How things have changed. Just a decade ago, there was still a stigma attached to cosmetic surgery. Thankfully, today the stigma has fallen away and everyone can proudly take charge of their appearance and look their best.
Part of the reason that cosmetic surgery is happily accepted and mainstream today is because of celebrities. For years, tabloid newspapers printed speculations and rumors about celebrities getting a facelift or Botox. Today, rumors are unnecessary because many celebrities cheerfully admit to getting touched up!
One of the most popular cosmetic procedures that celebrities go for is blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery. The eyelids are one of the first areas of the face to show signs of aging, as the skin there tends to be thinner and more delicate. On-camera, this area is highlighted, so it is unsurprising that it is the go-to procedure for many of Hollywood’s biggest stars. Here are some of the celebrities who have gotten eyelid surgery and are thrilled with the results!
One of the handsomest and most successful actors of his age, George Clooney loves yanking the media’s chain about getting cosmetic surgery. Although some of his claims are obviously jokes (testicular ironing is NOT a thing), he has publicly said that he’s gotten eyelid surgery done. “I had my eyes done. Can you tell? I think it’s important to look awake.” As Clooney is a jokester, you can never be sure when he is serious or not. But looking at those eyes, we think we can believe that statement!
The star of Doctor Quinn: Medicine Woman has embraced many cosmetic surgery procedures, including eyelid surgery to prevent drooping and a minor breast augmentation after breastfeeding her children. She also says she is open to more procedures in the future.
Jane Fonda is a Hollywood legend. She’s starred in some of the most iconic movies of the twentieth century and is still a role model today. At the age of 73, Jane revealed that she uses a combination of exercise, healthy eating, and cosmetic surgery to maintain her famous looks. She has not only gotten eyelid surgery, but also a face and neck lift and some fat-reduction procedures.
Julie Chen, one of the best-known newscasters in America, has proudly admitted that she got eyelid surgery back when she was 25 years old and just breaking into the business. She has also stated that she is considering getting a nose job in the future.
If there is a poster girl for cosmetic surgery in all its forms, Dolly Parton is it. From her world-famous breast augmentation to brow lifts, face and neck lifts, and, of course, upper and lower eyelid lifts, she is a passionate believer and advocate for cosmetic surgery, joking, “I look at myself like a show dog. I’ve got to keep her clipped and trimmed and in good shape!”
Betty White is absolutely beloved all over America. At 95 years old, her career is still going strong. Although this Golden Girl was critical of cosmetic surgery for years, she finally revealed in her 2011 autobiography, If You Ask Me: (And of Course You Won’t), that she had eyelid surgery way back in 1976. She wrote, “It’s not nice to fool Mother Nature! But in 1976 I had my eyelids done. I scolded myself forever, but now I’m glad I did it.”
So, if these celebrities embraced the incredible results of cosmetic procedures like eyelid lifts, why shouldn’t you?
