Mickey Rourke After Surgery – Is it Better Now?
He was once considered a male sex symbol, but Mickey Rourke plastic surgery did bring him the wanted results. Instead, he looked even older than he was. The question is, how could it go so bad? Well, plastic surgery can be a risky business at times, as Rourke felt on his own skin.
Who is Mickey Rourke?
Mickey Rourke was born on September 16, 1952, in New York. He was very interested in sports, mostly boxing, so he decided to be an amateur boxer.
Mickey fought great, had a good record, but after a series of devastating blows, and a couple of concussions, he decided to throw in the towel, and later went on to acting. A smart decision, it seems, as it brought his net worth up to $15 million.
However, his love for boxing never faded and once again, Rourke tried out, as a professional this time, and had major success. He later returned to acting, having some major roles and winning multiple awards. At least in the movies, he could always play mean guys without the danger of getting hurt.
The rumors are that Mickey Rourke had surgeries mentioned below.
Always a fighter at heart, Rourke never appreciated his pretty boy image, and when he decided it was time to go back to boxing, he made that decision peacefully. Although he was a great fighter, some major injuries were inflicted to his face, so he needed reconstructive surgery. The mistake was not selecting a good surgeon.
Rourke later complained, not because of the injuries, but because he made the decision to trust the wrong guy. The surgeon left his face a mess, and many other surgeries had to ensue, in order to look normal again.
Nose Job and Facelift
Boxers do not have an easy life, and Rourke is the best example. Even after winning all six professional matches, his face was ruined, and he turned to plastic surgery, seeking of results. First surgeon was not very good, so he had to turn to other ones.
His nose alone took five corrective procedures to heal properly. This was the result of boxing, as he had it broken many times. It was not done purely for the looks, he had some trouble breathing as well. He needed to do a facelift, because his skin looked really ruined, but the doctor botched that operation as well, leaving him looking like the plastic man.
Return to Looking Good Again
Not only boxing, but the consummation of alcohol and possibly drugs, left Mickey Rourke looking old and washed up. But from the looks of things, his best years are ahead of him. Now 62 years old, he looks much better than 15 years ago. Saggy skin is now a thing of the past, as his face now looks almost wrinkle free.
Skin is perfectly toned, and stretched. His neckline is a lot sharper and more defined, not only because of the goatee though. Among many different surgeries he went through are facelift, neck lift, eyelid lift and another rhinoplasty.
Mickey Rourke Tattoos
He has many tattoos on his body, mostly done in black color. They stretch across his whole torso, and has a couple on the arms as well. Among them there is a cross, some memorial tattoos, Native American tattoos and tribal.
At the age of 61, Mickey was still into tattoos, as he was seen in a shop, and apparently had some work done on the left arm. Megan Fox was also inspired by him to make her own tattoo.

Mickey Rourke plastic surgery was at first a complete failure, but after many reconstructive procedures, turned out to be a success at the end of the day. He has been dating a young model since 2009, so do not feel bad for him. Maybe this is what pushed him to have a couple more procedures, which helped mend the damage done by boxing and incompetent doctors.
Either way, he now has that old school charm of a bad boy and returns as a stud he once was. A long way to overcome for one man, but that’s what Hollywood is.
