Awful Plastic Surgery: Celebrity Men Edition

All the speculation over who's had what done to which body part can get pretty tiring, Don't Miss
especially when it seems like only women are under scrutiny.  Frankly, things are still pretty rough for women in Hollywood: physical appearance is essential to one's career, so it makes sense that so many women are electing to have their faces and bodies sliced and diced.

But why would someone like Bruce Jenner get plastic surgery?

Plastic surgery's popularity is on the rise, including among men both young and not-so young.  There are plenty of celebrity males who look like they've made a few alterations to their faces--poor old MJ isn't alone anymore.

Insecurity is a bitch for both sexes.  The five scariest possibly-plastic faces:

5. Ray Liotta

Goodfellas actor Ray Liotta has vehemently denied he's had any work done.  I'd be inclined to believe him if he could only smile.

Maybe it isn't the fault of a cosmetic procedure, but there's definitely something wrong with his face that wasn't wrong ten years ago.

4. Wayne Newton
Wayne Newton first broke onto the music scene back in the early sixties with his hit, "Danke Schoen."

It's been over forty years.  So why, why, why does he look exactly the same, except a bit more like a penguin?  I blame it on Las Vegas.

A good-looking guy, Bruce was one of the best Wheaties box models in history.  Now he's famous for having raised reality douche Brody Jenner and being stepdad to Kim Kardashian and her sisters.  Despite his falling star, his face seems to be pulled up by some cosmic force.

Do you think his nose is still fully functional?

2. David Gest
Television producer David Gest became famous when he married Liza Minelli in 2002.  The couple split about a year and a half later, and made tabloids with their nasty divorce.  Little-known about Gest is that he was actually childhood friends with the Jackson family.

Gest was so close to the Jacksons, in fact, he chose to visit Michael Jackson's plastic surgeon around 1980 and have his nose shredded to bits, among other operations.

He quit the big screen in 1991 to return to his true love, boxing, and by the time he reappeared on the scene his face had definitely taken more than a few punches.

For those of you considering plastic surgery: it doesn't really matter how much money you shell out--you still run the risk of turning out like Ol' Stretch-Eyes Mickey.
