We like to think of the rich and famous as flawless – at least, they would like us to think they are… They are, right? Actually, they are anything, but. Ironically, these people who make their living off of being beautiful (Um, can someone say the Kardashians?) typically end up doing everything they can to hide their incredibly human flaws.
Most think of celebrities as abusing plastic surgery but many do not realize the variety of other embarrassing types of surgeries these very real celebrities undergo and would be horrified if their public found out about them. So what starts out our list of the top five incredibly embarrassing surgeries our beloved, but not-so-perfect celebrities would hate for us to know about?
#5 – Hair Transplant Surgery – OK, OK, this is borderline cosmetic. With all the fake bosoms floating around Hollywood, it’s about time someone gave the men a hard time. And not just any men – beautiful men have had a little work done, too.
For instance, heart throbs: Matthew McConaughey, Jeremy Piven and the incredibly dreamy Jude Law. Sure, nothing’s been proven. We’ve seen the photos, though, and we ask you to be the judge.
#4 – Excessive Sweating Surgeries – Gross. Of course, one would think that these perfect, photo-shopped celebrities don’t even have the ability to sweat; however, all evidence to the contrary. Indeed they do sweat and sometimes it’s a little more than we can handle.
Did you know that there’s a surgery for excessive sweating? It’s called a hyperhidrosis surgical treatment and it’s probably been used and abused by nearly every celeb to walk the red carpet. Botox injections are inserted into the armpits to obstruct the sweat from coming out.
Beautiful women such as the sixth richest woman in entertainment – Matthew McConaughey, Jeremy Piven – who has based her career on her beautiful pop voice and seriously hot body could do with some of those, along with her beautiful entertainment peer – the lovely but sweaty miss Scarlette Johanson. They could both do with one of those, don’t you think?
#3 –Colonic – With the incredible health craze that is going on these days, it’s important to take care of the bowels – at least that’s what many of the most well-known celebs have to say. Trendy and un-intrusive colon cleanses have been promoted shamelessly by some of the most glamorous Hollywood queens such as Paris Hilton, Beyonce, Gwyneth Paltrow and even Oprah.
While they are not so shy to tell about their trendy colon drinks, they are much more tight-lipped about any colonic procedures they may or may not have had. Certainly celebs get these embarrassing colon surgeries; however, unlike the colon cleanse drinks, they are kept on the down-low.
#4 –Urinary Incontinence Surgery – Did you think you were the only one who still pees their pants long after potty training? You’re in good company, my friend. The incredibly famous Kris Jenner along with about one in three women is right there with you in the fight against urinary incontinence.
There are several causes for urinary incontinence ranging from pregnancy, having had multiple pregnancies, high birth weight in newborns, genetics, smoking, etc. Any celeb whose undergone surgery to help keep their pants dry certainly isn’t shouting it from the rooftops. And until Kris Jenner stops wetting herself on her national hit reality show, it’s a safe bet that she hasn’t gotten around to getting it done just yet, either.
#5 – Last but not least, there’s hemorrhoid surgery. It’s estimated that over half of the population will have dealt with hemorrhoids in one form or another by the age of fifty. From there, the numbers sky rocket. So why is this incredibly common problem so embarrassing? It just is. That’s why when word gets out about a celeb that had to get a hemorrhoid surgery it’s kind of a big deal.
How does word get out about such an embarrassing ailment, you ask? In the case of famous American rapper, Lil’ Wayne, it was scattered all throughout his court documents that his jail sentence had to be suspended until his raging case of hemorrhoids could be surgically taken care of. This is one hemorrhoid treatment that will never be forgotten as it tops our top list of most embarrassing surgeries for celebs.
