Nip-tuck tales! Shocking plastic surgery transformations

These stars go to drastic measures for eternal beauty.

Whether it be a subtle batch of Botox or a whole new nose, in Hollywood going under the knife is just as common as getting your car serviced.

But there’s no denying plastic surgery can be a dangerous slippery slope and once you plump, fill and inject it’s often hard to step away from the doctor’s office.

Former Baywatch stunner Pamela Anderson, 48, and actress Priscilla Presley, 70, made headlines when they attended the Last Chance For Animals Annual Benefit Gala in Beverly Hills, with the duo’s curiously taut complexions sending surgery speculation into overdrive.

While Pammy has always been coy about what work she’s had done, she credits a dedicated skin-care regimen to her glowing looks.

“I’m not against plastic surgery, what I’ve had done will stay with me and that’s fine, but I don’t want anything else. I’ll do facials, but I don’t want to go down the scary route and have knives plunged into me,” the 48-year-old has said.

“I don’t mind aging. I’ve never been a classical beauty. I’ve always had that Playboy vibe. I don’t want to chase youth. Anyway, I find it chases me,” the blonde bombshell has vouched.

One lady who can’t be so cryptic is New York socialite Jocelyn Wildenstein, whose addiction for perfection has landed her the infamous nickname Cat Woman due to her feline features.

Legend says the 75-year-old has dropped more than $4 million dollars on procedures to make her look like a cat – her ex-husbands favourite animal.

To get to the bottom of what exactly these stars have had done Woman’s Day spoke to plastic surgeon Dr James Southwell-Keely, who has not treated these women but has years of experience in the field.

Iggy Azalea has penned a surprising tribute to her friend and plastic surgeon, Dr. Ashkan Ghavami, who she deems is “the reason I have fabulously perky boobs”. On his birthday, the Aussie rapper thanked the doctor for her “fabulous nose”, which is reportedly the first under-the-knife session she ever had to achieve her current look.

A tale of two Jonathans: Kim Kardashian’s bestie Jonathan Cheban (on the left in 2002), sparked fresh surgery speculation when he attended the VMAs in New York on August 28 (R). Fans were quick to point out the 42-year-old’s puffy-looking skin and tender eyes.

“Theres a lot of pressure [to look good],” the PR guru admitted to Hollywood Life.

All eyes were on Tori Spelling’s plunging neckline when she stepped out in LA this week. The actress admits she’s too scared to go under the knife to have her botched breast implants amended. “I have the biggest fear of going under for surgery. I’m so scared of being put to sleep,” the 43-year-old revealed on her show, True Tori.

Tori Spelling, pictured in 1992 on the left, admits she regrets having a boob job. “If someone had said to me when I was 20 years old, ‘by the way, every 10 to 15 years you’re going to need to get these suckers replaced’ I wouldn’t have done it.”

Lil’ Kim (pictured in 1999 on the left and March, 2016 on the right) has changed dramatically in recent years. And her latest Instagram post (which you can see in the next slide) has sparked a deluge of fresh surgery speculation.

After the 40-year-old rapper uploaded this collage on Instagram, fans alleged that she may have had skin bleaching and a nose job.

My, how you’ve changed: Lil’ Kim in 2003 (L) and in April, 2014 (R) are markedly different. Watch the Grammy Award-winner talk about her mentor, the late Notorious B.I.G in the next slide. Post continues after the video!

Meg Ryan is frozen in time! This week, the star attended a screening in New York (R) with a tight and taut appearance. Indeed, she’s barely aged a day since the 2003 photo (L) was taken.

The Sleepless in Seattle star’s complexion was suspiciously shiny during the outing.

Then and now: The 54-year-old seems to be just as fresh-faced as she was in her glory days. Dr James Southwell-Keely believes the Sleepless in Seattle actress has had a facelift, upper blepharoplasty (eyelid reconstruction) and lip fillers.

When Ellie Goulding stepped out at a pre-Grammys bash at the in LA earlier this week (R) her plumped pout and perfectly smooth skin prompted fevered surgery speculation. Indeed, the singer looks markedly different compared to 2010 (L).

