This is a plastic surgery disaster story – not just because it went completely wrong, but also for what Mickey Rourke lost. Plastic surgery ruined his ‘once’ good looks that stole many a maiden’s heart, back in the 80’s. As an actor, Mickey’s charming looks were distinctly pleasing. Later on, he left the glamour industry for a brief stint with a professional boxing career. That phase of Mickey’s life literally shattered his handsome looks. He broke his nose several times and took a heavy blow to his face, which broke his cheek bones into pieces.
Has Mickey Rourke had plastic surgery ?
Years later, Mickey stepped back into his acting career and had quite a good time with hit movies like Iron Man 2, Sin city and The Wrestler. However, the face that we saw in classic noir Angel Heart had changed over the years filled with his boxing career. In an attempt to revive his once pleasing looks, Mickey decided to undergo plastic surgery. But as he himself says; ““Most of [the surgery] was to mend the mess of my face because of the boxing, but I went to the wrong guy to put my face back together.”

That ill-fated decision had consequences Mickey would not have imagined before he went under the knife. He had a new face – not only was it unnatural, most of the procedures went wrong and he had to have corrective surgery to keep the damage under control. However, Mickey has always admitted to his plastic surgery experiments with a lot of remorse. He spoke to The Daily mail in 2009 about the botched job and said; “I had my nose broken twice. I had five operations on my nose and one on a smashed cheekbone. I had to have cartilage taken from my ear to rebuild my nose and a couple of operations to scrape out the cartilage because the scar tissue wasn’t healing properly.”
It is unfortunate, but definitely a warning to those celebrities who are planning on going under the knife. Choose your beauty surgeon carefully!
