12 Celebrities Who’ve Had Eyelid Surgery
Nov 27, 2017


Eyelid surgery, also known as blepharoplasty, is a surgical procedure to improve the appearance of the eyelids. While many people undergo eyelid surgery for cosmetic reasons, it has functional purposes as well. In some cases, blepharoplasty is performed to remove skin that impairs vision.

Eyelid surgery can have a dramatic, rejuvenating effect by giving the entire face a more rested appearance. This may be why it’s such a popular procedure among celebrities. Here are some A-listers who’ve had it done.
