Let’s see what Paul Stanley looked like in his youth and how his appearance changed after numerous plastic surgeries and botox injections.
How Paul Stanley Became a Rock Star
In childhood and adolescence, Paul Stanley did not pull on the role of a rock star. He was born with a congenital deformity of the auricle, which later led to unilateral deafness.
Paul Stanley had serious problems: deafness, bullying by peers, no support from parents and teachers, a mentally ill sister and lack of money.
Paul Stanley, thanks to the strategy of small victories, was able to overcome difficulties and created one of the most successful rock bands in the world.
In his book, the musician decomposes his achievements into their component parts and talks about each of these “small steps”.
He won his first small victory when he got a place in the choir circle in elementary school. The next one was when he grew his hair so that Jimi Hendrix—style curls covered his ears and no one could notice the defect in his appearance.
When Stanley played in his first band in high school, he hired a photographer to take some collective pictures. The photos turned out to be such that one of the top managers of the record company, when he saw them, said: “If you guys play as cool as you look, you have a great future ahead of you.”
When Stanley met his bandmate Gene Simmons, he knew it was a good idea to play together. The musicians were equally ambitious and focused on the overall result. In the end, Kiss became one of the best-selling rock projects around the world.
The legendary musician from the band Kiss began visiting a plastic surgeon back in the 1960s. The changes affected his face, eyebrows, eyelids, he had a nose job and lip augmentation surgery.
In 2022, the vocalist of the rock band Kiss celebrated his 70th birthday. By this age, the man had undergone almost all existing plastic surgeries: rhinoplasty, blepharoplasty (eyelid lift), facelift, lip augmentation and botox injections.
Paul Stanley spoke about the damage he received during various incidents on stage:
“I tore a bicep tendon, and it had to be surgically repaired. I tore the cartilage in both knees, and that was taken care of, too. I had a hip replacement. Modern medicine works wonders.”