After Ellie’s appearance at the event (R), Twitter was quick to erupt with chatter. “@elliegoulding no plastic surgery again pls. Never in a million years. Leave it to those who need it. You really don’t,” one user penned.

During the Nineties (L) Lara Flynn Boyle was one of the most sought after actresses. These days the 45-year-old is unrecognisable with notably puffier lips.

“On a vanity level, I am not looking forward to ageing at all,” the Twin Peaks star, pictured in 2000 on the left and just last month on the left, has mused in the past. Lara hasn’t confirmed nor denied going under the knife but experts speculate she may have had a nose job, Botox, fillers and a facelift.

John Travolta, is that you? In 1982 (L) John was Hollywood’s biggest heartthrob, nowadays, aged 61, the Grease star’s face is very wrinkle-free for a man his age. According to plastic surgeon Dr James Southwell-Kelly, the actor’s raised hairline indicates a “micro-follicular hair transplantation to conceal a receding hairline or a frontal eyebrow lift.”

Even his wife Kelly Preston refuses to age gracefully. The couple’s faces today (TOP) are about as smooth as they were 23 years ago (BOTTOM).

Aged 22 in 2006 (L) Khloe was a fresh-faced young woman on the cusp of her mega-successful reality TV career, and these days (R), the 31-year-old is almost unrecognisable as her stardom continues to sky-rocket.

The reality star stepped out recently to promote her new book in LA, but there was only one thing on everybody’s mind – how much her face had changed! With her full lips and even fuller cheeks, there’s no denying that she has definitely changed up her look since 2007 (L). “The most striking changes are her nose and lips. She has a a more refined nose. The tip of her nose is less bulbous and is has been subtly rotated upwards,” Dr James Southwell-Keely explained to Woman’s Day. The plastic surgeon speculates she has undergone a nose job and had fillers.

With her angelic features Pamela Anderson (on the left in 1994 and right in 2015) became an overnight sensation in the Nineties. But these days, her raised cheekbones, plump pout and smooth forehead have many wondering if she’s had a little help to maintain her timeless beauty.

Dr James Southwell-Keely tells Woman’s Day the mother-of-two has most likely had rhinoplasty which has “changed the shape of her nasal tip and better defined her dorsal aesthetic lines.” He believes the star has also touched up her lips and cheeks, citing extreme “volumisation” of those areas.

In 1976 Priscilla Presley (L) was a true beauty – it’s little wonder she caught the eye of superstar Elvis Presley. Fast forward to the present day (R) and the Norway-born actress looks decades younger than her 70 years.

In 2008 the star’s publicist admitted the wife of Elvis, pictured at their 1976 nuptials, had undergone botched plastic surgery by an unlicensed doctor. “It is likely that rhinoplasty has softened her

nose. Her lips appear to have received filler and Botox eliminates her facial wrinkles,” Dr James Southwell-Keely explains of her current-day appearance.

This week former Baywatch stunner and actress Priscilla made headlines when they attended the Last Chance For Animals Annual Benefit Gala in Beverly Hills thanks to their suspiciously taught complexions.

The duo rubbed shoulders at the charity event but it was their striking appearances that turned heads.

It’s believed New York socialite Jocelyn Wildenstein (pictured in 2000 on the left and 2015 on the right), aka Cat Woman, has spent around $4 million to achieve her feline features.

Experts claim 60-year-old Italian fashion powerhouse Donatella Versace, pictured in 1994 on the left and 2015 on the right, has undergone a nose job, lip fillers, chin implants and Botox.

Demi Moore is just smooth and line-free now (R) as she was 12 years ago (L). “I have had something done but it’s not on my face,” she told Elle UK. “Maybe one day I’ll go under the knife,” the 52-year-old hinted.

Meanwhile plastic surgeon Dr James Southwell-Keely thinks otherwise, claiming the star’s “lower facial squareness” suggests a “facelift with fillers or fat transfer.” He adds: “Upper and lower blepharoplasty would account for the absence of stigmata of periorbital aging and a subtle change in the shape of her eyes. Finally Botox helps to nullify her facial wrinkles.”

She rose to fame playing Stifler’s mum in American Pie and Jennifer Coolidge, 54, hasn’t aged a day since the early Noughties (L).
