Celebrities Who Have Admitted to Having Plastic Surgery

Celebrity Cosmetic ProceduresMost celebrities are very secretive about their beauty routines and want us to believe that they are naturally gifted with good looks. Occasionally, stars do come forward and admit to having plastic surgery. A celebrity’s candidness about his or her experiences can give other people considering plastic surgery the courage or motivation to pursue their own options.

Here are a few examples of celebrities who have admitted to having plastic surgery:

Julie Chen

Julie made headlines last year when she admitted to getting eyelid surgery at the beginning of her reporting career. After her boss told her that her eyes looked “disinterested and bored” on camera, Julie had surgery to make her eyes look bigger. When asked about her decision, she said it “got me to where we are today. And I’m not going to look back.”


Cher has admitted to having breast surgery and a nose job in the 80s after seeing herself onscreen in “Mask.” Years later, E! Online quoted Cher saying plastic surgery “makes me happy.”

Sylvester Stallone

A birth injury damaged the nerves on the left side of Sylvester’s face, leaving his mouth crooked. Losing weight to prepare for Rocky caused that side of his face to sag even further. To fix the unevenness, Sylvester had the left side of his face surgically lifted. According to  People magazine, he had the following to say regarding his plastic surgery: “Why not do it? You have body work done on your car.”

Clay Aiken

The star of American Idol and Celebrity Apprentice admitted to Bravo’s Andy Cohen that he had plastic surgery. Clay said he needed jaw surgery to repair temporomandibular joint issues, and asked his doctors to remove excess fat from his chin during the same operation.

Kaley Cuoco

Kaley admitted to Cosmopolitan magazine that she had breast implants placed when she was 18 years old. The star of the “Big Bang Theory” says the surgery was “the best decision I ever made.”

Dolly Parton

Dolly has copped to having breast implants, liposuction, fillers and BOTOX® and removing the “pelican pouch” underneath her chin. A few years ago, she told In Touch magazine that she now focuses on simple maintenance with injectable treatment.

“Anybody that’s got the nerve, desire and the money to have surgery, should find a good doctor and just do it,” Dolly said.
