The pressure to look good in Hollywood is overwhelming. The industry perpetuates specific standards of beauty that most of the women in this world don't possess naturally. Many entertainers go under the knife in an effort to beat their competition by looking better than them. This need to fit in and negative self image creates a toxic environment, which often ends in regret. Some of the world's biggest stars are no exception.

More from MamásLatinas: Celebrities who have actually opened up about getting plastic surgery

According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, there were 1.8 million invasive cosmetic procedures and 15.7 minimally invasive jobs performed in 2017 in the United States! There is no doubt that many of the people getting this work done have been influenced by the "perfection" they see in the media. But these beloved figures that many of these patients want to emulate were not only not born this way, they don't like what they look like post-surgery, and they are often Photoshopped to portray an even more unrealistic version of themselves. It is impossible to keep up with how they look.

From routine botox injections to transformational breast augmentations to dangerous butt injections, the celebrities in this list have done it all. They wish they could take back the procedures they underwent and some have been lucky enough to reverse the changes they made. Today they are using their platforms to educate their followers and keep them from making a permanent mistake.

"I've tried [Botox] before, where it was like [a] little tiny touch of something,” she told Entertainment Tonight in 2014. “It changed my face in such a weird way that I was like, 'No, I don't want to [be] like [that]' … I'd rather see my face aging than a face that doesn't belong to me at all."

“I was 15 and I was insecure about my lips,” she shared during an episode of her show Life of Kylie last year. I have really small lips. And it was like one of my first kisses and a guy was like, ‘I didn’t think you would be a good kisser because you have such small lips.’ But I took that really hard. Just when a guy you like says that, I don’t know, it just really affected me. I just didn’t feel desirable or pretty. I really wanted bigger lips. I would overline my lips with lip liner just to create the illusion of bigger lips. And then finally I was like this lip liner isn’t doing it. [I] ended up getting my lips done.”
