Curtis, Jamie Lee
Curtis has said, "I did it all but, you know what, it didn’t work. The fraud is it doesn’t work; it doesn’t work because there are complications, and I got them all. It doesn’t work because you still look in the mirror and you see the fraud of what you were trying to do."
Jamie Lee Curtis Blames Plastic Surgery for Addiction

Jamie Lee Curtis has been openly against plastic surgery (See Make Me Heal’s story on Jamie Lee Curtis’ Plastic Surgery). But now it seems the 49 year old star might have a new reason for hating it.
After undergoing eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) when she was 35, the True Lies actress became hooked on pain pills. She became so addicted, that she actually stole pills from her sister, Kelly.
Jamie blames her plastic surgeries, including liposuction and Botox, on the pressure in Hollywood to be beautiful and young and consequently blames her abuse of painkillers and alcohol on it as well:
“I attempted various types of plastic surgery, minutely but enough to stave off this encroaching middle-aged body. And every time I did, something went wrong. I felt misshapen, just not natural any more. I think it was a big stimulator of my drug abuse.”
She finally quit the drugs and alcohol after witnessing the toll it took on her daughter, Anne.
Now the actress is using her experience to provide guidance for others who struggle with the disease
Jamie Lee Curtis Calls Plastic Surgery A Fraud
Ordinarily when Make Me Heal hears rumors of 49-year old actress Jamie Lee Curtis going under the knife, the stories are variations of possible sex-change operations. Now, Jamie has still has not addressed the rumors of being born a male, but has openly admitted to having had plastic surgery in the past.
The 49-year-old actress has revealed she underwent a blepharoplasty surgery on her lower eyes when she was 35, after a cameraman told her she was too “puffy” for him to shoot, and she has had work done since, including some admitted liposuction and Botox. Make Me Heal calculates that the liposuction happened around the time she did her famous striptease in the film True Lies.
Although her career has continued to thrive, Jamie Lee Curtis isn’t pleased with the results of her cosmetic surgeries, saying “I did it all but, you know what, it didn’t work. The fraud is it doesn’t work; it doesn’t work because there are complications, and I got them all. It doesn’t work because you still look in the mirror and you see the fraud of what you were trying to do.”
Plastic surgeon Dr. John Di Saia says that some of the problems Jamie experienced could have been caused by her being too young for eyelid surgery, not having enough fat to remove for liposuction. Additionally, Jamie may have experienced complications from an admitted substance abuse problem in the past. People with addictions make for poor plastic surgery candidates and should stay away from the knife, as they are likely to have the wrong reasons to have plastic surgery and to be unhappy with the results.
Now, Jamie Lee Curtis says that women should grow old gracefully because people who do have some kind of plastic surgery rarely feel better about themselves afterwards. She says women considering plastic surgery need to think long and hard before engaging in an industry that sells “fraud” to make women think they will feel better about themselves after undergoing their procedures.
Make Me Heal is sympathetic that Jamie is not pleased with the results of her plastic surgeries and urges candidates to decide for themselves rather than follow the advice of celebrities, whether they are for or against plastic surgery. However, plastic surgery is not here to change your life on every level, nor treat emotional issues and make one feel better, as in the end it is treating your surface imperfections. As long as you know what you’re in for and have reasonable expectations of the outcomes and their impact on your life, you should not emerge as unhappy, disillusioned, and cheated as Jamie Lee Curtis feels.
