We all know that celebrities are under a lot of pressure. Apart from strutting over the red carpets of the world, they are expected to look perfect at all times. Youth as a beauty ideal is mostly only attainable as long as one actually is young. That's why many celebs ask for the help of cosmetic surgeons in their quest for eternal youth. Quite often, plastic surgeries don't have the desired effect. With or without surgery, the following celebrities changed quite a bit.

#1 John Travolta

Back in the day, women went crazy for  John Travolta. He earned his place in our hearts by playing the part of "Danny Zuko" in Grease.

The beauty craze seems to have caught up with Travolta. His face looks increasingly frozen, which is apparently caused by a face lift and Botox.

Kevin Federline rose to international fame when he started dating Britney Spears. Their ensuing marriage from 2004 to 2006 was the reason for his numerous appearances in the yellow press. While the former dancer's appearance has changed, he still looks good today.

#7 Courteney Cox

Her role as "Monica" in the sitcom "Friends" is absolutely iconic! Courteney Cox was one of the extremely good-looking actresses back in the 90s, even if she too tried out some of the embarrassing trends of the 90s and early 2000s . Over the years she had several fillers which changed her appearance quite a bit. For a while, we almost didn't recognize her. Today, she's spoken out about having had her fillers removed. She's returned to her naturally beautiful face.

Britney Spears and Sam Asghari Got Married!

The couple said "yes!" in an intimate ceremony, Asghari's manager confirmed. They celebrated their love following the end of Spears's conservatorship seven months ago. The wedding was held in California and Paris Hilton, Drew Barrymore, and Madonna were among the 60 guests. Her sons, Sean Preston and Jayden James were not present, according to Kevin Federline's lawyer, but not because they were unhappy about the wedding.

There was some drama involved in the couples big day, since Spears's first husband, Jason Alexander, attempted to and succeeded in trespassing to disrupt the wedding party. He was arrested by Ventura County police.

Spears's parents, Jamie and Lynne Spears, and her sister Jamie Lynn were reportedly not invited to the wedding.

Since then, she has changed a lot and has become a spokesperson for body positivity and self love:
