Who does not know Mickey Rourke? He was probably one of the most handsome actors back in the 1980s and ladies surely cannot forget that seducing part as he played as a successful banker in 9½ Weeks. He also played many notable roles during the 1990s era, such as Animal Factory, Buffalo ’66, and The Last Outlaw. In 2000s, he came as one of main roles in Frank Miller’s Sin City and played as the main villain in Iron Man 2. However, somehow, his talent was sort of shadowed by the photos of Mickey Rourke plastic surgery before and after.
If we should talk about the most devastating celebs plastic surgeries, seeing those pictures of Mickey Rourke plastic surgery before and after, it goes without a doubt that the actor’s surgery is one of them. Ah, remember that he was considered as one of the best looking actors? He had that bad guy look girls would not resist easily, reminding us of James Dean and even The Godfather’s Marlon Brando—only in younger version.
So, what did actually happen here? What made the pictures of Mickey Rourke plastic surgery before and after look so differently? Even though many claimed that the actor’s change of look was since his hot-and-cold relationship with Carre Otis, people could notice that it was started during the 1990s. That was especially true considering Rourke’s brief—but sort of great—career in boxing. Yes, there was no that good looking boy anymore. Instead, he appeared with swollen lips and taut skin.
Then, Rourke said that the reason why he went under the knife was due to his injuries caused by boxing damage. In 2009, Rourke told Daily Mail that he had to have his cartilage taken from his ear so the doctor could rebuild his nose. Some operations were also undertaken to scrape out his cartilage since the scar tissue refused to heal properly. “That was one of the most painful operations,” he added. Well, seeing the Mickey Rourke plastic surgery before and after pictures, we could imagine how painful the surgeries were.
As we compare the pictures of Mickey Rourke plastic surgery before and after, we can see that the actor had certain facelift in addition to upper eyelid lift. It appears like hair transplant was undertaken too. What the facelift had done to him cost the sideburns. However, it seems like Rourke did his plastic surgery not without any regret. He lately added that he went to the wrong guy—that’s what he regret the most.
