I'm A Celeb's Janice Dickinson unrecognisable before surgery - botched ops to missing teeth

Janice Dickinson describes herself as the "world's first supermodel", but she looks unrecognisable after years of cosmetic surgery.

The 66-year-old I'm A Celebrity...South Africa star, shot to fame as one of the most successful models in the 70s and 80s.

But then she became "addicted" to cosmetic surgery.

Admitting to having a facelift, boob job, tummy tuck, neck lift, liposuction and Botox, the star spent thousands on the procedures.

As a result, she declared herself bankrupt in 2013 after falling into debt over unpaid cosmetic bills.

So, as the model puts on a brave face in the Kruger National Park on I'm A Celeb, here's what Janice has had done...

Botched boob job

Janice had a breast enlargement 30 years ago, but decided to go on Botched in 2015 to fix it.

Dr. Dubrow couldn't believe the model still had the implants inside her, as he told MailOnline: "My most challenging case overall was Janice Dickinson for sure.

"It was a wild ride it was like a ride at Disneyland that you know that was worth waiting in line for, you wanted to get on."

During the episode, Janice was seen swearing, demanding drugs and, after her implants were replaced - walking around naked.

Face lift

Prior to having a facelift in 2004, Janice explained the appeal of plastic surgery to Entertainment Tonight, saying: "I consider plastic surgery important because I'm in front of the camera, I still model, and, quite frankly, I was noticing my skin looking like a turkey wobbler.

"I'm just trying to hang on to what I got."

However, in 2007, her son Nathan said he was desperate for her to stop, a plea to which the model responded: "I won't do any more plastic surgery – if he's looking."

Tummy tuck and neck lift

Janice has admitted to having a tummy tuck, with claiming the self-confessed 'peoples's princess' "underwent a tummy tuck and "mini neck lift" in Beverly Hills in 2007.

A source told the publication that while "Janice knows people will think she didn't need a tummy tuck," she's been complaining about "a lot of extra skin" on her lower abdomen and wanted tighter abs.

The source added the star opted for the mini neck lift at the last minute because "she might as well since she was going under."

Botox and veneers

Speaking about her bankruptcy in 2013, Janice blamed cosmetic surgery for her financial woes, claiming in In Touch magazine: "press whore doctors offered to give me Botox and fix my teeth for free and then slapped me with bills."

However in 2011, Janice was left red-faced after losing two false teeth while dining with her pals at a swanky New York restaurant.

The model told New York Post: "It was the most incredulous moment that you'd never want to happen. I was so excited talking to (my friend) that I put my (temporary) teeth in my napkin, and then I couldn't find them. These things are so expensive they could feed a small village."

Lip fillers

Janice has always been blessed with a full pout, however her lips seem noticeably fuller in recent years.

The star denies she's had any filler, insisting "my lips are real".

However, after telling In Touch Magazine in 2014 she 'lived for plastic surgery', Janice has had "pretty much every facial plastic surgery there is", according to Dr. Anthony Youn.

The doctor, who hasn't treated Janice, told Radar Online: “I believe she’s undergone pretty much every facial plastic surgery there is, including a facelift, eyelid lift, lip injections, Botox, fat injections, and a brow lift. She’s probably single handedly paid for her plastic surgeon’s house!"

Despite her penchant for plastic surgery, there are some things Janice said she'd never do.

She reckons she won’t ever consider butt implants, or put anything in her cheeks - claiming she has the “perfect bone structure.”
