Beauty standards in Hollywood have always been somewhat distorted. The chances of getting a role, media attention or ultimate success, especially as a woman, quite often depends on that perfect "10" body image. Many female celebrities strive to attain an image that garners the most attention possible. Wearing clothes that accentuates the cleavage particularly is a good way of doing that, and the more anti-gravity they appear to be, the more famous they usually become.
The fact is that most men love breasts - large, voluptuous, and the perkier the better - and because of this women tend to go to extreme lengths to enhance their breasts, especially in tinsel town, where nowadays it seems sex appeal is more important than talent. Unfortunately, breast enhancement surgery, like other plastic surgeries, doesn't always guarantee success. No matter how much money a celebrity may have, they don't always go as planned, and often enough the damage is irreversible. So many things can go wrong when it comes to breast augmentation, whether it's a scarred under-boob, visible veins, breasts that are too far apart or too close together, etc. Whatever happened with being happy with the body you have?
Here are our 12 worst looking celebrity breast implants:
12 LeAnn Rimes
LeAnn Rimes has been in the spotlight since she topped the charts with her hit song “Blue” at the age of 13. Since then her body has always been scrutinized over the years, mainly for her then somewhat “plump” appearance. Now the country singer is quite lean and appears to have undergone a not-so-perfect breast augmentation. "If she has implants, it's not a good job," says Dr. Stevens. "The breast is falling," she may have the implant on top of the muscle," says Dr. Stevens, which works for some patients and not for others.
11 Christina Aguilera
When Christina Aguilera rose to fame with her single “Genie in a Bottle”, she was the latest, hottest, young blonde bombshell to hit the music scene since Britney Spears. She kept topping the charts with one hit after another. During the height of her new found fame it didn't take Aguilera too long to go under the knife and get her breasts filled. Instead of having the incision on the nipple like most breast augmentations, she opted for the armpit incision which unfortunately left her with a large scar under her armpit.
When we first heard of Jewel, she soon stole our hearts with her mega hit "Who Will Save Your Soul" and soon after she began topping charts around the world, we learnt about how she and her mother spent quite a lot of time living in a van because they were so broke, which as a result made them homeless. However, clearly that isn't the case for the beautiful singer anymore, as she definitely could afford to receive a boob job. Unfortunately for her it wasn't a very good one, as her breasts appear to be jagged and crooked.
9 Tara Reid
Poor Tara Reid has had unfortunate luck when it comes to botched plastic surgeries, whether it was from a bad liposuction or a botched boob job. What's even more unfortunate for the actress is that she was a girl that probably didn't need any kind of plastic surgery to look beautiful and now Reid is left with a body full of strange lumps. The result of her breast enhancement alone has left her with lopsided, dangling breasts with nipples aimed at her arms.
8 Vivica A. Fox
Vivica Fox is without a doubt a beautiful and voluptuous actress with a tall and wide frame, so having large breasts should be an appealing asset to her body. However, her breasts now seem extremely unnatural. Clearly, judging by all the pictures she poses for, we can see that she loves to show off her cleavage and she probably paid a good amount of money for it, but if you look closely you can see strange lumps in the low cut dresses she wears.
7 Bethenny Frankel
It seems like being a “Real Housewife” like Bethenny Frankel means making sure almost every body part is fake, and we can see from most of the photos of her circulating the internet that Frankel has taken that idea to heart. She appears to be a prime example that putting extremely large breasts on a woman with next to no body fat is an awful idea. Her breasts look like two Siamese oranges wrongfully separated on the outside of her chest. Bigger is not always better and especially in this case.
6 Paula Abdul
Paula Abdul's once voluptuous and well crafted cleavage appears to have taken two giant steps back, just like her singing career did in the late '90s. Looking at the photos that tend to focus in on her breasts, it looks as though she has old implants. Perhaps all she needs is to "Rush Rush" back into a surgeon's office for some much needed breast rejuvenation with another enhancement surgery, but it seems as though Abdul also has a form of Pectus excavatum, a deformity that is located on the wall of the chest.
5 Victoria Beckham
Victoria Beckham is known as one of the most stylish, petite and glamorous of The Spice Girls. But Beckham's breast implant surgery was the farthest thing from glamorous. In fact, it was probably enough to give any legit plastic surgeon nightmares for years. Her implants looked like two giant oranges sitting on her chest, and it was a very noticeable and significant change in her appearance. Since her unappealing breast enhancement she has had the implants removed and reverted to a more subtle look.
4 Donatella Versace
Donatella Versace is definitely no stranger to altering her appearance, she's pretty much had every kind of body enhancement possible, from Botox to fillers to enhancements as well as different lifts. Unfortunately for the Italian fashion designer, the work done on her body is nowhere near as attractive as her clothing line. The fact is that beauty fades over time and breast implants stay the same year after year, and as a result poor Donatella has been left with these massive implants that look ridiculously fake in comparison to the rest of her aging body.
3 Courtney Love
Courtney Love's breasts have about as many characteristics as her diverse personality. The always controversial actress and musician appears to have undergone breast augmentation, but definitely not the kind anyone should pay for, much less flaunt. They appear to be big, wide, perky and sit around her armpits. Unfortunately for her they aren't structured well with the rest of her body. Courtney had her breast implants removed back in 2002 and decided to bring her implants home with her, but unfortunately her dog thought they were a tasty treat and ended up dying, either from ingesting the mixture inside of the implants or by choking on them.
2 Tori Spelling
Tori Spelling has gone on record a number of times over the years about how much she regrets getting her initial breast surgery, especially because of the very noticeable crooked appearance of her cleavage. Besides the unflattering way her breasts look, the breast enhancement surgery also left her with a reduced ability to produce milk when she became a mother. Even though she has regretted her breast job for over 20 years now, Spelling has yet to have her implants removed for fear of her boobs turning into that "flat-pancake" look.
1 Coco Austin
Coco Austin, famous for Ice Loves Coco, a reality show featuring her and husband Ice-T, is all about cosmetic surgery. Looking at her it's safe to assume that she goes for the "bigger is better" approach to body enhancements. However, Coco is probably the number one example that proves bigger doesn't always mean better. She's had both her breasts and her butt pumped up so much they appear to be close to the same size. At just 135 lbs, enhancing your breasts to a size 34 E isn't very proportional to say the least.
