"If you Google my name, the worst plastic surgeries of all time, or whatever it is... They've compared me to Michael Jackson," Bruce once said on an episode of his reality show "Keeping Up With The Kardashians."
Both Bruce and Michael were called out for going too far. After undergoing a nose job and partial face-lift in 1984, Bruce's post-plastic surgery face has been ridiculed and attacked in the media.
He does look better now. But why does he still look strange? There are two major things that don't quite look right, but are very difficult to change surgically:
First, there is virtually no excess skin of his upper eyelids. This looks odd in a man his age. Like George Clooney, there should be some extra skin up there. He doesn't look as bad as Kenny Rogers, though. Second, his nose is very thin, looking almost effeminate. This is very tough to change, and would require cartilage and maybe even bone grafts from his ribs to correct. There is another option, though. I once saw a doctor inject fat into the nose to correct a scoop, and it actually worked!
If you ever watch the Keeping Up with the Kardashians show, you'll find that while Bruce may be the most surgical-looking, he is also the most normal person in the family!
