|Rhinoplasty played a trick on Jennifer Grey. After her successful role as the ugly-duckling teenager in Dirty Dancing, Jennifer Grey underwent nose surgery (rhinoplasty). She had not one but two nose jobs in the hopes that a better nose would advance her career. Fortunately for Grey, the plastic surgery had its intended effect on her appearance. Less fortunately, the surgery had an unintended effect on her career - after rhinoplasty she lost her special thing and finally her career failed to live up to its earlier promise and has relegated her to made-for-television films.
Dirty Dancing star Jennifer Grey's Hollywood dreams were shattered after a "nose job from hell" changed her appearance so drastically, she looked nothing like her former self. The 1980s star's promising career ground to a complete halt overnight in the early 1990s because suddenly nobody recognised her - and even friends would blank her when she bumped into them.
She says, "I went in the operating theatre a celebrity - and come out anonymous. It was like being in a witness protection program or being invisible. I remember going to a restaurant where I had been going for years. I ran into people I knew and would say, 'Hey.' Nothing. I'll always be this once-famous actress nobody recognizes... because of a nose job
