Celebrities who regret cosmetic surgery like Bella Hadid – from Courteney Cox to Molly-Mae Hague

PRESSURE to look young, thin and beautiful often leads celebrities to go under the knife – but not all of them are happy with the results.

This week, Bella Hadid admitted her regret over having a nose job at 14 and wished she "kept the nose of my ancestors" as she "would have grown into it".

The supermodel, whose dad is Palestinian Jordanian and mum is Dutch, told Vogue: "I was the uglier sister… That’s really what people said about me."

Bella, now 25, joins a legion of other famous faces who wish they hadn't altered their appearances.

From bad boob jobs to facelifts gone wrong, when a celebrity's cosmetic surgery doesn't go to plan it's reported on across the world.

It led to The Sun's campaigner Had Our Fill last year, which led to lip filler adverts that target teens being banned by the UK's advertising watchdog.

But now as Bella exposes the pressure to conform to unrealistic beauty standards – we look back at the celebrities who regret having face and body-altering ops.

Katie Price

Surgery queen Katie, 43, estimates she’s had 24 boob jobs, three facelifts and lipo sessions. 

She travelled to Turkey for a body overhaul, including full-body liposuction, eye and lip lifts, liposuction under her chin, and fat injected into her bum.

Last year, she told The Sun: “Honestly, I’ve gone to Hell and back, it was horrific — ‘Oh my God I look like a monster out of a horror movie’.

“I just thought, ‘This is it, I’m going to die.' I was terrified of looking like a freak… a fake doll.

“I’ve woken up with holes and stitches all over my body. I look like I’ve got cat’s whiskers coming out of my nose and eyes.

"But I just want the old Katie back!”

However, the former Page-3 model had yet another boob job this year and was pictured show-off her swollen chest on holiday in Thailand with fiance Carl Woods.

Fans claimed it was Katie's biggest boob job to date, but the star said on Instagram: "They are not my biggest, my biggest are in a safe for sale for a million pounds."

Linda Evangelista

Last year, Canadian model Linda, 56, claimed a fat-melting procedure left her “deformed” due to a rare, adverse reaction. 

She told how CoolSculpting – a fat reduction procedure – had the opposite effect on her – making her fat cells expand and leaving her “permanently disfigured”, destroying her livelihood and sending her into a spiral of depression. 

Linda admitted to fans that she became a recluse after the op and supermodel pals praised her bravery for speaking out.

Cindy Crawford said: "Linda – your strength and true essence are forever recognisable and iconic! Bravo!"

And Helena Christensen added: "It would’ve taken immense courage and strength to write these words. I can honestly say that I broke down in tears reading this."

Courteney Cox

In 2017, Courteney told how she regretted using fillers and botox – and how she dissolved her injectables that year.

The US actress, now 57, explained how her reliance on jabs started to snowball as she got older.  

She said: “Well, what would end up happening is that you go to a doctor who would say, 'You look great, but what would help is a little injection here or filler there'. 

"So you walk out and you don’t look so bad and you think, no one noticed – it’s good. 

“Then somebody tells you about another doctor: 'This person’s amazing. They [did] this person who looks so natural.' 

“You meet them and they say, 'You should just do this'. 

“The next thing you know, you’re layered and layered and layered. You have no idea because it’s gradual until you go, 'Oh s***, this doesn’t look right.'”

Tara Reid

American Pie actress Tara told how she missed out on vital roles after a botched boob job and lipo on her tummy in the mid-2000s. 

Tara, 46, was left with a rippling stomach from a body contouring procedure and wonky breasts after surgery in 2004. 

She later said she'd asked the surgeon for B cups, but he gave her Cs, and told American mag Us Weekly: “My stomach became the most ripply, bulgy thing.

"I had a hernia, this huge bump next to my belly button. As a result, I couldn't wear a bikini. I lost a lot of work."

Tara has since had corrective surgery and is regularly photographed with her midriff on display.

Heidi Montag

The Hills star had a dramatic makeover on the show in 2010 – having 10 procedures including a nose job and a brow lift. 

Heidi, 35, boosted her boobs to F cups – but four years later she swapped them for smaller Cs. 

She told PEOPLE: "I couldn't conceptualise the weight of them in my body. "They felt like bowling balls on my chest. I felt inappropriate. 

“Guys would stare at me really creepily and felt they had the right to because I had such big boobs. 

“He told me they were falling through the bottom, and I got scared. It's super dangerous."

Victoria Beckham

Posh Spice told how she regretted her “stick-on” boob implants in the Noughties and had them removed. 

The 47-year-old told Allure: "I think I may have purchased them. I don't have them anymore. They got removed."

But Victoria – who denied having surgery at the time – told how she hoped fans would embrace their bodies.

She told British Vogue in 2017: “I should probably say, don’t mess with your boobs.

“All those years I denied it – stupid. A sign of insecurity. Just celebrate what you’ve got.”

Mickey Rourke

Mickey first found fame in the 80s in roles in movies Diner and 9 ½ weeks. 

But the actor, 69, said his dramatically different face was down to corrective surgeries after boxing messed him up. 

He told the Daily Mail: "Most of it was to mend the mess of my face because of the boxing, but I went to the wrong guy to put my face back together."

He also described how cartilage was taken from his ear to try to rebuild his nose. 

Molly-Mae Hague

Love Islander and influencer Molly-Mae told how she had filler dissolved from her face. 

The 22-year-old star started having lip filler when she was 17 and dabbled with chin filler too. 

In 2020, she decided to have the injectables painfully dissolved,

She said: "I feel like I'm still definitely going through the process of trying to make everything as natural as I possibly can.

“I made that many mistakes when I was younger. I'm genuinely still trying to correct them now.”

Leslie Ash

Men Behaving Badly actress Leslie made headlines when she debuted her "trout pout" in 2002. 

It was the second time Leslie, now 62, had the procedure but her lips were bodged when silicon was used by a dodgy doctor. 

She had corrective surgery which improved her smile but did not fully remove the chemical.

She told This Morning: “I thought it was a dermal filler that my body would just break down.

"But unbeknownst to me they used an industrial filler which got mixed up with my muscle. "Those are the complications that can happen."

Kylie Jenner

The reality star, 24, has built a business empire off her plump pout. 

But Kylie confessed she regretted plumping her lips at the age of 15 – and took it too far. 

In 2018, she had some of her filler dissolved in an attempt to look more natural. 

She told Allure: "Well, I definitely made my lips a little too big at one point. “I got excited and felt like I needed to do a lot. 

“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."

Chloe Ferry

When Chloe first appeared on Geordie Shore in 2015, she looked dramatically different. 

Since then the 26-year-old has had Botox, an eyebrow lift, two nose jobs, a boob job and a £50,000 procedure to put a defining line down her stomach. 

She says she regrets getting the expensive stomach surgery.
