Country crooner Kenny Rogers has now sworn off plastic surgery. The 72 year old singer had previously admitted to undergoing botched eyelid surgery, and now states that he believes he is too old for more work. According to a recent interview with People, Kenny stated:
“At my age now, I would never do that again because I have two young kids and there’s a danger with any surgery,” Rogers said.
A couple thoughts:
1. In addition to blepharoplasty surgery, I bet he’s also had a facelift.
2. Seventy-two is not too old for plastic surgery. A bigger factor than age is health. I would rather operate on a healthy, nonsmoking 70 year old than a nonhealthy 40 year old smoker.
3. It’s good he has sworn off plastic surgery and not Gambling with his looks. He would look better if things aged normally for a while. Looks like he knows when to walk away and when to run!

Kenny Rogers Update:
It seems that he admits to having his eyelids done, but they are too tight. In a recent magazine he is quoted as saying:
“Last year I had so many lines coming in at the side of my eyes up here. So I went in and got my eyes done, and I’m not happy about it. (The surgeon) is going to go in and fix that for me. They’re too tight around the eyelids for me. It drives me crazy. I wake up in the morning, and Wanda says, “You look great.” But I know what I want to look like. If we can fix that, then I’ll be glad I did it. If we can’t fix it, I’ll regret it or get used to it. ”
Too bad for Kenny. 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. I’ve given lectures on this locally. Hopefully Kenny’s eyes will loosen up a bit!

The Gambler has gambled on some plastic surgery…and won?? Kenny Rogers was on “American Idol” tonight, looking pretty decent. I believe he’s had upper and lower eyelid lifts (blepharoplasty) performed, making his eyes look wide open. It’s a good job, since it doesn’t make him look too effeminate, like some men who appear to have had work done (Michael Douglas – eyelids, Robert Redford – eyelids, David Gest – yikes!). An upper eyelid lift takes about an hour, can be performed with twilight anesthesia (not general), and has a recovery time of a week or so. Pain is almost nonexistent.
By the way, I thought it was a lackluster night tonight on AI. I’m rooting for Chris, Kelly Pickler, or Mandiva (my favorite, Lisa, got voted off last week!). Bucky, Taylor and Ace need to hit the road!
