Hollywood isn’t just about big budget blockbusters, Oscar-worthy performances, and the most beautiful people on earth. It’s also about relationships, cheating scandals, and a hard partying lifestyle. However, it truly wouldn’t be Hollywood without the most beautiful people going under the knife.
Cosmetic surgery is a big part of Hollywood with several world-famous celebs having all kinds of work done. In fact, at one time, it seemed like every single celeb was changing something they didn’t like. There certainly are a lot of reasons a person would chose to have a surgery of that type. Regardless, it’s the celeb’s choice to make such changes, and nobody is passing judgment on them. In some cases, the celebs really do come out looking and feeling better. Other times, it’s actually ruined the careers of some promising talent or killed the career of a legend. Some celebs have actually gone overboard with the plastic and, other times, were victims of a surgery gone wrong. It’s very obvious that they’ve made physical changes even when they deny it. Then, there are the celebs that had such subtle changes that it’s almost impossible to tell. Some of the most beautiful people in Hollywood went under the knife and nobody even noticed. This is in sharp contrast to several other celebs that just couldn’t stop after their first surgery. Here is a look at 7 Celebs You Didn’t Know Went Under the Knife and 8 That Are Obvious.

She admitted that growing up, she put a lot of importance on appearance. She noted that the procedures started slowly with “a little injection here or filler there.” She said, “You have no idea (how it really looks) because it’s gradual until you go ‘Oh s*** this doesn’t look right.’” She has since let several fillers dissolve and is trying to go back to looking as natural as possible. She went on to say, “I feel better because I look like myself. I think that I now look more like the person that I was. I hope I do.”
