo things.
Fonda has been gracing the screens with her acting, her fitness routines and her activism since the '60s, and she's learnt a thing or two. Like when to go under the knife, and when to avoid it at all costs. Apart from Botox injections here and there and a little nip tuck under the eyes and around the neck, this gal owes her beauty to her healthy and fit lifestyle.
Fredric Brandt - Unknown
Dr. Fredric Brandt was known among the Hollywood elite as the King of Collagen, and for good reason. This celebrity plastic surgeon believed so firmly in his own treatments, that he was constantly giving himself Botox and collagen injections. It seemed that nothing was ever enough for the doctor, who already suffered from severe depression.
Sadly, Dr. Brandt committed suicide in 2015. He was mourned by his many celebrity friends, among them Kelly Ripa, Madonna, and countless more.
Jennifer Aniston - (Estimated) $30,500
When you spent most of the '90s being the stunning Rachel from 'Friends' and married to Brad Pitt, it must be excruciatingly hard to accept that you're aging. Which is why Jennifer Aniston has spent over $30,000 in plastic surgery; supposedly, two nose jobs and a face lift in the last twenty years. But that's just the actual plastic surgery.
Apparently, Aniston cleans out her bank account when it comes to beauty, spending more than $1.5 million on a strict regimen of laser and ultrasound facials, and eyebrow lifts. Yikes!
Tom Cruise - (Admitted) $8,000
Although the famous Hollywood legend Tom Cruise has only ever confessed to having a nose job in the early days of his career, many people suspect that is far from the end of his plastic surgery adventures. After showing up at the 2016 BAFTA awards looking like a balloon, it got harder to deny the Botox injections.
Although the 'Mission Impossible' star hasn't confirmed the Botox rumor, it is clear that he has definitely had more work done since his nose job many years ago. Don't worry Tom, none of us can beat time, not even you.
Chrissy Teigen - (Admitted) $7,000
American model Chrissy Teigen has always been known for her candid, lighthearted humor and her on-screen charisma. But before she became a cookbook author and the famous host of 'Lip Sync Battle', Teigen was a Sports Illustrated Swimsuit model, and quite a famous one at that. So, it wasn't surprising when she admitted to having had breast augmentation surgery back in 2006, when she was a young 20 years old.
Although her decision as a young model made perfect sense, Teigen claims that she regrets having the procedure done. Especially because implants don't fair very well when it comes to breastfeeding a new baby!
Angelina Pivarnick - (Estimated) $13,500
A Staten Island native, Angelina Pivarnick made her claim to fame when she appeared in the first two seasons of MTV's 'Jersey Shore'. She then went on to appear on VH1's 'Couple Therapy', and finally, in 'Jersey Shore: Family Vacation'. In the last few years, Pavernick has slowly been transforming into a different-looking person, as you can clearly see in the photo below. In 2020, the TV personality revealed she'd had a breast augmentation, a lip filler, a nose job, and an eyebrow lift.
She maintains that her breasts are her favorite part of her body, and even though we sincerely hopes she's done with surgery, something tells us Pavernick already has too much of a liking for that surgery knife.
Teresa Giudice - (Estimated) $10,000
After making her debut on 'The Real Housewives of New Jersey', Teresa Giudice became a well-known name in TV. And while it was pretty clear that she had had some work done in the last few years, it wasn't until January of 2020 that the New Jersey-born TV star admitted to having had a second breast augmentation. Her first was twelve years before!
It has also been rumored that the fiery New Jersey housewife has had some fillers on her lips and face, and an eyebrow lift, and we wouldn't find it at all surprising.
Dina Manzo - (Estimated) $8,000
Dina Manzo reached celebrity status after appearing in the popular Tv show, 'The Real Housewives of New Jersey'. But, like many other TV stars, Manzo faced criticism after some of her fans accused her of getting a nose job in 2019. Shortly after, she confirmed it was true, and said she wouldn't address the rumors regarding the fillers. The TV star said that, even though she had no regrets about her nose job, it was a big adjustment.
The Brooklyn-born Manzo also said that she loves Botox, but that a healthy lifestyle is definitely the secret to staying youthful and beautiful.
Cardi B - (Estimated) $30,000
If there is one celebrity who is unapologetic about her plastic surgeries, it's singer Cardi B. The 27-year-old Bronx native has admitted (although you can tell by simply looking at her) to having breast implants, a breast lift, liposuction and even butt injections after giving birth to her daughter in 2018. The rapper hasn't been shy to defend her choices on social media, saying that her strenuous lifestyle doesn't allow for actual exercise and workout and, more explicitly, "I do whatever the f--k I want to do with my body”. And to be fair, she's completely right.
However, Cardi B might have hit her plastic surgery limit after she was forced to cancel several shows because of complications. Apparently, she didn't take the time to recover properly from her last surgery and just kept on working non-stop, which obviously landed her right back in the hospital. At least it got her to stop going under the knife.
Courteney Cox - Unknown
Back in the '90s, Courteney Cox was one of the most beautiful women in TV, making her big debut as Monica in the beloved sitcom, 'Friends'. But like many other TV stars, the pressure of aging got the best of her, and she went overboard with fillers and face lifts. In the last 10 years, Cox has become almost a cautionary tale for plastic surgery, making her fans gasp every time they see her latest look.
