Most of us have never considered going under the knife unless it’s for medical reasons. But celebrities live in an entirely different world filled with activities that non-famous people rarely get the chance to participate in. Having cosmetic surgery performed is a controversial subject, although some smaller procedures (like tattooing semi-permanent eyebrows or freckles) have become more mainstream in the last few years. From the celebrities who flaunt it- we’re looking at you, Kardashians!- to the celebrities who deny it, this list covers the rich and famous who spent big money to change their looks.
Jocelyn Wildenstein, AKA “Catwoman”
There is no better person to start this list off than Jocelyn Wildenstein. The New York socialite has never been a stranger to the media, which gave the public a unique perspective on her rapidly changing appearance. Her looks have gone from that of a fresh-faced young and hopeful actress to one so transformed by plastic surgery that she’s nearly unrecognizable. Wildenstein began her journey into plastic surgery like many young women- an eyelift here, a facelift there. But her foray into cosmetic surgery soon became an obsession. She was determined to transform her face into one that resembles a feline to combine her love of surgery and cats. She’s now known simply as “Catwoman” and the result is both stunning and terrifying.
We estimate Wildenstein has spent over $4 million on various surgeries.
