When it comes to plastic surgery, the risks can be severe. Permanent pain, disfigurement due to scarring or asymmetry, paralysis, or even death can occur when plastic surgery goes wrong. Unfortunately, celebrities are not immune to these risks. From Jocelyn Wildenstein to Jennifer Grey, these celebs have experienced some of the worst plastic surgery outcomes of all time.

Khloé Kardashian, Tara Reid and Janice Dickinson are just a few of the celebrities who have admitted to going overboard with cosmetic surgery procedures. Donatella Versace has also undergone a series of surgeries since the 1990s. Centers for Disease Control issued an alert after 19 women in five states developed serious mycobacterial wound infections after cosmetic procedures in the Dominican Republic.

Plastic surgeons and medical boards have long warned against traveling abroad for risky cosmetic procedures without doing proper research, but some patients still take risks.