Fortunately, Cox has come out recently and openly admitted to having deep regrets about her surgeries, saying that she's had most of her fillers dissolved and has learned to "age gracefully".
Ariel Winter - (Estimated) $7,500
Ariel Winter made her big screen debut when she starred as Alex Dunphy, the nerdy good daughter in 'Modern Family'. But she's certainly come a long way from that sweet little girl she played on the show. Winter admitted to getting a breast reduction when she was only 17 years old, after the back pain became insufferable.
The young actress said it was the best decision she ever made, and it helped her get back her confidence. Well, she's certainly grown into a beautiful woman, and that new red hair color makes her look even more stunning!
Julie Chen - (Rumored) $5,000
Most people know Julie Chen from her work as a news anchor and producer at CBS, and for being the longest-running host of the American reality TV show, 'Big Brother'. But most fans had no idea that Chen had had plastic surgery until she revealed it in an interview in 2013. And it wasn't your avergae surgery, it was a cosmetic procedure to look her "Asian eyes" look bigger.
The news anchor says she faced racial discrimination when she was 25 years old, when her boss said she was too Chinese to be on TV. Even though Chen was very conflicted before having the procedure done, she says she has absolutely no regrets, claiming that "No one's more proud of being Chinese than I am. Every decision I've made … it got [me] to where we are today, and I'm not going to look back."
Stassi Schroeder - (Estimated) $20,500
Stassi Schroeder was one of the stars of the American TV series, 'Vanderpump Rules'. The show was a spin-off of 'The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills', so you can imagine how much pressure Schroeder was under to look like a Barbie doll. The New Orleans-born TV star admitted to having a breast lift and reduction in 2015.
Schroeder has also become a popular blogger, and has written that she's also had Botox injections and a chin implant. Although there are also rumors that she's had her lips filled, it remains to be confirmed.
Cindy Crawford - Unknown
During the 80s and 90s, you couldn't flip through a style magazine without finding Cindy Crawford in it. Once the most beautiful and famous supermodel in the world, this American beauty is now 54 years old, and like the rest of us, has had to deal with the passing of time. Crawford is well aware of this fact, which is why she's openly admitted to using vitamin injections, collagen and Botox for the past 15 years.
The former supermodel claims she owes her looks to a healthy lifestyle - drinking lots of water, eating clean food, and exercising. But when it comes to the "quality of her skin", Crawford proudly credits plastic surgery, claiming that, past a certain age, no matter how many creams you use, it just won't be enough without having a little work done. Although there are rumors of cheek implants and a face lift. Guess we will never know for sure.
Kaley Cuoco - (Estimated) $12,000
Ever since 'The Big Bang Theory' premiered in 2007, it became an instant TV favorite. And so did the show's blonde bombshell, Kaley Cuoco. But it wasn't until 2016 that Cuoco admitted to having had a breast augmentation, and a nose job years before that, and some face fillers now and then. However, the actress is adamant about the importance of healthy eating and working out regularly to keep in shape.
Cuoco describes her breast surgery as "the best thing I ever did". In an interview with 'Woman's Health', the actress said, “As much as you want to love your inner self, I’m sorry, you also want to look good,” she said. “I don’t think you should do it for a man or anyone else, but if it makes you feel confident, that’s amazing.” We have to say that we totally agree.
Wendy Williams - (Estimated) $16,000
The famous American TV host, businesswoman and author, Wendy Williams has openly admitted to having some work done. Mainly, breast implants, a nose job, several Botox injections and face lifts. She even filmed herself having a jawline Botox injection on her show once!
Back in 2009, Williams talked openly about her breast implants on her show, saying, “I wanted the body that matched my personality. And the body I have now matches my personality.”
Katie Price - (Estimated) $617,000
Katie Price is an English model turned TV star, turned businesswoman, which would explain where she got the money to have so many plastic surgeries at just 41 years of age. Price has never been shy to admit her countless surgeries, which include eight breast implants, a nose job, veneers over her teeth, liposuction, several Botox injections every year, and regular dermal fillers. And by looking at the photo below, we believe all of it.
Unfortunately, as many celebrities know, too much plastic surgery can be disastrous and leave people looking completely unrecognizable, which definitely seems to be the case with Katie. But, rumor has it the model/TV star is quite satisfied with her procedures and plans to keep getting under the knife. To each their own.
Paul Stanley - Unknown
Paul Stanley is the guitarist and co-lead vocalist of legendary rock band, Kiss. And while he managed to survive most of the madness that came with the band's fame through most of the '70s, '80s and '90s, his face certainly didn't. Stanley has admitted to having several face lifts, eyebrow lifts, a nose job, a lip job, and several Botox injections.
But the most impressive surgery Stanley had was an ear reconstruction back in the 80s, after a congenital deformity had caused him to have a stump for an ear. A surgery that allowed Stanley to be a part of KISS in the first place, since he would've been completely deaf otherwise. The guitarist had his right ear reconstructed from his rib! Although it is pretty obvious that the rock legend has had extensive work done on his face, he still looks pretty good for a 68-year-old. Remember, he's not your regular senior, he's the guitarist of KISS. So all in all, we'd say he looks fine.
