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?
