Growing older gracefully can be hard for a lot of people. But it's even more of a challenge when you're in the public eye in an industry that equates beauty with youth and perfection. So, it's no wonder plenty of celebrities have had some work done -- sometimes even before they see their first wrinkle! -- to try to maintain or enhance their appearances. But not all are thrilled with the results. 

Well-known stars have been candid about their plastic surgery and cosmetic procedure regrets. Many wish they'd never dabbled in the art of reconstruction and share exactly why they have misgivings.

Take a look at these 15 celebs who wish they'd left their faces and bodies untouched.

    The former 90210 star and mom of five has been open about how much she regrets getting breast implants, as the augmentation has impacted her milk production.

    "Well, I got my boobs done in my early 20s and if I had known it would or could possibly impact production of milk, I would never have had them done," she told Good Morning America in 2011. 

  • Jessica Simpson

    Jessica Simpson doesn't need a single bit of work! Thankfully, she'll probably avoid this alteration going forward. 

    "I had that Restylane stuff. It looked fake to me. I didn't like that. But it went away in, like, four months. My lips are back to what they were. Thank God!" she told Glamour in 2006.

  • Farrah Abraham


    Teen Mom star Farrah Abraham Tweeted a photo of her botched lip injections with the caption: "Girlfriends don't say I didn't warn ya ! #BOTCHED California #ER #fixit"

    On an episode of The Doctors, the mom said she had an allergic reaction and felt happy just to be alive after the experience. Of course, that didn't stop her from wanting other procedures.

    "Sometimes you find yourself trying [to stop the aging process] and then you look at a picture of yourself and you go, 'Oh god, I look horrible,'" Courteney Cox said during an episode of Running Wild With Bear Grylls. "I have done things that I regret and luckily there are things that dissolve and go away. So that's good because it's not always been my best look."

    Reality show star Kim Kardashian wrote about her Botox misgivings in her blog after she had injections before even turning 30. 

    "I am not against Botox, and I would never judge anyone else for getting any kind of surgical or non surgical procedure, but I think when you're young there are other ways you can look after your skin….Botox just wasn't necessary for me at this age," she wrote.

  • Heidi Montag

    After she underwent multiple different surgeries, Montag, who is expecting her first child with her hubby, Spencer Pratt, ultimately had her breast implants reduced from F to C cups due to back and neck pain.

    In 2016, Montag told People, "I was in way over my head with the surgeries. I had no idea what I was getting into or that it was a lifelong commitment. It was very challenging, both physically, emotionally, spiritually, mentally, on my husband and on our lives."

And then you guys were like, 'Kylie, you need to chill.' And then I had to go back and have it fixed, and it was a crazy process. Thank God I didn't end up on Botched."

    Former Baywatch beauty Carmen Electra told Fabulous magazine that her breast implants turned out larger than she needed.

    "I had breast surgery over 10 years ago, taking me from a 32B to DD, which took a bit of time to get used to. I didn't want to go as big as that. It's nice that I don't have to wear a push-up bra anymore, but I could have left myself alone," she said. 

  • Gwyneth Paltrow

    Melanie Griffith opened up to Porter magazine about how much plastic surgery altered her appearance.

    "No, I didn't [realize] until people started saying, 'Oh my god, what has she done?!' I was so hurt. I went to a different doctor, and he started dissolving all of this s--t that this other woman doctor had put in. Hopefully, I look more normal now," she said.
