Have you ever thought about having plastic surgery? If so, you're not alone. In 2011 there were 13.8 million cosmetic plastic surgery procedures performed. Plastic surgery is a multimillion dollar industry and there are plenty of doctors willing to cash in. Some do amazing work, while other patients end up looking like Joan Rivers.

In the world of science-fiction there have been some amazing plastic surgeons, and some really psychotic ones. Here are seven plastic surgeons that cut, stretched and sliced their patient's into infamy.


1. Dr. Jaffe from Brazil (1985)

The most low tech facelift you could ask for. Dr. Lewis Jaffe took the skin and, literally, stretched the wrinkles out by clipping it to the side of his client's face. The results are impressive, but the dude could really use a better bed-side manner.



2. Joker's Plastic Surgeon From Batman (1989)
After Jack Napier (Jack Nicholson) got shot in the face and fell into a vat of acid, he went to an underground plastic surgeon. Besides the unsanitary conditions and the terrifying tools the psycho doctor managed to save the Joker's face, but made him unrecognizable. The guy obviously has some skill. Like he always said, "If you gotta go. Go with a smile!"



3. Riddick's Shine Job from Pitch Black (2000)

In the movie Pitch Black, an escaped prisoner named Riddick (Vin Diesel) can see in the dark. A handy skill when stuck on a planet of permanent darkness with ravenous aliens. According to the film, he pays a prison doctor 1000 cigarettes to do a "surgical shine job" on him. We don't know much about the psychotic doctor, but we know one thing: He made a killer more lethal than he could have possibly imagined. Not bad for a handful of smokes.



4. Ad'har Ru'afo from Star Trek - Insurrection (1998)
In an attempt to look young the alien Son'a began stretching their skin over their face. The psycho Captain Ru'afo was a frequent lover of "face stretching" and eventually decided to perform the procedure on a human. He obviously didn't have any training, since the results were not desirable.


5. Dr Moreau From The Island of Dr. Moreau (1996)
Dr Moreau (Marlon Brando) went one step above regular plastic surgery. He took animals and made them look like people. The movie implied genetic manipulation, but in the original book he did it through prolonged and extensive plastic surgery. Truly a psychotic genius.




6. Dr. Sulan From Star Trek: Voyager (1995)
While we're still struggling to do face transplants, the Phage from Voyager were transporting people's lungs from their bodies. When a disease ravaged their home planet, the Vidiian began harvesting organs from aliens to repair the damage caused by the disease. The greatest, and most psychotic of the race was Chief Surgeon Sulan. He kidnapped Lieutenant B'Elanna Torres and grafted another man's face onto his to flirt with her. It didn't work.


7. The Beverly Hills General Surgeon From Escape from L.A.(1996)

In the film Escape from L.A. Bruce Campbell plays the psychotic plastic surgeon known as the "Surgeon General." With his insanely huge cheek bones and other body parts, this psycho plastic surgeon would take body parts from helpless victims and bolt them onto other people. His big mistake was trying to take Snake Plisskin's eye (Kurt Russell).


If you're looking to have plastic surgery, these are the seven plastic surgeon you definitely don't want to go to. Unless, of course, you're Tara Reid. Then, you might want to have them do a little nip and tuck.

What do you think? Can you think of someone that obviously visited a psycho surgeon? Is there something you wouldn't mind having done?

Not a science fiction film, but the movie "Face Off" came to mind when I read the post title.

Anna Smith said...

Oh yeah Face Off is a brill movie. Haven't seen The Island Of Dr Moreau.  Will have to watch it and then go pay him a visit, I wana look like that! :P

M Pax said...

Yup, avoid those at all costs.

Neil Fernandes said...

LOL!! EPIC ending! :D I used to watch Voyager but I seriously dont remember Dr. Sulan! I was just a schoolkid then, but I guess I may have missed that episode...

And DUDE! How could you forget Dr. Heiter from The Human Centipede lol!

Sci-Fi Gene said...

Dr. Heiter indeed.

Or Dr. Ledgard (The Skin I Live In)?

Or how about Frank'n'Furter?

Or the ophthalmic surgeon in Minority Report? (the one with the well-stocked fridge)

Maurice Mitchell said...

Love the skin you're in Alex. Face/Off is a good one. Major surgery there.

Maurice Mitchell said...

Anna, make sure you post pictures! LOL

Maurice Mitchell said...

M Pax, especially the surgeon general. He didn't even wash his hands!

Maurice Mitchell said...

Neil, you're right. The Human Centipede doctor wins. Now, I have to use some brain soap to get rid of the image on my head. Anybody have some?

Maurice Mitchell said...

Great list Sci Fi Gene, although I never saw The Skin I Live In. Minority Report! Its obvious when I think about it.

Neil Fernandes said...

 Oooh I've heard The Skin I Live In is an awesome movie! Need to watch it...

These are simply amazing, I hope that they would continue to do these types of procedures.

Trina said...

This is an awesome list! I never thought there would be so many. It doesn't help that I'm reading this right before my Long Island plastic surgery.
