Top 15 Athletes with Plastic Surgery

It is almost expected of Hollywood’s stars to go under the knife and have cosmetic surgery, but it is also common for today’s athletes to get work done. These athletes spend an enormous part of their life in the public eye whether it is on the field of play, in an interview, photoshoot or even on social media. Many of them are vain creatures, and therefore opt for cosmetic surgery to improve their looks. Some athletes have been very open about their plastic surgery, whilst some will keep their lips sealed, that is if they are able to after their Botox injections.

In many cases professional athletes go under the knife not to improve their looks, but instead to repair them. The physical nature of sports means that athletes often sustain nasty facial injuries or other injuries that require surgery, and this is particularly common in sports such as hockey, rugby and boxing. You see many athletes in these professions with missing teeth, misaligned noses and cauliflower ear, and these can all be corrected with surgery.

Finally, some athletes will have surgery to improve their performance. The most notable example of this is female athletes having breast reduction surgery. Whilst this may disappoint some fans, many female athletes cite back pain and interference with their game and this can be changed with reduction surgery.

Cosmetic surgery seems to be more and more common in today’s day and age, and particularly in Hollywood. It is also in the sporting world where cosmetic surgery is becoming increasingly more common, and many athletes now go under the knife either to improve their looks, repair a ghastly injury or perhaps improve their performance.

The 1976 Olympic Decathlon gold medalist Bruce Jenner has undergone quite a transformation over the years, and he is now more famous for his multiple procedures instead of his Olympic triumph. It all started over 25 years ago, when Jenner had a nose job and partial facelift which did not turn out as planned. He then had further surgery to correct this, but much like tattoos, some people keep coming back for more. Jenner has confirmed that he has been looking to transition from a man to a woman, and over the years this has seen Jenner begin cross dressing, having surgery to flatten his Adam’s apple, have breast implants and finally confirm his transition to Diane Sawyer by telling her “I am a woman.” Bruce has not gone undergone gender reassignment surgery as of yet.
