The Worst Celebrity Plastic Surgery Disasters

With fierce competition in Hollywood, some celebrities feel tremendous pressure to conform to a look-obsessed society's standards of beauty or turn back time by going under the knife.

With social stigma regarding plastic surgery vanishing more quickly than the California Condor, a nip here and a tuck there is becoming commonplace. But what happens when this "quick fix" goes terribly wrong?

Some celebrities end up grossly disfigured in their pursuit of perfection - a mockery of their former selves.

The photo above is wealthy socialite Jocelyn Wildenstein, dubbed "Cat Woman" by the press due to her feline appearance from extensive plastic surgeries. After her husband began an affair with a Russian fashion model, Jocelyn began undergoing a series of plastic surgeries, spending a reported $4,000,000 over the years.

This is how Wildenstein looked prior to having any work done:

It is unimaginable to me that a plastic surgeon would agree to surgeries this extensive and disfiguring, and I would question the ethics of any doctor involved.
