Everyone wants to look their best and many of us do not think that “growing old gracefully” sounds like a fun thing to do. Let’s face it, staying “relevant” is the only way to advance in many careers so looking as young as you can becomes very important. Many men have come to believe in cosmetic procedures that improve their skin and help restore a youthful complexion. Many cited their reasons as not wanting to look like the ‘’old guy” in the office and wanting to be considered relevant in the workplace.
Imagine being a celebrity! Most can not even walk down the street without being photographed and critiqued, criticized, praised, etc. Many of us probably would not appreciate being the subject of unsolicited public opinion. Have you ever wondered what your favorite celebrity’s secret was for looking so great for their age?
Often, Celebrities Undergo Blepharoplasty To Look Younger
When celebrities begin to experience the natural signs of aging it can affect their livelihood. This is especially true for women (it is not fair but true) It is no wonder that many celebrity rumors revolve around cosmetic surgery and whether they did or did not “go under the knife”, which procedures they had, and where they had them done.
What is a bit interesting is that some celebrities are open and honest about any procedures they have had and others try to keep it all hush-hush. Most of us regular folk just want to learn their secrets so we can look younger too. Today we are going to talk about celebrity blepharoplasty and who may have gone under the knife.
How Does Blepharoplasty Work?
Blepharoplasty is a surgical procedure that removes excess skin and fat from above or below the eye to alleviate wrinkles, eyelid folds, and undereye bags. Upper blepharoplasty concentrates on the upper eyelid under the browline and lower blepharoplasty corrects issues under the lower lash line.
To perform an upper blepharoplasty, incisions are made in the creases of the eyelids and sagging skin and excess fat are removed. The surgeon connects the remaining skin with strategically placed tiny dissolving stitches. Removing the excess skin, opens up the eyes, provides a more visible upper eyelid, and can take years off the appearance.
Lower blepharoplasty is done by creating an incision just below the lashes and removing excess skin, redistributing excess, or both. This helps eliminate eye bags or puffiness that is caused by excess fat.
Who Are The Celebrities With Blepharoplasty?
It is hard to know all the celebrities who have had their eyes done. Some celebrities come clean about their eye surgery but some are just guesses made from comparing what are considered “celebrity before and after blepharoplasty” pictures.
1. Blake Lively
Blake Lively is famous for her many roles beginning with The Sisterhood Of The Traveling Pants, Gossip Girl, and many more. If you look closely at pictures of her from then to now, you will notice that a transformation took place but it was so perfectly subtle that it was hardly noticed. Look at the left-hand picture from 2005 and the right-hand shot from 2022 – notice not only the upper eyelids but the mouth and nose too.
2. George Clooney
This famous actor is man enough to admit he had his eyes done and even joked saying he thought it was important to look awake. LOL!
3. Jennifer Lawrence
It is possible that Jennifer Lawrence is one of the other celebrities with blepharoplasty on her list of beauty secrets. If you look closely you may notice that you can see more of the whites of her eyes and they look a bit larger and wider.
4. Kendall Jenner
It would appear that this may be another case of a celebrity upper blepharoplasty before and after. Kendall has somehow made her eyes look more open and her eyebrows are significantly lifted. It also appears that her nose looks thinner and her lips are much fuller.
5. Taylor Swift
Taylor was just 16 when she broke into stardom but she looks quite different than she did then. It is highly suspected that in addition to rhinoplasty, lip fillers, and breast implants, she is another blepharoplasty celebrity. There is no denying that her eyes appear significantly larger and open.
6. Tom Cruise
Tom Cruise has always been a handsome guy but he has always had eyes that appeared hooded. When looking at these pictures it appears that this may be another case of a celebrity upper blepharoplasty. Experts agree that when it comes to having cosmetic surgery, subtle changes are signs of a job well done. Tom still looks like himself, he just doesn’t look his age.
7. Renee Zellweger
Over the years, Renee has been the talk of media outlets about possible cosmetic surgeries. It is clear that her eyes are much changed in these pictures and it also looks like lip fillers were used too.
If you are considering undergoing eyelid surgery, the most critical decision you will need to make is that of your surgeon. Your eyes are the focal point of your face so you want to make sure that the surgeon you choose is board-certified and has a proven track record.
The best surgeons can help a person look too young for their age but still look like themselves. Look for a surgeon who is properly qualified, is up-to-date on the latest techniques, and understands your aesthetic vision.
