10 months ago

Celebrities strive for perfection. In pursuit of this, they’re often willing to make significant sacrifices. Some exhaust themselves with strict diets and long hours at the gym. Others opt for surgeries, some of which can be risky. Here are a few stars whose physical transformations sparked a buzz.

1. Blake Lively

The actress herself has never confirmed undergoing any surgeries, but internet users and fans have clearly noticed a change in her nose. It’s also believed that Blake underwent blepharoplasty.

2. Demi Moore

Unlike many Hollywood stars, Demi Moore never denied that her beauty is not only natural, but also the product of experienced professionals. She has spent about $320,000 on all of her procedures. Besides, once she had a very unusual surgery — knee lipomodeling which made the skin on her knees less wrinkly.

3. Nicki Minaj

Fans love Nicki Minaj not only for her great songs, but also for the fact that she doesn’t want to lose weight and loves her body. But if you look at her most recent photos, you can see that she has lost a bit of weight and her legs look much slimmer now, so people online think that she might have had liposuction.

Nicki doesn’t like talking about plastic surgeries. In one of her interviews, she said, I’ve never had surgery on my face. It’s all makeup!" Anyway, her fans love her for her energy and her music that just makes you want to move.

4. Ariana Grande

Ariana Grande is a famous singer all around the world now. This smiley teenage girl turned into a gorgeous woman with millions of fans. Now, she looks like Bambi, but she didn’t look like this when she was younger.

She doesn’t talk about these changes herself, but she claims that she didn’t have any plastic surgeries on her nose or her breasts. What do you think: has anything changed about her eyelids or it is just good makeup?

Dita von Teese has a 22-inch waist. The queen of burlesque openly admits that she had plastic surgery where some of her ribs were removed.

6. Emmanuelle Béart

French actress Emmanuelle Béart was considered to be one of the most attractive women several decades ago: thanks to her cute appearance, the viewers fell in love with her at first sight. But Emmanuelle herself didn’t think she looked perfect and she wanted to have bigger lips. Unfortunately, doctors made a mistake and injected a different solution into her lips which changed the shape of her mouth. After this accident, Béart is strongly against plastic surgery.

7. Drew Barrymore

Drew Barrymore is one of the few celebrities that has had breast reduction surgery (in the 1990s). At the time, she changed her breast size from DD to C. In 1998, the actress told the New York Daily News, “I really love my body and the way it is right now. There’s something very awkward about women and their breasts, because men look at them so much. When they’re huge, you become very self-conscious. Your back hurts. You find that whatever you wear, you look heavy in it. It’s just uncomfortable.”

8. Jennifer Grey

After her success in Dirty Dancing, the actress opted for rhinoplasty. The star was concerned that her appearance might limit her from being cast in other projects. Ultimately, after the surgery, even her friends couldn’t recognize her. On one occasion, Jennifer was almost denied boarding a plane because they couldn’t believe she was the same “Baby” from the movie. Jennifer herself once said: “I went in the operating room a celebrity—and came out anonymous”.

Here are a few more celebrities who look completely different in various photos.
