He repeatedly promised himself he would not go under the knife again unless it was for some form of “maintenance” work, but recent photos of Pete Burns seem to confirm that this was a promise he’s not been able to keep.
Though less than one month ago there was nothing out of the ordinary with his face (as compared to the way he previously looked, not to how a regular man may look) save for new piercings, Burns seems to have undergone a new procedure or series of procedures

Dressed in baggy jeans, flip flops and a cap over his long hair, the rocker seemed to make an attempt at flying under the radar – but with a face like that, it was not hard for paparazzi to realize who he was and to start following him around.
