Why Tori Spelling Has Regrets About Her Plastic Surgery

Tori Spelling is someone who was born into immense wealth and luxury and was lucky enough to have most things at her fingertips. But if there's one thing that she struggled with, it was her self-confidence. In fact, the former "Beverly Hills 90210" star admitted that she was bullied and trolled for her looks during a time in which she was trying to learn how to love herself.

Spelling got very candid in an Instagram post that she shared with her millions of followers back in 2020. She wrote, "Being put under a microscope as a young girl in her formative years was hard. I spent years begging makeup artists on my shows and movies to please try to make my eyes look smaller. I would cry over my looks in the makeup trailer chair."

Hollywood is a brutal place, even for someone as well-connected as the daughter of late television producer Aaron Spelling. And while there has always been a lot of speculation over the extensive surgery that Spelling supposedly got over the years, there's one particular procedure that she regrets. To find out, keep reading below!

Tori Spelling said her plastic surgery was minimal

Tori Spelling has always been very coy about what work she supposedly had done in years. She told Australia's 2DayFM (according to The Sun) that she only had her nose and breasts done over the years and that the work was minimal. However, she did admit that her own children didn't even recognize her in some of the "Beverly Hills 90210" reruns, which sure enough is testament to how much she has changed over the years. She also admitted that people have been talking about her looks since she was 17.

"The first time I showed my oldest kids was probably four or five years ago and they're 11 and 12 now and they couldn't find me in it. And they were watching a scene and I was like, 'OK, where's Mommy?' They're like, 'There's Jennie (Garth), there's Ian (Ziering),' and I'm like, 'And Mom...' and they're like, 'Nope,'" Spelling said.

Tori Spelling regretted her breast implants

Back in 2011, Tori Spelling admitted that if she could turn back time, she would never have gotten plastic surgery. However, she didn't refer to anything that was possibly done above the neck, but below instead. In an interview with Good Morning America, the now mother-of-five said that her biggest regret was getting breast implants when she was younger. And that's not because of how they looked, but because of how it impacted her ability to breastfeed her children. 

"Well I got my boobs done in my early 20's and if I had known it would or could possibly impact production of milk, I would never had had them done," she told GMA, according to NY Daily News.

Even though she's always been a huge television star, Spelling has made it no secret that her most important role in life is that as a mother. Regardless of what procedures Spelling may or may not have had, at least she has her priorities in the right place.

Tori Spelling long struggled with self-confidence

In 2008, Tori Spelling admitted that she had longed struggled with her self-confidence even as a child. And unfortunately, her own mother, Candy Spelling, seemingly didn't make things better on her. As a young girl growing up in Hollywood during her formative years, she was surrounded by picture-perfect television stars who set the standard for style and beauty. Spelling often looked at herself in the mirror — just like many young girls her age — and wondered if she could live up to it herself. Unfortunately, she didn't have the support that a girl her age needed from perhaps the most important person in her life that time: her role model and her mother.

In her 2008 memoir, "sTORI Telling," Spelling recalls getting ready for a portrait and asking her mother if she were pretty. She shockingly replied with (according to ABC News), "You will be when you get your nose done."

That moment set a precedent for what later became years of personal struggle for Spelling. "I was stunned," she wrote. "My nose, as noses tend to be, was right in the middle of my face, and I had just been told that it was ugly. So long, innocence." Between growing up on television sets with some of the most beautiful people in Hollywood and having a mother who even doubted your own self-worth, Spelling turned to plastic surgery in order for her to feel better about herself.
