Kenny Rogers regrets plastic surgery but is hopeful
Country singer Kenny Rogers, 70, has often said he regrets his decision to have plastic surgery after he married a much younger woman in 1997.
But now, a decade later, he thinks the skin around his eyes is slowly loosening, so the surgeon’s work looks less extreme.
“I’m the plastic surgery king. I’m a bionic man! Every part of my body has been scooped or something at one time,” he told the National Enquirer. “I kind of wish I hadn’t done it. Looking back at some pictures of myself, my eyes were a lot warmer than they are now, and I miss that.”
He was embarrassed at first by how his eyes looked after surgery, he said.
“But as that stuff settles in it looks better and better. If I don’t die soon it’ll look great,” he said.
It’s a potential outcome that plastic surgeon / blogger Dr. Tony Youn described two years ago:
His plastic surgeon has apparently taken too much eyelid skin off, making his lids too tight. This is a big problem that is not easily corrected. For some people time will loosen it up a bit. For others, the only way to treat overly tight upper eyelids is to lengthen the eyelids with a skin graft.
It is very important for men to go to plastic surgeons who have a keen eye for not feminizing a man who doesn’t want it. Overly tight eyelids can make men look more effeminate. … Hopefully Kenny’s eyes will loosen up a bit!
Rogers said he had plastic surgery because felt under pressure to maintain a youthful appearance after marrying Wanda Miller, who is 29 years younger than he.
That was a bad decision, he said.
I didn’t want to be an old man with this young girl. I didn’t want to look like an old man. As you go through life, you make choices. Some are good, some are bad.
