Jennifer Grey, the American actress, is probably best known for the role in Dirty Dancing where she starred as Frances ‘Baby’ Houseman with Patrick Swayze in 1987.
Grey’s career has never quite hit the same heights since she had a well-publicized rhinoplasty which went dramatically wrong in the early 1990s.
Before & After
There does not seem to be any dispute as to whether Jennifer Grey has had plastic or cosmetic surgery or not.Other stars deny or fail to admit what they might have had done – ‘has Kim Kardashian had plastic surgery’ is one question that always seems to find an audience.
However, Kim’s step-father Bruce Jenner, is quite open about his surgery (see Bruce Kardashian’s cosmetic surgery).
Following her ‘nose job‘ to correct a protruding bump, Jennifer Grey even admitted that close friends did not recognize her after the operation.
“I went into the operating room a celebrity and came out anonymous. It was like being in a witness protection program or being invisible.”Her rhinoplasty forced her to consider changing her name in an effort to relaunch her career.
In the end, she remained Jennifer Grey and in 1999, in a sitcom by ABC called It’s Like You Know, she played herself poking fun at herself in a storyline about her nose job.
Jennifer Grey’s experience certainly goes down as an example of celebrity plastic surgery gone wrong.
