For No Good Reason – Unnecessary Celeb Plastic Surgeries

By and large, it seems positive self-esteem is no match for the narrow-minded ideals of beauty unleashed on the American psyche 24-7. Especially with so many black celebrities going under the knife routinely. Most of these women were attractive, talented prior to plastic surgery, which suggests that the operations aren’t necessarily to become more beautiful, but more, “other.” Of course, when you’ve got the money and the excuse that everyone else is doing it, a nip here, or tuck there, hardly seems out of the question.

Here’s a recap of some of the expensive attempts to buy self esteem from a plastic surgeon:

    that side by side comparison of Naomi is a joke right? The “after” pic is a photo of her in her late teens and the “before” pic is much more current (within the last five years). Doesn’t even make any sense. Naomi has never altered the perfection that is her temple.

  • Love_Sexy

    Nothing wrong with getting plastic surgery however if you do it make sure you get a good doctor…..Some of the work I have seen has been down right horrific and alot of people have went overboard with it.

  • Greenmonster

    i’m ugly…what these celeb types are doing is a shame. they would not be famous if they didn’t have looks to go along with their talent. either they are not listening or someone is giving them some bad advice.

  • Ifuaskme2

    I don’t see it for Naomi, Tyra or Kimora. Those are simply makeup tricks that makes noses appear smaller. Kelly needed it. She had none before

    • Ms Ninarose

      I agree. Can’t see it Tyra and Kimora and Naomi and Kimora. You’d be amazed at what makeup can do. I watched a Oprah episode where her makeup artist made her nose looked thinner. Genius!

  • Ifuaskme2

    LMAO. Audition to be a white woman. Priceless.

    Well, I know with Tyra and Kimora, the modeling industry wasn’t really into taking girls who weren’t white around the time they were rising up, probably why they got nose jobs  (for more Euro-looking features) As for Lil Kim…Why? Just why? She’s starting to look really ridiculous :( 

  • iking821

    I HIGHLY doubt tyra banks has had any surgery. Doubt her mama woulda let that happen

  • iGOTswaqq:-)

    I’m sorry but Kelly DESPERATELY needed the breast implants before she just looked awkward

    • limesandcoconuts

      I understand the breast implants, especially on Kelly. It’d be hard not to feel like a little girl otherwise.

    It’s a nice place for black white sing’les, to interact with each other…no bounds or extremes in front of true love.

  • SimplyComplex_87

    ashamed of their blackness…so sad.

  • Lover of lovers

    These rich people are more messed up than us ‘regular’ people ti sure shows that money can’t buy you happiness or confidence. Lil kim looks like a monster, the funny thing is none of those surgeries helped in enhancing their beauties more of the opposite, totally waste of everything tchiiiiiiippppppppp

  • Prissy

    I’d like to get rhinoplasty .

    • Girliusmaximus

      I wanna reduce my breasts. Tired of buying bras for $40 and $50 bucks…

      • Vee

        I know the feeling Girlisumaximus. I pay between $35-$44 for a good supportive bra.

      • Guestest

        OMG!! Same here!

    • limesandcoconuts

      Prissy, if you’re a black woman why would you change your nose? Too look less African? and if so why? What’s wrong with beautiful African features our ancestors gave us?

  • Wow

    There is no such thing as “unnecessary” plastic surgery. If the person feels better about his/herself after having some work done, then it is necessary. Why live your life miserable with your reflection? After I complete my job training (which requires a degree of physicality), I’m planning to have my nose contoured/thinned and my breast augmented.

    • Guest

      There’s a difference between people who are uncomfortable with one or two aspects of their features & want plastic surgery and self-hating people that use plastic surgery to erase their “ethnic-ness.” 

  • Yes, I’m that Leah

    Such a turn off….so fake.

  • jayluv

    Elise looks like she got some needed rest and a good body makeup. the face the same, the neck the same and the body. no the boobs was not done…if she did…smh…she got robbed.

  • jayluv

    Tyra and Kimora looks like two baboons azz with all that makeup on.

    • dddooonnnttt

      Looks like Tyra rubbed some excess off her eyelids and put it on Kimoras cheeks.

    • JENNY JONES!!!!

      THAT’S NOT KIMORA!!!! THE EYES & MOUTH DON’T LIE. LOOKS LIKE THEY JUST GRABBED A PIC OF TYRA AND A PART ASIAN GIRL THEN CALLED HER KIMORA. GTFOH!!!………JENNY JONES!!!!

  • jayluv

    Naomi Campbell looks the same other than weight loss and the obvious makeup on her nose….come on!

    • Brunia

      join u youre right ! she s the same

  • universal

    sometimes its unbelieveable the amount of black women in hollywood who have gotten some type of plastic surgery. it is almost all of them in some kind of way. this list could go on for hours if they wanted to, really! but i gotta say, tyra and kimora are some chocolate goddesses, my goodness!

    • Martys

      every single white woman in Hwood has had plastic surgery including that ho Kim K & her ugly sisters.

      • dddooonnnttt

        So has most of the black women. It’s an industry standard at this point.

      • Native Gear

        Why does someone have to always bring up, “White women do it too”, as if they are the standard for every decision that we make. Sounds immature.

        • limesandcoconuts

          Yeah, everyone does plastic surgery, but what’s troubling is how black women gravitate towards changing their african noses. That’s a racial issue for sure.
          Fox, Banks and Lee look much better before than after. What will they do when they have babies that look like their old selves? THat’s a hell of a reminder.

          That’s why Michael Jackson adopted those babies; he didn’t want to take the chance of looking back at his old (beautiful) black face even if it was a few shades lighter. Easeir to pay those white girls to have babies with some othr non Black brown skinned somebody.

      Goooodness graaacious, I just HAD to reply. Youre literally on every post begging for some love…for pete’s sake just pay to join eharmony or something. This isnt a dating website.  

      • Guest

        This is a spammer, not someone actually looking for love.

  • Root truth

    How can you forget Kim Kardashian? She went from Armenian princess to Elizabeth Taylor. Lots of work!

  • Jaine Blaize

    I didn’t know about Elise Neal but I don’t think her’s looks too bad. Neither does Kelly Rowland. I think that it was a good move for both of them. However, I did notice that you left out Jada Pinkett. Something happened to her jaws (cheek implants) and her nose. She was already pretty so I have no idea why she did that. Now her cheekbones look awy too high like that ventriloquist dummy from back in the days (Madam).

    • Olivia

      Wow…you took it all the way back to MADAM!!!!

      LOL.

      Anyway I think Jada’s looks could be attributed to a loss of too much body fat.  She doesn’t seem to have any fat anywhere on her body which makes her look too “hard” in the face.

      Elise Neal’s boobs look the same size and Naomi’s changes look more like good makeup.

      Such a shame what happened to Vivica.

  • NYC Gal

    You needed to add that Tyra & Kimora both had their boobs, cheeks done and had liposuction.  Vivica had her boobs done also.  Kelly had her nose done.  Mariah had her boobs and nose done plus liposuction.  Halle had her nose, boobs, cheeks done and liposuction.

    • Guest

      and how do you know this? did you perform the work for them?

      • NYC Gal

        Just look at old photos of them and you can see the difference.

    • Guest

      Are you trying to say that Tyra had her breasts enlarged? SMH. I guess folks can’t tell the real from the fake these days.
