American producer and television personality David Gest is perhaps best known for his close relationships to big stars which helped him make a name for himself. Gest was famously married to Liza Minelli for a while and was a close friend of international superstar Michael Jackson. Together they produced the highest rated musical special in television history, in which he reunited Michael Jackson with the Jackson Five.
His friendship with Michael Jackson, as well as his time on screen was enough to convince him to get some work done, and he ended up getting quite a lot. Gest has had multiple facelifts, a brow lift, Botox injections, and had fat suctioned from his chin to create a more defined jawline. He has gone on record to say that he regrets going overboard with cosmetic surgery and that the cost, which is estimated at $20,000, was bankrupting him.
La Toya Jackson - Unknown
La Toya is probably the least famous sister of the legendary Jackson family. Like her sister, Janet, and her brother, Michael, she got her start in The Jacksons 5 and had a recording career. In the late 80s and early 90s, La Toya posed for Playboy magazine, allegedly to promote her memoir, which was titled La Toya: Growing Up in the Jackson Family.
Sadly, La Toya has had so much work done to her face that her, “nose has collapsed, just like her brother Michael’s did.” Sources close to her claim that she has been in denial about appearance for many years, and blames allergies for her breathing problems.
Caitlyn Jenner - (Rumored) $5 Million
Probably the most famous transgender woman in the world, Caitlyn Jenner, became famous under the name Bruce Jenner as an athlete and television personality. However, her popularity rose to new heights when she announced that she would be transforming from a man into a woman, which is what she always felt like on the inside. The transition allegedly cost Jenner $5 million.
This life-changing transformation began with some small steps. In the 1980s and 90s, Jenner went through a couple of rhinoplasties and laser hair removal procedures. In January 2017, Jenner went through cosmetic and sex reassignment surgery. She underwent about a dozen surgeries to her face and body, which took over ten hours in total.
Vivica Fox - (Rumored) $26,000
Vivica A. Fox got her start on soap operas Days of Our Lives and The Young and the Restless in the late 1980s. In the decades since, she has had plenty of memorable roles, most recently on hit show Empire. She has always been a beautiful woman, but as someone who has been in the television industry for over 30 years, she knows what it feels like to grow older, while new and young actresses come to Hollywood every day.
In order to keep herself looking young, it is believed that Fox has undergone several cosmetic surgeries. She has apparently had work done on her chest, as seen in the picture. She has also undergone Botox and lip injections and is suspected of having had a nose job. It is estimated that the work she had done, set her back about $26,000.
Holly Madison - (Rumored) $32,000
Playmates as a whole are a beautiful bunch, but even among them, Holly Madison’s beauty stands out. Madison has undergone cosmetic procedures on her face and breasts and she claims that those changes helped her get what she wanted in life.
“Living with Hef brought down my self-esteem a lot,” Madison said to Life & Style. “I was comparing myself to the other girls … You have to look a certain way at the mansion. Plastic surgery made it easier for me to get things I wanted in my career. Without it, I wouldn’t be where I am today. My nose photographed really big in front of my face. If I wanted to do anything in the entertainment industry, I needed to get it fixed.”
