Mickey Rourke: Before and After Plastic Surgery
Years of boxing took a toll on actor Mickey Rourke’s face. In an effort to recapture his former looks (left), he decided to let a plastic surgeon have a go at it (right).
“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,” he told The Daily Mail in 2009. “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.”
He’s continued to undergo procedures in an attempt to correct the botched job.
