Amanda Bynes is embracing her new look with positivity! The actress, 37, took to TikTok on Monday to candidly share the backstory of her decision to undergo blepharoplasty, an eyelid surgery that has positively impacted her self-confidence.
In her own words, the “She’s the Man” star revealed, “So I saw a couple of stories online that say I have a new look, and I was never open about this before, but I actually had blepharoplasty surgery on the skinfolds and the corner of my eyes. So, I don’t have those skinfolds anymore—it was one of the best things I could have ever done for my self-confidence and it made me feel a lot better in my skin.”
She went on to say, “So I just wanted to post about that just to clear up that rumour as to why I have a new look. I feel a lot better now about myself, and I’m so glad I had the blepharoplasty surgery. It was one of the greatest things I could’ve ever done.”

What is Blepharoplasty?
As the Mayo Clinic defines it, blepharoplasty is a surgical procedure designed to eliminate excess skin from the eyelids. The clinic notes, “Besides aging, severely sagging skin around the eyes can reduce side vision (peripheral vision), especially the upper and outer parts of the visual field.” According to the clinic, “Blepharoplasty can reduce or get rid of these vision problems. The surgery can also make eyes look younger and more alert.”
