The five-and-a-half-hour operation was not worth it, according to the 69-year-old British TV personality.
Sharon Osbourne is candidly speaking about a cosmetic procedure she underwent last year. In an interview with The Sunday Times, the British TV personality recounted a five-and-a-half-hour operation that “hurt like hell” and left her looking like a “f*cking Cyclops.” “I had a full facelift done in October and I looked like one of those fucking mummies that they wrap [with bandages],” she told the Times, according to PEOPLE. “It hurt like hell. You have no idea.” After the procedure was done, she said she told the plastic surgeon, “You’ve got to be f*cking joking.” The 69-year-old continued, “One eye was different to the other. I looked like a f*cking Cyclops. I’m, like, ‘All I need is a hunchback.’” According to the reality star, her husband, Black Sabbath frontman Ozzy Osbourne, agreed. “He said, ‘I don't care how much it costs, we’ll get it redone,’” she revealed.
Despite her initial reaction, the former America's Got Talent judge said she decided to allow her face to settle and is now happy with her appearance. Sharon has always been open about her numerous cosmetic procedures, including sharing details on The Kelly Clarkson Show about a facelift she had in 2019. "I had this thing where they lifted up my mouth and then for the first like week I'm like I couldn't feel my mouth, I can hardly feel my mouth now, to be honest with you," she said at the time. "I couldn't find my mouth. It was numb and it was up on one side and I looked like Elvis and all the kids and Ozzy are going, 'Why are you snarling at me?' And I'm like, 'I'm not snarling; I'm not doing anything!'"
Sharon has also tried experimenting with her hair color. For nearly 20 years, she had been dyeing her hair red but briefly decided to go for a more natural hue. Celebrity hair colorist, Jack Martin helped the 69-year-old with her makeover. But Sharon didn't enjoy the look for too long. On an episode of The Talk, she revealed that she "caught a glimpse of myself in the mirror and I’m like, ‘Nah, you look like Grandma Clampett,'” she told her then co-hosts, referencing Irene Ryan’s The Beverly Hillbillies character. “I said, ‘Nah, I’m changing it back.'”

Sharon has also decided that after 20 years in Los Angeles, she and Ozzy are leaving to return to the UK. "It's just our time to go home," she told the Times. "I don't want to be judged." According to CNN, she is now focused on her new project, a primetime evening show alongside Piers Morgan which is launching with News UK's new channel, TalkTV. Sharon left CBS' daytime talk show The Talk in 2021 after defending Morgan over his controversial departure from ITV's Good Morning Britain.
