David Gest Plastic Surgery Before and After Facelift Pictures

David Gest says that he was encouraged to have plastic surgery by his close friend Michael Jackson, but its not the late legend’s fault that the results were so bad.
David Gest is best known for his relationship with the Jackson family, and as a producer for The Jackson 5. This American producer became known on UK television when he appeared on the reality competition program I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! Today, he is also known for his strange plastic surgery. The downright scary results of his cosmetic surgery work have left him looking like a completely different person. He seems to have almost been disfigured after going under the knife!

It’s clear that David Gest had very extensive plastic surgery done on his face. He has been left with a strange result that is nowhere near natural! For a while there he looked pretty aged and tired. After a facelift, his face was left looking far too tight to be natural. The bags under his eyes, and the loose skin around his mouth have disappeared entirely, which points to a facelift and possibly even eyelid surgery. The problem is that after taking away the natural look of his face, he has been left looking strained and with limited motion in his face.
In addition to the facelift, he also got Botox injections, which have made the skin look strained and bloated. Areas like his forehead and cheeks are far too smooth. The waxy, shiny look he’s been left with screams of bad plastic surgery!

Finally, David Gest has also clearly had a rhinoplasty procedure done. His nose which was once thick and bulbous at the tip, has now become too thin and narrow. The tip has been refined to a point, and the nostrils tucked in. This is not how his natural nose looked, and of course the result has turned out looking unnatural!

“It was my idea to put in a clef chin and cheek bones – not Michael’s. Sometimes when you are young you are foolish and you get carried away. I remember I was looking in the mirror in an office building when I was with Band of Gold singer Freda Payne. I was mortified and almost fainted. I had the cheekbones removed a week later. I’ve come to realize that it’s not what’s on the outside, but it’s what’s on the inside that counts.”

It’s nice that David Gest has spoken openly about his plastic surgery mistakes and seems to have learned from them.

Dr. Paul S. Nassif, a facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon and a rhinoplasty specialist in Beverly Hills, California, says, “It is clear David Gest had some work done in the past, and may benefit from having subtle revisions performed to his previous surgeries to create a more natural appearance. “

Board certified Manhattan plastic surgeon Dr. David Shafer says, “It is definitely not the most flattering photo of David Gest.  His eyebrows appear unnaturally peaked, hairline looks unnatural and midface unbalanced.”
Sometimes it takes celebs a shockingly long time to figure out relatively obvious stuff. Okay to be fair, sometimes it takes me a really long time too. But I don’t splash my face all over the tabloids (much as I try, they keep ignoring me), so I can at least keep my stupidity to myself. Mostly. Although it took him a hell of a long time to get to the realization, David Gest, perpetually surprised ex-husband of Liza Minnelli, admits he regrets his decision to go under the knife. Though I’m guessing it’s more like knives.
David Gest regrets going under the knife. The reality star had a nose job, facelift, cheek implants and was given a cleft chin in 1981.

"I’ve never thought of myself as handsome,’ he says. ‘I can’t bear to look in the mirror. I was an idiot to have plastic surgery – there was nothing wrong with my nose. But nobody could have stopped me at the time. I was a foolish kid."

David, now 55, says appearing on I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! in 2006 helped him accept his appearance.

"It is the best thing I ever did,’ he says. ‘I finally realised that people liked me. I guess people saw the real me and realised I wasn’t just a freak in sunglasses. I get mobbed in the street by fans now. It’s crazy, but I love it."
