Mickey Rourke is an American actor most known for achieving fame in the '80s in such blockbuster films as Diner (1982), Rumble Fish (1983) and the erotically-charged drama 9 1/2 Weeks (1986) alongside Kim Basinger. Rourke more recently found critical acclaim for his starring role in the film The Wrestler (2008) wherein Rourke portrays a down-on-his-luck, past-his-prime wrestler struggling to make a living. Rourke was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Actor for his role in The Wrestler. Once a handsome leading actor ladies' man, Rourke has recently attracted tabloid press for his horribly disfigured face and grotesque appearance. Rourke's facial disfigurement appears to be the recent of several botched facelifts. One of Rourke's facelifts appears to have pulled the skin on Rourke's face back so far that the skin with sideburns is removed. In addition, it seems that the star has gotten a chin implant, cheek implants, several rhinoplasty (nose job) procedures, and a lower lip implant. Rourke is also rumored to have received an unfortunate-looking hair transplant to help fight male baldness patterns.

Mickey Rourke's Plastic Surgery History
Unlike his co-nominees, 52-year old Mickey Rourke has had more than enough plastic surgery for all of the Best Actors. Nominated for his role in The Wrestler, Mickey has gone under the knife several times, to the count of at least one facelift, possible chin, cheek and lower lip implants and possible multiple nose jobs. All plastic surgeons and Make Me Heal agree, the best thing Mickey can do now is to stay away from plastic surgery to ensure his bizarre appearance doesn’t get any worse. (See Make Me Heal’s story on Mickey Rourke’s plastic surgery).
Make Me Heal is pleased to see some of these veteran actors finally getting recognized for their work and looks forward to seeing how all the men clean up for the red carpet.
No More Plastic Surgery For Mickey Rourke
The actor Mickey Rourke, recently stared in the film "The Wrestler", is notorious for having quite a bit of bad plastic facial surgeries.
The recent film The Wrestler was a big hit with critics and viewers alike, earning the two big names in the big picture, Mickey Rourke and Marisa Tomei, Oscar nominations. Make Me Heal takes a look back at the unlikely pair’s plastic surgery and also looks ahead to see what could be done to help their looks in the future.
Before becoming an actor, 52-year old Mickey Rourke was a boxer. Since changing careers, Mickey has also changed his face, becoming a notorious example of bad plastic surgery. In the past, Mickey has had several procedures, including at least one overly tight facelift, possible chin, cheek and lower lip implants and possible multiple nose jobs, in part to correct damage from his boxing past. (See Make Me Heal’s story on Mickey Rourke’s bad plastic surgery).
Although his appearance contrasts sharply with that of most handsome leading men, Mickey managed to perform well enough in The Wrestler to win a Golden Globe and be nominated for an Oscar in the Best Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role category.
To help improve his looks for his upcoming roles, including Iron Man 2, coming next year, Make Me Heal asked plastic surgeons how Mickey could best improve his botched plastic surgeries.
Plastic surgeon Dr. Sherrell J. Aston says, “Mickey Rourke did a terrific job in The Wrestler. He should use some of his best wrestling holds on anyone who comes near him for any cosmetic procedure for the foreseeable future including injectables of all kinds.”
Dr. Paul S. Nassif, a Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon and Rhinoplasty Specialist in Beverly Hills, Calif., said, “Obviously, Mickey Rourke looks as if he is overdone and stretched. He probably had cheek implants, face lift, brow lift, upper blepharoplasty and lip fillers, possibly something permanent.”
“It is difficult to reverse any of this, except to put in smaller cheek implants or remove and revise the facelift to change the vector of pull so that it’s not so surgical. However, the eyes and lips can’t be reversed.”
Make Me Heal congratulates both Mickey and Marisa on their nominations and looks forward to seeing the beauty and the beast at the Oscars ceremony next month.
