Michael Jackson’s Plastic Surgery

From the age of five Michael Jackson is a stage performer. A stage performer and pop star must have to look after his looks. Michael Jackson was a little bit more concerned about that. So, this great singer did plastic surgeries to his face. Plastic surgery on Micheal Jackson’s face was one of the most popular subject to gossip all over the world. He is the example of both glaring success and huge failure of that medical technology.

Super star Michael Jackson was always surrounded by an army of useless managers, agents and half doctors. After the huge success of “Thriller” album Jackson did a plastic surgery on his nose. He tried to change his African nose to a whiter one. It was noticed but this event did not create much sensational story in those good old days.

During the 80s when Jackson was on his mission to save the starving African children he did it again. It was the golden time of “We are the World” song. A surgery was done to redesign his nose and eyebrows to give him a much Caucasian look. Michael Jackson’s nose jobs were, at that time, a hot topic to public.

Within a few years he tried to change his face again. It was the time when he went for a big alteration. His skin color was changed to lifeless white. There were newly developed cheekbones. From a good looking black guy he converted into a ghostly figure. Not only that, he also became womanish. It is not very appreciated by his fans. He tried to fine tune that look to please his fans by more operations. It was told that he was taking ladies hormone to look better and keep his voice boyish.

Michael Jackson’s regular face surgery’s and taking of different type of medicines affected his health. Certain drugs and UV ray techniques were used by him to alter and fine tune his face again and again. Most of these things were done by people with questionable medical skill. It is because the super stars always get bad doctors, lawyers and PR personnel who are good at nothing but oiling his ego.

According to some, a lot of cutting and reshaping harmed his nose too much. There was nothing left on it. So, he tried to rebuild his nose again. Jackson face was also cut a bit to give him a wider smile. All of these operations went wrong eventually. His face lost natural look and he was compelled to covered himself with heavy makeup.

Michael Jackson is no more with us. We don’t know what had driven him so mad to change his look again and again. Michael Jackson’s plastic surgery episodes show the power and danger of that medical technology clearly.

      It's so sad about Micheal. He had so much self hatred...if only Papa Joe was less of an ego maniac, and more of a father, we'd still have Micheal with us. Good article, made me sad.

      The theory of Papa Joe is over hyped I think.

      I as a Black Man, feel kinda bad that he was ashamed to be black. Yes i said it. I hope people don't buy this "oh i had a skin disease" BS. He was ashamed to be black, point blank. The surgeries, skin whitening etc; And to top it off, no matter who much you change your face to look like something else, you are still a black man, so what's up with the kids? Why were they white? Well its obvious!

      Oh man don't be so rude! @DeMarcus. I think it was only for commercial success. He thought that a white man will be much more popular than a black one. America was and still is not a very fare place for the blacks or colored people, I think you know this.

      Michael Jackson, such a waste of talent, such a beautiful child to begin with. He never had a childhood, made to perform full time from a young age. Aside from the adulation from his audience, did he have the love necessary for a child's development?

      I guess not. Too much was expected of him, and he needed to be perfect for everybody, and he needed a perfect self-image. The easy availability of plastic surgery promised him physical perfection, and he got hooked. Sufficient was never enough. One cut after another, and he had no face left, and that poor broken face could not be fixed. Was he ever happy? I think he was the saddest young star ever.

      Michael Jackson searched for happiness which he never got not after a lot of plastic surgeries and not even after embracing Islam...Thank for your valuable comment @mizjo

      I believe Michael Jackson many surgeries was due in part to a mental condition called Body dysmorphic disorder also known as BDD. Many medical professionals believed he may have suffered from this condition. He was obviously not happy with himself and sought to fix invisible flaws. Very typical behavior of a person who suffers from BDD. Michael did not bleach his skin to become white, that is false. He had a skin disorder called vitiligo. check out my hub about him. I think you'll find it interesting. Any way great article. Voted up!

      I would love to go undercover as a black man. I could use my blackness to get more productivity put of black employees. Help white people get more black votes etc.
